Amazon Virtual Private Cloud VPCs and Amazon Aurora - Amazon Aurora

Amazon Virtual Private Cloud VPCs and Amazon Aurora

Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (Amazon VPC) enables you to launch AWS resources, such as Aurora DB clusters, into a virtual private cloud (VPC).

When you use an Amazon VPC, you have control over your virtual networking environment: you can choose your own IP address range, create subnets, and configure routing and access control lists. There is no additional cost to run your DB instance in an Amazon VPC.

Accounts that support only the EC2-VPC platform have a default VPC. All new DB instances are created in the default VPC unless you specify otherwise.

Note

EC2-Classic networking is retiring. The end of life is planned for August 15, 2022.

This documentation only discusses VPC functionality relevant to Amazon Aurora DB clusters. For more information about Amazon VPC, see Amazon VPC Getting Started Guide and Amazon VPC User Guide. For information about using a network address translation (NAT) gateway, see NAT gateways in the Amazon Virtual Private Cloud User Guide.
