Lab 6: Creating and Using AMIs
I start off by creating images of my Webserver and my Queue server.
Now I just need to wait for the images to be created, I can monitor the progress in the AMI menu.
Now that they have finished I can launch them, I will start with the Webserver.
I set it up with the same group as the master Webserver.
When I was creating an image I could have selected another zone for redundancy but for the purpose of this lab I left it as is.
Now I opened up the URL of my main web server to show it;s up and running.
This lab show’s the importance of creating images for your VM’s it goes to show how easy it is to get up and running again if there was ever a critical issue. There really is not reason not to have backup images sitting there.
