This Quick Start reference deployment guide includes architectural considerations and configuration steps for deploying a modular Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (Amazon VPC) environment on the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Cloud. It also provides links for viewing and launching AWS CloudFormation templates that automate the deployment.

The guide is for IT infrastructure architects, DevOps engineers, and administrators who would like to build a flexible, modular AWS networking infrastructure as a baseline for their deployments.

The following links are for your convenience. Before you launch the Quick Start, please review the architecture, configuration, and other considerations discussed in this guide.

  • If you have an AWS account and you’re already familiar with AWS services, you can launch the Quick Start to build the architecture shown in Figure 1 in your AWS account. The deployment takes approximately 5 minutes. If you’re new to AWS, please follow the step-by-step instructions provided later in this guide.
