This new Quick Start automatically deploys GitHub Enterprise on the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Cloud, to provide a configurable infrastructure for your coding and deployment tasks. 

GitHub Enterprise is a development and collaboration platform built on Git that enables developers to build and share software easily and effectively. It provides an integrated platform for continuous integration and development, a non-linear workflow for collaboration, and in-depth monitoring and auditing for administrators. 

This Quick Start uses AWS CloudFormation templates to deploy GitHub Enterprise into a virtual private cloud (VPC) in your AWS account. You can build a new VPC for GitHub Enterprise, or deploy the software into your existing VPC. You can customize your deployment by configuring your network resources and modifying the instance type and storage options for the GitHub Enterprise web server. The Quick Start also sets up a sample GitHub organization and repository for testing and trying out GitHub Enterprise on AWS. 

The Quick Start includes a guide with step-by-step deployment and configuration instructions. To get started, use the following resources:

    -   View the architecture and details
    -   View the deployment guide
    -   Browse and launch other AWS Quick Start reference deployments

About Quick Starts
Quick Starts are automated reference deployments for key workloads on the AWS Cloud. Each Quick Start launches, configures, and runs the AWS compute, network, storage, and other services required to deploy a specific workload on AWS, using AWS best practices for security and availability. This is the latest in a series of Quick Starts built by AWS in collaboration with AWS partners to automate the deployment of popular products and technologies on AWS.
