In late August Amazon launched support for its Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) to help bridge the gap between existing IT infrastructures and its public cloud.
The RightScale Dashboard allows you to create, view and delete VPC's, as well as Subnets. Before getting started in the Dashboard, we recommend getting some background information from AWS. Please look over the Features & Benefits as well as the VPC Blog entry in the "See also" section below.
Note: The August release of VPC is considered beta from AWS, as is the September and October Dashboard releases from RightScale that support VPC.
The following are the primary components in building out a Virtual Private Cloud:
Note: Our initial September release with VPC support only allowed #1 and #2 above to be completed from the Dashboard UI. Numbers 3-5 needed to be completed using AWS command line tools or the AWS API itself. We now support all five steps from within our Dashboard. See the VPC related tutorials in the parent directory for more information. (Support Portal -> Clouds -> Multi-cloud)
