DataSunrise with Amazon Redshift on AWS

Streamlined database protection and security

This Quick Start automatically deploys DataSunrise with Amazon Redshift on the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Cloud in about 20 minutes.

This Quick Start is for users who want streamlined database protection of an Amazon Redshift cluster by using DataSunrise deployed as a high availability (HA) cluster.

DataSunrise is cross-platform, high-performance software that secures databases and data in real time, and helps protect companies’ sensitive data from outside threats and internal security breaches.

DataSunrise supports databases and data warehouses that include Amazon Aurora MySQL, Amazon Aurora PostgreSQL, Amazon Redshift, Amazon DynamoDB, MariaDB, MongoDB, MySQL, PostgreSQL, Apache Hive, and others.

This deployment uses Amazon Relational Database Service (Amazon RDS) for PostgreSQL.

This Quick Start was developed by DataSunrise, Inc. in collaboration with AWS. DataSunrise is an APN Partner.

  •  What you'll build
  • Use this Quick Start to automatically set up the following environment on AWS:

    • A highly available architecture that spans two 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 Classic Load Balancer configured in the public subnets as the connection endpoint, to serve incoming database traffic to an available and healthy DataSunrise instance.
    • 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.*
    • In the private subnets: 
      • A DataSunrise host in an Auto Scaling group to allow an inbound database connection via the Classic Load Balancer and SSH access from a Linux bastion host.
      • Two Amazon RDS for PostgreSQL instances to store DataSunrise configuration and audit data.
      • An Amazon Redshift cluster inside a subnet group. The subnet group spans two subnets to enable restoring from a snapshot, in case a disaster occurs in the Region.
    • Amazon CloudWatch connected to DataSunrise instances for receiving custom metrics.
    • AWS Secrets Manager to store sensitive DataSunrise data.

    *  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
  • To deploy the DataSunrise with Amazon Redshift environment in your AWS account, follow the instructions in the deployment guide. The deployment process takes about 20 minutes and 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, choosing from the following options:
    3. Test the deployment by using the DataSunrise web console or by connecting via SSH to a Linux bastion host and from there connecting to any DataSunrise instance.

    Amazon may share user-deployment information with the AWS Partner that collaborated with AWS on this solution.  

  •  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 templates for this Quick Start include configuration parameters that you can customize. Some of these settings, such as database 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 Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon 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 the AWS documentation.
