Deploying Sunlight in Amazon Web Services (AWS)
Urgent Note - 21 Sep 2022 - SAUS update 4.0.22
We are temporarily disabling the create AWS cluster from the SIM platform. More information to follow on future release.
The Sunlight platform can be deployed as a fully managed cluster on the AWS baremetal infrastructure. The recommended approach is to deploy your own instance of a Sunlight Infrastructure Manager dashboard with appropriately configured IAM policy. When configured with correct IAM properties you are then able to deploy and manage Sunlight clusters natively in AWS selecting from any of the Metal server type listed below.
Bare Metal Instances
Supported Amazon baremetal instances include some number of direct attached Non-Volatile Memory Express (NVMe) storage drives which are optimized for low latency, very high random I/O performance, and high sequential read throughput, delivering high IOPS. In addition, every metal type server also provides access to the high performance AWS elastic network hardware providing up to 25 Gbps of network bandwidth.
