Before you spin up any EC2 instance, you need to have some information available. Firstly, you should create an RSA key pair , save, and secure it. In addition, you have to choose an AMI. And then you need to know your network details such as VpcID, subnet, and Security Groups. We have already gone through the process of creating various network components. Refer to the previous chapter for more details. If you do not specify anything, defaults will be used for EC2. Let's get started.
