Extend Your IT Infrastructure with Amazon Virtual Private Cloud December 2013 Page 3 of 17 Introduction With Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (Amazon VPC), you can provision a private, isolated section of the Amazon Web Services (AWS) cloud where you can launch AWS resources in a virtual network that you define. With Amazon VPC, you can define a virtual network topology that closely resembles a traditional network that you might operate in your own data center. You have complete control over your virtual networking environment, including selection of your own IP address range, creation of subnets, and configuration of route tables and network gateways. For example, with VPC you can: Expand the capacity of existing on-premises infrastructure. Launch a backup stack of your environment for disaster recovery purposes. Launch a Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) compliant website that accepts secure payments. Launch isolated development and testing environments. Serve virtual desktop applications within your corporate network. In a traditional approach to these use cases, you would need a lot of upfront investment to build your own data center, provision the required hardware, acquire the necessary security certifications, hire system administrators, and keep everything running. With VPC on AWS, you have little upfront investment, and you can scale your infrastructure in or out as necessary. You get all the benefits of a secure environment at no extra cost; AWS security controls, certifications, accreditations, and features meet the security criteria set out by some of the most discerning and security-conscious customers in large enterprise as well as governmental agencies. For a full list of certifications and accreditations, go to the AWS Compliance Center .
