Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) allows you to create a subnet of Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) instances that can act as your private network in the cloud. You can work with this VPC subnet independently in the cloud or use it with a virtual private network (VPN) connection to expand your organization's internal network.
You must create the VPC subnet before you deploy ArcGIS Enterprise. You create a subnet using one of the following:
- The ArcGIS Enterprise Cloud Builder for Amazon Web Services app
- The ArcGIS Enterprise Cloud Builder Command Line Interface for Amazon Web Services utility with the PREP command
- An Amazon Web Services (AWS) CloudFormation template provided by Esri
- AWS Management Console
- AWS APIs.
When an EC2 instance is in a VPC endpoint, the instance can only read and write to Amazon Simple Storage Service (S3) buckets in the AWS region in which the instance is deployed. If you want to use the webgisdr tool to back up your ArcGIS Enterprise deployment and want to store the backup content in an S3 bucket that's in a region other than the EC2 instance region, delete the VPC endpoint associated with the EC2 instance.
