Should I put my development and production environments in the same VPC, or should I have 2 separate VPCs?  Just wondering about best practices regarding this.

Hi AncAK,

you do not have to make 2 VPCs, all you need to do is have your development and production environments into 2 different subnets. that would literally make them separated. You can also control who and whatever needs to connect into one using IAM.

The best practices as AWS suggest is that you have a on premises or local development server which is connected to AWS as staging and production area. but if you wanted all your developers on AWS, then you should create separate EC2 for them to work onto. again, on a different subnet.

And i suggest that you should leverage on AWS Elastic Beanstalk as well.

Please check the following for further information:
