This new Quick Start automatically deploys HashiCorp Nomad, which is a distributed cluster manager and scheduler for deploying applications, on the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Cloud.

This Quick Start uses AWS CloudFormation templates to deploy HashiCorp Nomad into a virtual private cloud (VPC) in your AWS account. The modular implementation uses and extends three other Quick Start reference deployments: 

The architecture spans three Availability Zones for high availability, and includes NAT gateways and Linux bastion hosts for Internet connectivity. The Quick Start sets up a configurable number of HashiCorp Consul and HashiCorp Nomad server and client instances within separate Auto Scaling groups. You can build a new VPC for HashiCorp Nomad, or deploy the software into your existing VPC. You can customize your deployment by configuring your network resources and customizing the instance type and capacity for the Nomad and Consul nodes. 

The Quick Start also includes a guide with step-by-step deployment and configuration instructions, and a sample Nomad file to help you get started. To deploy Nomad on AWS, use the following resources:
