Amazon Virtual Private Cloud allows you to provision Amazon machine instances in a private section of the Amazon Web Services cloud.

Amazon AWS users can create a Amazon VPC to design a virtual network topology according to your specifications. You can assign a Amazon VPC in vCloud Automation Center. However, vCloud Automation Center does not track the cost of using the Amazon VPC.

Use the AWS Management Console to create the following elements:

An Amazon VPC, which includes Internet gateways, routing table, security groups and subnets, and available IP addresses.

An Amazon Virtual Private Network if users will need to log in to Amazon machines instances outside of the AWS Management Console.

vCloud Automation Center users can perform the following tasks when working with an Amazon VPC:

A fabric administrator can assign an Amazon VPC to a cloud reservation. See Create an Amazon AWS Reservation (VPC).

A machine owner can assign an Amazon machine instance to an Amazon VPC.

For more information about creating an Amazon VPC, see Amazon Web Services documentation.
