We covered networking fundamentals earlier in the course. Well now it's time to bring that understanding to AWS and creating some virtual networks.

Networking in AWS can get very complicated. In large environments, networking can span multiple AWS accounts, be blended across AWS and physical hardware, and be a mix of AWS and another Cloud provider, or mix of all of those things. We're going to be keeping it simple by keeping it all inside of a single AWS account.

Go ahead and attach such as role now and login as the cloud-admin user.
