Get Started with Elastic Load Balancing

After you have read What Is Elastic Load Balancing?, and you have decided to load balance your Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) instances, it's time to get started with basic load balancing tasks. Your first task will be to create a load balancer.

You can create your load balancer in EC2-Classic or Amazon VPC platforms. For more information, see Supported Platforms.

If you are creating a load balancer in EC2-Classic, see Create a Basic Load Balancer in EC2-Classic.

If you are creating a load balancer in EC2-VPC, see Create a Basic Load Balancer in EC2-VPC.

If you are creating your load balancer in default VPC, see Create a Basic Load Balancer in Default VPC.
