Take a look at the definition and creation of a virtual private cloud within AWS.
- [Instructor] So the first thing that we need to do is to create a Virtual Private Cloud or a VPC as Amazon likes to call it. You can think of a virtual private cloud as just a collection of resources that we'll be using within this video series. So let's go ahead and scroll down. Right now we're looking at the list of services that are available through Amazon. And you can see right here in the Networking and Content Delivery section, we have an option for VPC so I'm gonna go ahead and click on that and that's going to take me to the VPC dashboard. So what I wanna do from here is to click on the button to start the VPC Wizard and this is going to take us into a section that's going to allow us to create our own VPC.
So you can see that we have four options right here along the left side of the screen and we wanna go with the option to create a VPC with a single public subnet so the default option is VPC with a Single Public Subnet. I'm going to make sure that's selected and then click the Select button and so now I'm taken to a screen that asks me to provide several different pieces of information. So the first thing that we have to provide is an IPv4 CIDR block and you can see that right now that's set by default to 10.0.0.0/16.
And in case you're wondering, CIDR is the classless internet domain routing number so this is essentially our IP address range. And for the purposes of this video, I'm going to stick with the defaults. But if you do this in real life, you will certainly want to make note of the CIDR block that you choose to use. The next thing that we have to do is to provide the VPC name. Any VPC or Virtual Private Cloud that you create has to have a name associated with it so I'm gonna go with the name AWSPoseyLab. The next thing that we have to do is to choose a public subnet IPv4 CIDR.
And once again, I'm gonna go with the default here of 10.0.0.0/24. Again in real life, you wanna make a note of the address range that you specify right here because we're going to need to refer back to these later on. So we're going to go with the defaults for the availability zone and then we do have to provide a subnet name. So for the subnet name, I'm just going to put AWS so that we know that this subnet is associated with the AWS side of things so I'll enter AWS right there and we don't have to worry about doing anything with regard to service endpoints or our DNS hostnames other than making sure that the DNS hostnames option is enabled so you can see that that's set to Yes.
And then I'll click the button to Create VPC and it takes just a second to create that. And when that finishes, we see a message saying that our VPC was successfully created. I'll click OK and now we're taken back to our VPC dashboard and we can see our newly created VPC right here. So that's how you go about creating a VPC.
