UiPath Automation Suite on AWS

Manage your Linux-based UiPath automation platform

This Partner Solution deploys UiPath Automation Suite on the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Cloud. Using Automation Suite, you can deploy the full UiPath Automation Platform in a Linux environment that supports both a single-node evaluation mode and a multi-node production profile. You can also integrate with existing enterprise systems, such as Microsoft Active Directory, Azure Active Directory, or SAML.  

This Partner Solution provides multiple deployment options. By default, the solution creates a virtual private cloud (VPC) infrastructure with multiple Availability Zones with UiPath Automation Suite deployed in both public and private subnets.

This Partner Solution was developed by UiPath in collaboration with AWS. UiPath is an AWS Partner.

  •  What you'll build
  • This Partner Solution sets up the following:    

    • A highly available architecture that spans two or more 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.*
    • In the public subnets:
      • A Linux bastion host to control inbound SSH (Secure Shell) access to Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) instances in the private subnets.
      • Bastion security group for controlling inbound access to the bastion host instance.
    • In the private subnets:
      • Security groups for controlling access to the Kubernetes server and agent nodes.
      • An Application Load Balancer or a Network Load Balancer to balance inbound traffic between all Kubernetes nodes.
      • An Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling group with Kubernetes agent nodes. 
      • An Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling group with Kubernetes server nodes. 
      • An internal Network Load Balancer to balance traffic between the Kubernetes server nodes.
      • A database subnet security group for Amazon Relational Database Service (Amazon RDS) database instances running Microsoft SQL Server.
    • Amazon Elastic File System (Amazon EFS) for storing backup data.
    • AWS Certificate Manager (ACM) for domain registration with an SSL certificate.
    • Amazon Route 53 as Domain Name System (DNS) provider to route traffic to the Application Load Balancer.
    • AWS Secrets Manager for secure storage of cluster configuration and platform-generated credentials.
    • Multiple AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM) roles granting access to various operations required during deployment and installation.
