VPC Layout

There are lots of choices for VPC and Account Architectures, and this is mostly out-of-scope for this workshop. Take a look at what Androski Spicer presented at re:invent 2018 in his From One to Many: Evolving VPC Design session. In our case, we are going to provide three types of VPCs:

  1. Non-production VPCs: We might create several of these to house our training, development, and QA resources.
  2. Production VPCs: This is for our live production systems.
  3. Shared Resources: For resources and services that we want shared across all VPCs.

Also, we need a VPC to represent our on-premise environment, a simulated datacenter.

  1. Datacenter: In this workshop we need to simulate a datacenter. In the real world, this would be our existing datacenter or colo and the hardware it contains. But we are going to make our own version in the cloud!
