We are pleased to announce that AWS OpsWorks now supports Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (Amazon VPC). With Amazon VPC, you can define a virtual network topology and customize the network configuration to closely resemble a traditional network that you might operate in your own datacenter. This release lets you take advantage of the application management benefits of AWS OpsWorks in your own isolated network to support common scenarios such as using a private source repository behind your firewall, running databases in a protected subnet, or using application servers in a private subnet behind a public load balancer. All it takes to get started is to create an AWS OpsWorks stack using a new or existing Amazon VPC. You can then create OpsWorks instances in any subnet that you have created.

To learn more about how to use AWS OpsWorks with Amazon VPC, see the documentation for a step-by-step example or join our AWS OpsWorks webinar on September 12, 2013 at 10:00 AM PT.
