I am working on a project to move classic EC2 to a VPC of it's own. I have read that using ClassicLink allows me to keep the security groups and potentially communicate with classic EC2 instances within this newly created VPC to other EC2 instances outside of the VPC.
My question is this: I am pondering whether to keep going this route of using ClassicLink and connecting classic EC2 instances to this new VPC or to create a brand new VPC and use the current EC2s and recreate the Security Groups (I'd rather go with this option to get with the times). What are the pros and cons to both options? In addition, say I go with the latter and there is a classic EC2 instance I would need to do some kind of VPC Peering or even classic Link on that particular instance. Is that possible with creating a current VPC?
Thanks for the help.
