VPC Networking

VPC (Virtual Private Cloud) networking is a service provided by Amazon Web Services (AWS) that enables users to create and manage virtual networks in the cloud. It allows users to create isolated, private network environments within the AWS cloud that are logically separate from other networks and that can be customized to meet specific requirements. With VPC networking, users can create virtual networks that are similar to traditional on-premises networks, with complete control over IP addressing, subnets, and routing. VPCs provide several features and capabilities, including the ability to create and manage subnets, set up security groups and network access control lists (ACLs), and connect to on-premises networks and the public internet.
