This hands-on lab provides an introduction to Inter-Region VPC Peering, which allows for VPC peering between VPCs in two different regions. The lab walks through configuring VPCs in two different regions and setting up the peering connection between the two VPCs. We'll configure an EC2 instance on a public subnet in the N. Virginia (us-east-1) region and create a private instance in the Oregon region. It is necessary to share a key pair between the two regions, in order to allow the EC2 instance in N. Virginia to access the private instance in Oregon.

What are Hands-On Labs?

Hands-On Labs are scenario-based learning environments where learners can practice without consequences. Don't compromise a system or waste money on expensive downloads. Practice real-world skills without the real-world risk, no assembly required.
