Course Description

In this challenge, you will configure a repeatable AWS Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) environment by using a custom launch template. First, you will launch a custom EC2 instance that contains a pre-installed web server, and then you will attach an extra Amazon Elastic Block Storage (EBS) data disk. Next, you will create an Amazon Machine Image (AMI) based on an existing instance, and then you will create a launch template based upon the custom AMI. Finally, you will launch a new web server EC2 instance by using the custom launch template. Note: Once you begin a challenge you will not be able to pause, save, or return to your progress. Please ensure you have set aside enough time to complete the challenge before you start.
