Creating a Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) - Amazon MemoryDB for Redis
Services or capabilities described in Amazon Web Services documentation might vary by Region. To see the differences applicable to the China Regions, see Getting Started with Amazon Web Services in China.

Creating a Virtual Private Cloud (VPC)

In this example, you create a virtual private cloud (VPC) based on the Amazon VPC service with a private subnet for each Availability Zone.

Creating a VPC (Console)

To create a MemoryDB cluster inside an Amazon Virtual Private Cloud

  1. Sign in to the Amazon Management Console, and open the Amazon VPC console at https://console.amazonaws.cn/vpc/.

  2. In the VPC dashboard, choose Create VPC.

  3. Under Resources to create, choose VPC and more.

  4. Under Number of Availability Zones (AZs), choose the number of Availability Zones you want to launch your subnets in.

  5. Under Number of public subnets, choose the number of public subnets you want to add to your VPC.

  6. Under Number of private subnets, choose the number of private subnets you want to add to your VPC.

    Tip

    Make a note of your subnet identifiers, and which are public and private. You will need this information later when you launch your clusters and add an Amazon EC2 instance to your Amazon VPC.

  7. Create an Amazon VPC security group. You will use this group for your cluster and your Amazon EC2 instance.

    1. In the left navigation pane of the Amazon Web Services Management Console, choose Security Groups.

    2. Choose Create Security Group.

    3. Enter a name and a description for your security group in the corresponding boxes. For VPC, choose the identifier for your VPC.

    4. When the settings are as you want them, choose Yes, Create.

  8. Define a network ingress rule for your security group. This rule will allow you to connect to your Amazon EC2 instance using Secure Shell (SSH).

    1. In the left navigation pane, choose Security Groups.

    2. Find your security group in the list, and then choose it.

    3. Under Security Group, choose the Inbound tab. In the Create a new rule box, choose SSH, and then choose Add Rule.

      Set the following values for your new inbound rule to allow HTTP access:

      • Type: HTTP

      • Source: 0.0.0.0/0

    4. Set the following values for your new inbound rule to allow HTTP access:

      • Type: HTTP

      • Source: 0.0.0.0/0

      Choose Apply Rule Changes.

Now you are ready to create a subnet group and create a cluster in your VPC.
