Guided Lab: Creating an Amazon EC2 instance (Linux)

Description

Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) is a web service that allows you to easily create and manage virtual servers in the cloud. With Amazon EC2, you can set up and configure your own operating system and applications as per your requirements.

An Amazon EC2 instance is a virtual server that can be launched on AWS Cloud. When you launch an instance, it is secured with a key pair, which is used to prove your identity, and a security group that works as a virtual firewall to control incoming and outgoing traffic. When connecting to your instance, you must provide the private key of the key pair that you specified while launching the instance.

In this lab, you will be using Amazon EC2 to launch a virtual server with a Linux operating system. This hands-on experience with cloud computing will help you understand how to use Amazon EC2 as a start for your own projects.

In this lab, you will learn how to:

  • Create an EC2 instance (t2.micro)
  • Configure a security group for SSH access
