NOTE: Modifying the type or size of the EBS volumes in the QF2 AMI will render the software not functional. Please use the block device layout provided in the original AMI.
Running QF2 in AWS as a single node cluster provides 5TB of raw storage so that you can leverage the full power of the Qumulo filesystem. As you begin to use QF2 in AWS, please consider the following:
Click here to sign into your AWS account and begin creating the stack with the template. Current supported regions include us-west-2, us-east-1 and eu-central-1. Please modify the above URL accordingly if deploying in a region other than us-west-2.
Fill in the following fields for the CloudFormation template:
Stack name: used to identify the deployed stack
Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) instance type: Select the desired EC2 instance type
VPC ID: Select the desired VPC in which QF2 will be deployed
Subnet ID in the VPC: Select the desired subnet in the VPC with which QF2 will be deployed
QF2 administrator password: the temporary administrator password for accessing the QF2 Administrative Console after launch
Note this should be changed via the Administrative Console
Click the Create button to create the stack
Monitor the creation progress under Events on the Stack Details page
Wait for the creation status to display CREATE_COMPLETE for the stack
Once complete, your QF2 free trial instance is ready for access via REST, NFS and SMB. Use the link provided in the Outputs section of the CloudFormation Stack Details view to access the QF2 Administrative Console and login with your temporary administrator password. Note that the same IP address can be used for NFS or SMB client mount points and REST.
