Description

The VPC - Virtual Private Network - lies at the core of most significant deployments on AWS. VPCs allow you to create the balance between secure isolation and resource integration that fits your unique needs best. You have complete control over traffic coming into and out of your network and, using AWS route tables, network gateways, and subnets, you can permit only the access you need and nothing more.

This course - part of Cloud Academy's networking series from the Intermediate level of the AWS Core Services Track - explores the architecture and function of a VPC, giving you everything you'll need to design and use VPCs productively in your own infrastructure.
