Step 2: Create Your Resources in the AWS GovCloud (US) Region

  1. Create two web application Amazon EC2 servers via the AWS GovCloud (US) console and confirm that they are in a running state. Configuring the web servers on the Amazon EC2 instances is outside of the scope of this section.

  2. Create an Elastic Load Balancing load balancer and add the two instances created in the previous step to the load balancer. Confirm that the instances are in service and note the DNS name of the newly created load balancer.

  3. Test access to your website by entering the load balancer DNS name in a web browser. You can verify the load balancer is balancing traffic between the two instances by waiting at least one minute between requests.
