Liquibase Pro on AWS

Versioning and deploying database code

This Quick Start deploys Liquibase Pro to the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Cloud. Liquibase Pro helps align database code changes with application code changes by using a version-based approach to update your database.

Liquibase Pro integrates with the AWS Cloud to provide Amazon Relational Database Service (Amazon RDS) PostgreSQL database code changes using a continuous integration and continuous delivery (CI/CD) pipeline.

  •  What you'll build
  • This Quick Start sets up the following:

    • AWS Secrets Manager to store sensitive information, such as database user names, passwords, and the Liquibase Pro license key.
    • AWS CodeCommit to store and manage database scripts.
    • Amazon CloudWatch events to monitor changes to the AWS CodeCommit repository and invoke new builds.
    • AWS CodePipeline to model, visualize, and automate the steps required to release your software.
    • AWS CodeBuild to compile source code, run unit tests, and produce artifacts that are ready to deploy.
    • Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) for storing artifacts and logs for auditing purposes.
    • 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.*
    • Inside the VPC, three Amazon Relational Database Service (Amazon RDS) PostgreSQL databases for testing, staging, and production environments.

    * 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.

  •  Cost and licenses
  • You are responsible for the cost of the AWS services and any third-party licenses 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 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, create AWS Cost and Usage Reports to track costs associated with the Quick Start. These reports deliver billing metrics to an Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) bucket in your account. They provide cost estimates based on usage throughout each month and aggregate the data at the end of the month. For more information about the report, see What are AWS Cost and Usage Reports?
