Using the Amazon EC2
Amazon Web Services (AWS) provides various services and Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) is one of the services. Amazon EC2 may be used to create a virtual host server. Amazon EC2 provides a wide selection of instance AMIs (Amazon Machine Images) to choose from when creating a virtual server. In this Appendix we shall discuss creating and configuring Amazon EC2 instance/s for installing Docker and Docker images. Amazon EC2 instance is not a requirement to run Docker software and an alternative platform, local or remote, may be used instead.
