This new Quick Start deploys a highly available Drupal architecture on the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Cloud in about 30 minutes. Deploying Drupal on AWS makes it easy to use AWS services to further enhance the performance and extend functionality of your content management framework. The deployment uses Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2), Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (Amazon VPC), Amazon Relational Database Service (Amazon RDS), and Amazon Elastic File System (Amazon EFS). 

Drupal is an open-source, content management platform written in the PHP server-side scripting language and provides a backend framework for many enterprise websites. 

AWS CloudFormation templates automate the deployment and provide customization options for network resources, Drupal settings, and AWS services.
