This new Quick Start automatically creates a secure deployment of IBM WebSphere Liberty into a customizable environment on the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Cloud in about 40 minutes.
WebSphere Liberty is a fast, dynamic, and easy-to-use Java application server that combines IBM technology with open-source software built on the Open Liberty Project. WebSphere Liberty has a flexible, modular runtime, and can be extended or integrated with frameworks such as Docker, Chef, Puppet, Jenkins, and UrbanCode Deploy.
WebSphere Liberty provides a solid foundation for developing and running service-oriented architecture (SOA) applications on AWS, because of its fast startup times, ability to pick up changes without server restarts, and simple XML configuration. The Quick Start deploys WebSphere Liberty servers in a highly available, Multi-AZ environment. It configures Auto Scaling and Elastic Load Balancing, so you can scale instance capacity up or down, based on CPU thresholds that you specify. Amazon CloudFront is included as an optional content delivery service, to enable caching of static content at edge locations. This architecture also includes an end-to-end SSL/TLS implementation using AWS Certificate Manager (ACM) Certificates.
Quick Starts are automated reference deployments that use AWS CloudFormation templates to deploy key technologies on AWS, following AWS best practices.
