TIBCO Cloud Integration - BusinessWorks (TCI-BW) on AWS

Create services and applications in a visual, model-driven development environment

This Quick Start sets up an AWS architecture and deploys TIBCO Cloud Integration - BusinessWorks (TCI-BW) on the AWS Cloud, using Amazon Elastic Container Service (Amazon ECS) host instances and an Amazon Elastic Container Registry (Amazon ECR) repository for plug-ins.

TIBCO Cloud Integration - BusinessWorks is an integration product suite that enables you to create services and applications in a visual, model-driven development environment. It provides a drag-and-drop UI, a graphical data mapper, and a large library of connectors, including plug-ins for Advanced Message Queuing Protocol (AMQP), data conversion, Microsoft Dynamics CRM, Apache Kafka, MongoDB, IBM WebSphere MQ, OData, Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3), ServiceNow, and Salesforce, and more.

Note   An earlier version of this Quick Start was published under the product name TIBCO BusinessWorks Container Edition (BCWE). TIBCO has renamed their product suite, and BWCE is now referred to as TIBCO Cloud Integration - BusinessWorks (TCI-BW).

This Quick Start was developed by TIBCO Software in collaboration with AWS. TIBCO is an AWS Partner.

AWS Service Catalog administrators can add this architecture to their own catalog.

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

    • A highly available architecture that spans two Availability Zones.*
    • A VPC configured with public and private subnets according to AWS best practices, to provide you with your own virtual network on AWS.*
    • An internet gateway to allow access to the internet.*
    • In the public subnets, managed NAT gateways to allow outbound internet access for resources in the private subnets.*
    • In one of the public subnets, your TCI-BW Studio instance (TCI-BW design time).
    • In the private subnets, your Amazon ECS host instances in an Auto Scaling group. These instances manage and host your Amazon ECS applications.
    • An Amazon Elastic Container Registry (Amazon ECR) repository that contains a TCI-BW image with optional plug-ins installed. You can choose one or more plug-ins during the deployment process.
    • (Optional) An Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) bucket to store plug-ins.

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

  •  How to deploy
  • To build your TIBCO Cloud Integration - BusinessWorks (TCI-BW) environment on AWS, follow 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
    2. Subscribe to the Amazon Machine Image (AMI) for TIBCO Cloud Integration - BusinessWorks in AWS Marketplace.
    3. Launch the Quick Start. Each deployment takes about 25 minutes. You can choose from two options:
    4. Test the deployment by verifying that TCI-BW is running and accessible.

    To customize your deployment, you can configure your VPC, subnets, ECS cluster, and TCI-BW settings. You can also install plug-ins to enhance your development experience and integrate with different services and applications.

  •  Cost and licenses
  • You are responsible for the cost of the AWS services used while running this Quick Start reference deployment. You will also be charged for the apps you deploy on your Amazon ECS cluster. 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, 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.

    This Quick Start requires a subscription to the AMI for TIBCO Cloud Integration - BusinessWorks, which is available from AWS Marketplace, and additional pricing, terms, and conditions may apply. BusinessWorks Container Edition and Plug-Ins for AWS follows a Flexible Consumption Pricing (FCP) model. This pricing model enables you to pay only for the number of containers running per hour and gives you flexibility to scale on demand and manage software costs as you scale.

  •  Resources
  • This Quick Start reference deployment is related to a solution featured in Solution Space that includes a solution brief, optional consulting offers crafted by AWS Competency Partners, and AWS co-investment in proof-of-concept (PoC) projects.

  •  Demo
  • This demo was created by TIBCO Software and solutions architects at AWS for evaluation or proof-of-concept (POC) purposes on the AWS Cloud. For production-ready deployments, use the TIBCO Cloud Integration - BusinessWorks Quick Start.

    This demo automatically deploys a simplified version of architecture for TIBCO Cloud Integration - BusinessWorks into your AWS account. After the demo is up and running, you can use the demo walkthrough guide for a tour of product features. The demo walks you through deploying multiple microservices to an Amazon ECS cluster. These containerized deployments include: Consul, Open-Tracing, an account service application, and a customer service application.

    To deploy:

    1. If you don't already have an AWS account, sign up at
    2. Sign up to launch the demo. After you answer a few questions and submit the sign-up form, the AWS CloudFormation console will launch.
    3. In the console, provide the requested information to launch the demo.

    Estimated time: 25-30 minutes for deployment, 10 minutes for walkthrough

    Cost: You are responsible for the cost of the AWS services used while running this demo. There is no additional cost.
