To create a VPC

  1. Sign in to the AWS Management Console and open the Amazon VPC console at https://console.aws.amazon.com/vpc/.

  7. Choose Create VPC, and then choose OK.

  8. In the list of VPCs, find AWSKafkaTutorialVPC and copy its ID from the VPC ID column. Save this ID somewhere because you need it in some of the following steps.
