How to launch, configure, and access a Linux virtual machine using AWS

Lab Overview

Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) is one of the most popular AWS services. EC2 allows you to launch different types of cloud instances and pay for them with a pay-per-use model. EC2 allows you to have operating system level control of your computing resources while running in Amazon’s computing environment. Amazon EC2 reduces the time required to obtain and boot new server instances from days or weeks to minutes. This allows you to quickly scale capacity, both up and down, as your computing requirements change. Amazon EC2 allows you to buildĀ and configure your instances as you like, from your desired operating system to your applications.

By completing this hands-on lab, you will be able to launch and configure your first Amazon EC2 instance using the AWS Management Console.
