In this learning activity we will create a spread placement group with an instance in two different availability zones. We are going to verify that enhanced networking is enabled on that type of instance, and then we will use `aws configure` to review the Placement Group from the CLI.
Our final step will be using `iperf` to benchmark network throughput speeds between the Linux instances. Let’s get our hands dirty and jump into this Hands-On Lab.
Successfully complete this lab by achieving the following learning objectives:
- Create a Spread Placement Group
Create a Spread Placement Group using the AWS Console.
- Add the Amazon EC2 Instances to the Spread Placement Group
Add two instances to the Spread Placement Group, and ensure they are in different availability zones.
