Welcome to this hands-on AWS lab where we will be creating and testing a VPC peering connection.

You will gain knowledge and experience with:

  1. Creating a VPC
  2. Creating a VPC peering connection
  3. Editing route tables for the peering connection
  4. Launching EC2 instances in each VPC
  5. Testing the connection over SSH using private IP addresses

VPC peering connections are important in many scenarios. If your organization has resources in different regions or has business partnerships that may need access to your VPC, it is important to know how to create and configure these connections. They can also be used to satisfy security regulations.

Good luck and enjoy the lab!
