Spinnaker on AWS

Continuous deployment tool from Netflix OSS on the AWS Cloud

This Quick Start deploys Spinnaker, which is a continuous deployment tool from Netflix Open Source Software (OSS), on the AWS Cloud. Spinnaker provides cluster management features for cloud resources such as server groups, security groups, and load balancers, and deployment management features, to create and manage continuous delivery workflows.

The Quick Start builds a virtual private cloud (VPC) with private and public subnets and secure internet access, deploys a Spinnaker instance into the private subnet, and sets up IAM users and roles.
