Create a two web servers using the AWS EC2 service and the scripts provided.
Create and Configure a Target Group
In this challenge, you will build out a Target Group which the web servers will be assigned to. Target Groups allow ALB (Application Load Balancers) the ability to route traffic to EC2 instances within the target group. When needing to route traffic by language or region, this is one way to successfully manage that traffic without much interruption or confusion with other web servers.
Deploy and Test the Application Load Balancer
In this challenge, you will deploy and configure an Application Load Balancer to balance web traffic between two web servers.
