MuleSoft Anypoint Runtime Fabric on Amazon EKS

Deploys Runtime Fabric on your Amazon EKS cluster

This solution deploys MuleSoft Anypoint Runtime Fabric on an Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (Amazon EKS) cluster that you create, configure, and manage.

Anypoint Runtime Fabric runs as a service on Amazon EKS. With Runtime Fabric, you can run Mule applications, composite APIs, and API gateways on Amazon Web Services (AWS). MuleSoft Anypoint Platform centrally manages your Amazon EKS cluster and its associated API endpoint.

This Quick Start was developed by MuleSoft in partnership with AWS. MuleSoft is an AWS Partner.

  •  What you'll build
  • This solution sets up 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.*
    • 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, Kubernetes nodes running Runtime Fabric services in an Auto Scaling group.
    • An Application Load Balancer (not shown) to route traffic to the Mule API instances in the private subnets.
    • Amazon EKS, which provides the Kubernetes control plane for the cluster.
    • AWS Systems Manager to manage Mule deployments.

    * 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 this solution, follow the instructions in the deployment guide. The deployment process takes about 15 minutes and includes these steps:

    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 and third-party licenses used while running this Quick Start. There is no additional cost for using the Quick Start.

    To use Runtime Fabric, you must acquire and install a product license. To acquire a license, contact your account representative or the MuleSoft sales team.

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

    Tip: After you deploy the Quick Start, 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 aggregates the data at the end of the month. For more information about the report, see  What are AWS Cost and Usage Reports?
