Amazon AWS-Step 4: Assign an Elastic IP Address to Your Instance
In the previous step, you launched your instance into a public subnet — a subnet that has a route to an Internet gateway. However, the instance in your subnet also needs a public IP address to be able to communicate with the Internet.
Amazon AWS-Step 3: Launch an Instance into Your VPC
When you launch an EC2 instance into a VPC, you must specify the subnet in which to launch the instance. In this case, you’ll launch an instance into the public subnet of the VPC you created.
Amazon AWS-Step 2: Create a Security Group
A security group acts as a virtual firewall to control the traffic for its associated instances. To use a security group, you add the inbound rules to control incoming traffic to the instance, and outbound rules to control the outgoing traffic from your instance.
Amazon AWS-Step 1: Create the VPC
In this step, you’ll use the Amazon VPC wizard in the Amazon VPC console to create a VPC. The wizard performs the following steps for you:
Amazon AWS-Getting Started with Amazon VPC
In this exercise, you’ll create a VPC and subnet, and launch a public-facing instance into your subnet.

Amazon S3 is a simple key, value store designed to store as many objects as you want. You store these objects in one or more buckets. An object consists of the following: Key – The name that you assign to an object. You use the object key to retrieve the object. For more information, see… Read more »
Managing Access Permissions to Your Amazon S3 Resources
By default, all Amazon S3 resources—buckets, objects, and related subresources (for example, lifecycleconfiguration and website configuration)—are private: only the resource owner, an AWS account that created it, can access the resource. The resource owner can optionally grant access permissions to others by writing an access policy. Amazon S3 offers access policy options broadly categorized as resource-based… Read more »
