Getting Started with Amazon VPC

The following tutorials help you set up a nondefault VPC quickly. If you need resources in your VPC to communicate over IPv6, you can set up a VPC with an associated IPv6 CIDR block. Otherwise, set up a VPC with an associated IPv4 CIDR block.

If you already have a default VPC, you can get started by launching instances into your default VPC, without creating or configuring a new VPC. For more information, see Launching an EC2 Instance into Your Default VPC.
