This Quick Start automatically deploys a modular, highly available environment for Amazon Aurora PostgreSQL on the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Cloud in about 25 minutes.

Aurora is a fully managed relational database engine that’s compatible with MySQL and PostgreSQL. The code, tools, and applications you use today with your existing PostgreSQL databases can be used with Aurora. With some workloads, Aurora can deliver up to three times the throughput of PostgreSQL without requiring changes to most of your existing applications. Aurora is part of the Amazon Relational Database Service (Amazon RDS) and takes advantage of Amazon RDS features for database management and administration.

This Quick Start is for users who are looking for a repeatable, customizable reference deployment for Aurora PostgreSQL. The Quick Start is automated by AWS CloudFormation templates that deploy the Aurora PostgreSQL architecture into a new or existing virtual private cloud (VPC) in your AWS account. You can also use the Quick Start as a building block in your own automated deployments.  

To get started:

You can also download the AWS CloudFormation templates that automate the deployment from GitHub.
