An AWS VPC is in use by default when you create your first account. The VPC is a virtual network within your deployment at AWS. As with any network, you should split up your resources into multiple networks for segmentation/isolation/protection of resources. Through the use of VPCs, we were able to successfully divide up our resources into logically separated areas, providing access to areas based on the role of the user/application/system, instead of full access across the board.
  • Protection of resources based on how roles/access should be allocated.
  • Easy to allocate network CIDR block and split up as needed for IP subnets within the VPC.
  • Used to create public and private networks within the VPC.
  • The biggest issue with VPC networks is knowing how you can leverage VPC endpoints to ensure your resources within the VPC are not reaching out over the Internet to get to AWS services such as S3 and others.
If you are going to deploy within AWS, you need to know how to leverage VPCs. VPCs have several items you must configure for them to be usable and to even link one VPC to another. If you are only going to deploy a few resources or use some of the default configurations, you still need to have working knowledge of how a VPC functions. If you are used to working with VLANs and the ideology behind those, that is the best direct reference to how a VPC can be described, but with additional layers on top of that with route tables, internet gateways, etc.
