Amazon Web Services (AWS) announces the general availability of Build on AWS, a new offering from AWS Activate designed to help startups build their infrastructure on AWS in minutes. Build on AWS is a collection of infrastructure templates and reference architectures covering a wide variety of solutions curated specifically for startups. These solutions are built by experts at AWS and based on AWS best practices. This enables startups to focus on building their core product knowing they’re using AWS best practices for their underlying cloud infrastructure. With the launch of Build on AWS, we’ve simplified the first steps of launching scalable, reliable, secure, and optimized infrastructure tailored to startups’ industry or use case.

Build on AWS features CloudFormation templates and reference architectures. CloudFormation templates are deployable with a single click, and reference architectures contain an architecture diagram that can be replicated. Within Build on AWS, startups will find basic solutions and personalized solutions. Basic solutions contain core solutions to get started on AWS, including Hosting a Wordpress Website on Amazon Lightsail and Building a Data Processing API using Serverless. A guided path is also provided to help startups choose and deploy the right solution. Personalized solutions are solution templates that are relevant to the startups’ industry, interests, and AWS usage. Startups also have the ability to search through all of the templates by use-case or by underlying AWS services. With hundreds of deployments, every template is ready for production traffic.
