This new Quick Start automatically deploys Pivotal Cloud Foundry (PCF), a cloud-native platform for deploying and operating modern enterprise applications, on the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Cloud. 

With PCF on AWS, you can deploy and run your Spring or .NET apps in the cloud, with PCF handling complex operational tasks. The PCF environment on AWS provides built-in monitoring, logging, rapid scaling, and four levels of high availability. You can also use the PCF Service Broker for AWS to enhance your applications with AWS services such as Amazon Relational Database Service (Amazon RDS), Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3), Amazon DynamoDB, and Amazon Simple Queue Service (Amazon SQS). 

The Quick Start is automated by AWS CloudFormation templates that you can customize during launch. You can choose from two deployment sizes: a Starter deployment that you can add more capacity to later, or a Multi-AZ deployment that’s designed for near production-grade use. You can also use the templates as a starting point for your own implementation, by downloading them from the GitHub repository. The Quick Start includes a guide with step-by-step deployment and configuration instructions.
