Deploying ArangoDB on AWS

ArangoDB can be deployed on AWS or other cloud platforms. Deploying on a cloud provider is common choice and many of the most big ArangoDB installation are running on the cloud.

Up to ArangoDB 3.2, official ArangoDB AMI were available in the AWS marketplace. Such AMI are not being maintained anymore, though. However, deploying on AWS is still possible, and again, a quite common scenario.

After having initialized your preferred AWS instance, with one of the ArangoDB supported operating systems, using the ArangoDB Starter, performing a Manual Deployment, or using Kubernetes, are all valid options to deploy on AWS. Please refer to the corresponding chapters for further information.

Important: In order to deploy on AWS, general guidelines, like using a fast, direct-attached, SSD disk for the data directory of the ArangoDB processes apply.
