Create an AWS EC2 instance: AWS Administration: Tips and Tricks

The ability to create a VM in AWS is a core skill required for becoming a skilled sysadmin on the AWS platform. This video shows you how to provision an instance using the EC2 service. Learn how to size your instance, select an image (we'll look at Windows server images specifically), configure networking and storage, and set up a security group. Plus, look at tagging the instance, which can help with billing arrangements, and connecting to the VM via EIP. EIP is a static public IP, by default you are supplied with a dynamic public IP, which makes it harder to mange.
