Configure and Test a Placement Group on AWS

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.
