24.2.1. Overview of Deploying JBoss EAP 6 on Amazon EC2
JBoss EAP 6 can be deployed using the Amazon EC2 AMI. The AMI contains everything that is required for deployment of clustered and non-clustered instances.
Deploying a non-clustered instance is the easiest scenario. It requires only that you make a few configuration changes to specify your application deployment when creating the instance.
Deploying clustered instances requires more configuration. It is recommended you create a Virtual Private Cloud to contain your cluster. Use of a JBoss EAP instance to act as a mod_cluster proxy is optional but if you take this option, an S3 bucket for the S3_PING JGroups discovery protocol is also required.
Each of these steps is detailed below but it is assumed that you have some experience with JBoss EAP 6, Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 and Amazon EC2.
