Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (Amazon VPC) lets you set up a private cloud (a private, isolated section) within the Amazon Web Services (AWS) cloud computing service. Using Amazon VPC, organizations can launch AWS resources in a virtual network topology.
Amazon VPC provides organizations complete control over the virtual networking environment, including selection of your own IP address range, creation of subnets and configuration of route tables and network gateways.
Amazon Virtual Private Cloud Security Features
Additionally, Amazon VPC provides security features such as security groups and network access control lists to enable inbound and outbound filtering at the instance level and subnet level. Users can also choose to launch Dedicated Instances that run on hardware dedicated to a single customer for additional isolation.
