Amazon Virtual Private Cloud

Amazon Web Services has just introduced their Virtual Private Cloud (Amazon VPC). The AWS website states that Amazon VPC is a secure and seamless bridge between a company's existing IT infrastructure and Amazon. It enables enterprises to connect their existing infrastructure to a set of isolated AWS compute resources via a Virtual Private Network (VPN) connection, and to extend their existing management capabilities such as security services, firewalls, and intrusion detection systems to include their AWS resources.

Amazon VPC integrates with the Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) which provides businesses scalable computing resources on an as-needed, pay-as-you-go basis eliminating the need for the hardware and human resources required to manage traditional data centers. Despite its numerous benefits, cloud computing has met a lot of skepticism as many express concerns in trusting third party vendors with their information. Amazon has introduced the VPC to alleviate these privacy and security concerns.

Amazon VPC is in limited beta so some usage limitations and restrictions do apply.
