By the end of this project, you will have successfully created a virtual private cloud using Amazon Web Services and launched a virtual machine instance in that cloud. A virtual private cloud is a secure, isolated private cloud hosted within a public cloud. Virtual private clouds allow users to establish a higher level of security and privacy within the cloud structure while taking advantage of the scalability offered by cloud providers.
