What Is a VPC?
The first step in deploying a public Tezos node on AWS is to deploy the VPC CloudFormation script. VPC stands for Virtual Private Cloud, and creates a virtual network where all your AWS resources will be deployed.
Log into the AWS console, and navigate to Services > CloudFormation. Click “Create Stack” and choose “With new resources”
Walk through the CloudFormation steps
Step 1: Specify Template
In the specify template section, choose “Upload a template file” and select the
public-vpc.cloudformation.yaml file. Then hit next.
Step 2: Specify stack details
The only thing you’ll need to do here is specify a stack name. I’ve chosen
node-vpcs. Hit next.
Step 3: Configure stack options
You don’t need to do anything here. Click next.
Step 4: Review
Check the acknowledgement checkbox and click “Create stack”
The CloudFormation script will allocate resources and set everything up for you. You can monitor its progress in the Services > CloudFormation > Stacks list and clicking on your VPC CloudFormation stack.
