There’s just something about the fresh start you get with a new job. Both my previous job and my new one began with the opportunity to build a new infrastructure from scratch. In both cases, as is common with startup infrastructure in its early stages, everything was to be built using Amazon Web Services (AWS), specifically using its Elastic Cloud Computing (EC2) infrastructure. Two significant things had changed in the years between the two jobs that led me to a fresh approach to the infrastructure, and those are the things I’m going to explore in this article: Amazon’s Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) and the AWS command-line tools.
