How to Create and Manage EC2 Instance in Amazon Web Services (AWS)

Ths article provides guide for creating, launching, and managing an EC2 instance in Amazon Cloud.

Before you begin AWS, Please read our previous articles to understand about Amazon EC2 instances and Amazon Services.

Step 1. Sign Up for AWS

To create an AWS account, Open, and then choose Create an AWS Account

Follow the  instructions and complete the signup process.

Step 2. Launch EC2 instance

1. Open the Amazon EC2 console from aws services

2. Choose Launch Instance , Before you launch instance you can select your instance location

3. Choose an Amazon Machine Image (AMI)

4. Choose an Instance Type, Choose Next: Configure Instance Details

Micro instances are eligible for the AWS free usage tier. For the first 12 months following your AWS sign-up date, you get up to 750 hours of micro instances each month. When your free usage tier expires or if your usage exceeds the free tier restrictions, you pay standard, pay-as-you-go service rates.

5. Configure Instance Details and add storage

6. Add Storage. While adding storage, you can select Storage Size and Storage Type

Free tier eligible customers can get up to 30 GB of EBS General Purpose (SSD) or Magnetic storage. Learn more about free usage tier eligibility and usage restrictions

7. Tag Instance and Configure Security Group

8. Configure Security Group. 

A security group is a set of firewall rules that control the traffic for your instance. On this page, you can add rules to allow specific traffic to reach your instance. For example, if you want to set up a web server and allow Internet traffic to reach your instance, add rules that allow unrestricted access to the HTTP and HTTPS ports. You can create a new security group or select from an existing one 

9. Review Instance and Launch

10. Download your Instance Key Pair and launch Instance

A key pair consists of a public key that AWS stores, and a private key file that you store. Together, they allow you to connect to your instance securely. For Windows AMIs, the private key file is required to obtain the password used to log into your instance. For Linux AMIs, the private key file allows you to securely SSH into your instance.
