A VPC (Virtual Private Cloud) is an AWS resource that represents a local network. Different VPCs can be defined within the AWS cloud to logically separate different systems.
Refer to the AWS documentation for more information.
In this section we will create a VPC for testing LifeKeeper (named LK-VPC) as follows:
- Select “Your VPCs” from the navigation pane located at the left side of the console.
- There is a VPC created by AWS (default VPC). However, we are going to create a custom VPC based on the specification defined in this evaluation guide. Select “Create VPC” in the top right corner.
- In the “Create VPC” wizard, enter the name of the VPC (LK-VPC) and the IPv4 CIDR block 10.20.0.0/16.
- Now the VPC LK-VPC is created with the parameters specified.
