Deploy The Lab Base Infrastructure

In this section, we will build out a Virtual Public Cloud (VPC), together with public and private subnets across two Availability Zones, Internet Gateway and NAT gateway along with the necessary routes from both public and private subnets.

This VPC will become the baseline network architecture within which the application will run. When we successfully complete our initial stage template deployment, our deployed workload should reflect the following diagram:

To deploy the template for the base infrastructure build follow the approptiate steps:

1.1. Get the Cloudformation Template.

To deploy the first CloudFormation template, you can either deploy directly from the command line or via the console.
