Web Server Using Amazon EC2

View Code Deploy

An example based on the Amazon sample at: http://docs.aws.amazon.com/AWSCloudFormation/latest/UserGuide/deploying.applications.html. The example deploys an EC2 instance and opens port 80.

Deploying the App

To deploy your infrastructure, follow the below steps.


  1. Install Pulumi
  2. Configure Pulumi for AWS
  3. Install .NET Core 3.0+

Deploying and running the program

  1. Create a new stack:

    $ pulumi stack init dev
  2. Set the AWS region:

    $ pulumi config set aws:region us-west-2
  3. Run pulumi up to preview and deploy changes:

    $ pulumi up
    Previewing changes:
    Performing changes:
    info: 10 changes performed:
        + 10 resources created
    Update duration: 26.470339302s
  4. View the host name and IP address of the instance via stack output:

    $ pulumi stack output
    Current stack outputs (2):
        OUTPUT          VALUE
        PublicDns       ec2-34-217-176-141.us-west-2.compute.amazonaws.com
  5. Verify that the EC2 instance exists, by either using the AWS Console or running aws ec2 describe-instances.

  6. From there, feel free to experiment. Simply making edits and running pulumi up will incrementally update your stack.

  7. Once you’ve finished experimenting, tear down your stack’s resources by destroying and removing it:

    $ pulumi destroy --yes
    $ pulumi stack rm --yes
