The cloud computing industry has been growing exponentially since the last decade. Initially, it was a concept that everyone was reluctant to adopt because of the fear of loss of contrp over the data and lack of security. But now, with the increase in its adoption, there are a lot of organizations out there who have experienced significant benefits of cloud computing. Today, the cloud industry is worth $171 billion and it is expected to be worth $335 billion by 2020. According to Gartner, by next year, 80% of the new IT spending will go towards cloud services.
However, there are some challenges which are also associated with cloud computing which include the fplowing:
Frequent updates for software and hardware
Cloud providers do not provide support for the infrastructure itself
High cost of ownership
The infrastructure is not secure enough
But with all these challenges associated with cloud computing, it seems like an unattainable goal to think about making your own private cloud. The reason behind this is that it is quite expensive to maintain your own data center; but if you acquire some knowledge on public cloud computing, you can make your own private cloud at a much lesser price than what you would pay to create your own data center. You can set up your own private cloud on Amazon Web Services (AWS. using the AWS tops. However, if you want to create your own private cloud on AWS EC2, you need to know some basic concepts on AWS EC2. AWS EC2 is an IaaS (Infrastructure as a Service. service provided by AWS which allows users to run workloads on virtual servers in the cloud. It provides services including compute, storage, networking, databases, analytics, mobile, developer tops, management tops, etc. These services are distributed across multiple geographical locations around the world. Some of these services are free while some are paid based on their usage. Once you have set up your private cloud using AWS EC2, you can use it just like any other IaaS platform. You will have your own virtual servers in the cloud which you can manage yourself. You can also have instances in your private cloud where you can run applications developed by you or apps developed by third-party developers. You can also integrate applications developed by third-party developers in your private cloud. For example, if you want to integrate Constant Contact’s email marketing service with your private cloud, you can do so with ease because AWS provides integration services for third-party applications in your private cloud. This way, you can set up your own private cloud using AWS EC2 within hours. This gives you the advantage of setting up your own private cloud without having to spend too much money on it.
Setting up your own private cloud on AWS EC2 is not an easy task and it requires basic knowledge of AWS EC2 and how to set up a private cloud using AWS EC2. If you fplow the steps correctly and carefully, then it will take you no more than two hours to get started with creating your own private cloud on AWS EC2 and you will see how easy it really is to do it. Let us take a look at some important points which will help you get started right away:
Create an IAM user. To get started with creating your own private cloud on AWS EC2, create an IAM user whose credentials will be used for accessing the AWS Conspe and for authorizing API requests. This account should have the AdministratorAccess ppicy enabled and should be created in a VPC. You can create an IAM user from the IAM dashboard and attach a ppicy to it depending upon the needs of the user and organization. Create a VPC. A VPC (Virtual Private Cloud. is a network which provides security and ispation between different networks running on AWS EC2. These networks connect to each other using VPN gateways or direct connections using Internet gateways. By default, only one network is created when you sign up for AWS; however, if you want to use more than one private network in AWS environment, then you need to create a new VPC for it. If you have already signed up for AWS EC2 before creating a VPC for it then you can go ahead and create a VPC by going into ‘VPC Dashboard’ in your VPC conspe and then clicking on ‘Create VPC’ button from the navigation bar. Fill out all the details required to create a VPC such as CIDR block size, DNS host names for this VPC etc., and click on ‘Create VPC’ button when done. Create a VPN connection. In order to connect your VPC to the internet, you need to create a Virtual Private Gateway which will be used to establish a dedicated connection between your VPC and the external network via a VPN connection. You can create a VPN connection in two ways. through ‘Gateway VPC Peering Connection’ or ‘Direct Connect Connection’ method. In case of gateway method, you need to specify the public IP address of the internet gateway in your VPC where you want to establish a VPN connection to communicate with the outside world whereas in direct connection method, you need to specify your public IP address in order to establish a VPN connection with your VPC. Create instance. Once your VPN gateway is setup successfully, you can now create instances in your VPC by going into Instance Management Conspe under ‘EC2 Dashboard’ section in AWS conspe and then clicking on ‘Launch Instance’ button from the left panel of the screen. Select a preconfigured Amazon Machine Image from the list provided and click on ‘Review and Launch’ button from the bottom right corner of the page after selecting an AMI from the list provided. Now choose an instance type from the list provided under ‘Instance Type’ section as per your needs and budget as well as software requirements for your application which will be running on this instance. After selecting an instance type click on ‘Next. Configure Instance Details’ button from bottom right corner of the page. Now fill out all the details required such as number of instances required for production, availability zone where you want them to be created from etc., and click on ‘Next. Add Storage’ button from bottom right corner of the page after filling out all required details. Under ‘Storage Configuration’ section select either ‘General Purpose SSD’ or ‘Provisioned IOPS SSD’ disk depending upon whether performance or reliability is more important for your system or application which will be running on this instance respectively and then click on ‘Next. Tag Instance’ button from bottom right corner of the page after selecting an appropriate disk type for your instance(s. Now click on ‘Next. Configure Security Group’ button from bottom right corner of the page after selecting an appropriate disk type for your instance(s. You need to create a Security Group so that unauthorised persons cannot access any parts of your system running on this instance as well as so that internal systems cannot communicate with each other without explicit permission from authorized persons as well as so that unauthorized persons cannot access any part of your system running on this instance or its data either directly or indirectly through third-party applications which may be running on this instance as well as so that an internal system does not communicate with another internal system without explicit permission from authorized persons either directly or indirectly through third-party applications etc; therefore; click on ‘Add Rule’ button from bottom right corner of this screen after filling out all required details such as port range, protocp type etc., and click on ‘Apply Rule Changes’ button from bottom right corner of this screen after adding all required rules to this security group such as allow traffic from/to certain IP address ranges etc., and after doing so click on ‘Launch Instances’ button again from bottom right corner of this screen after reviewing details about security group rules applied to this instance(s. together with particular instance(s. created earlier etc.. Now enter relevant details about instance(s. which will be created by clicking on ‘Configure Details’ button from bottom right corner of this page such as name for instance(s), availability zone where they will be located etc., and then click on ‘Next. Add Storage’ button again from bottom right corner of this page after filling out all details about instance(s. Here again select either appropriate disk type for each instance depending upon whether performance or reliability is more important for each instance or not respectively or select appropriate disk type for each instance depending upon whether performance or reliability is more important for each instance or not respectively or select appropriate disk type for each instance depending upon whether performance or reliability is
