Boomi Kubernetes Molecule on AWS

Scale and run multiple integration processes concurrently

The Boomi Kubernetes Molecule is a single-tenant, clustered runtime that runs separately from the platform, enabling multiple processes to run concurrently. The Boomi Molecule can be deployed across multiple servers to enhance load balancing and ensure high availability for mission-critical integration processes.

Boomi Kubernetes Molecule on AWS uses Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (Amazon EKS) to help add or remove nodes as dictated by resource demands. This allows the Molecule to elastically add nodes to meet high-volume demands and remove those nodes when they are no longer required to support operational efficiency and cost-savings efforts.

This Quick Start is for users who are looking for an integration platform as a service (iPaaS) that can be hosted on Amazon Web Services (AWS). Using the Quick Start, you can deploy a Boomi Molecule cluster on AWS and administer it through the Boomi AtomSphere platform.

  •  What you'll build
  • Use this Quick Start to automatically set up a Boomi Molecule cluster on AWS. The deployment includes the following:

    • A highly available architecture that spans three Availability Zones.*
    • A virtual private cloud (VPC) configured with public and private subnets according to AWS best practices, to provide you with your own virtual network on AWS.*
    • A Network Load Balancer.
    • In the public subnets:
      • Managed network address translation (NAT) gateways to allow outbound internet access for resources in the private subnets.*
      • A Linux bastion host in an Auto Scaling group to allow inbound Secure Shell (SSH) access to Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) instances in public and private subnets, with Amazon CloudWatch for monitoring.*
    • In the private subnets:
      • Amazon EKS cluster with the Boomi Kubernetes Molecule software installed, one pod in each Availability Zone.
      • Amazon Elastic File System (Amazon EFS) deployed in the Region. Three Amazon EFS mount points are created also, one in each Availability Zone.

    *  The template that deploys the Quick Start into an existing VPC skips the components marked by asterisks and prompts you for your existing VPC configuration.

  •  How to deploy
  • After you sign up for the Boomi Free Trial and obtain access to Boomi Kubernetes Molecule, you can deploy a Boomi Kubernetes Molecule cluster on AWS in about 1 hour by following the instructions in the deployment guide. The deployment process includes these steps:

    1. If you don't already have an AWS account, sign up at, and sign in to your account.
    2. Launch the Quick Start. You can choose from the following two options:
    3. Test the deployment. You can also add more instance types and sizes.

    Amazon may share user-deployment information with the AWS Partner that collaborated with AWS on the Quick Start.  

  •  Cost and licenses
  • You are responsible for the cost of the AWS services used while running this Quick Start reference deployment. There is no additional cost for using the Quick Start.

    The AWS CloudFormation template for this Quick Start includes configuration parameters that you can customize. Some of these settings, such as instance type, will affect the cost of deployment. For cost estimates, see the pricing pages for each AWS service you will be using. Prices are subject to change.

    Tip   After you deploy the Quick Start, we recommend that you enable the AWS Cost and Usage Report to track costs associated with the Quick Start. This report delivers billing metrics to an S3 bucket in your account. It provides cost estimates based on usage throughout each month, and finalizes the data at the end of the month. For more information about the report, see What are AWS Cost and Usage Reports?

    This Quick Start requires an account with Boomi, a Dell Technologies business. The Boomi account used to stage this Quick Start will determine the licensing model that applies. To get started, sign up for the Free Trial. You will then receive a call from a Boomi Sales Engineer, who will enable access to Boomi Molecule.
