Deploy Enterprise Data Preparation on the AWS Cloud Marketplace (10.5)

Account and security prerequisites

Account and security prerequisites

Complete the prerequisites in this section to verify that you obtained the required AWS account and private keys.

AWS Account and Region

If you do not already have an AWS account, create an account at aws.amazon.com.
Use the region selector in the navigation bar to choose the AWS region where you want to deploy Enterprise Data Preparation on AWS.
The region you choose determines the availability of certain sizes of EC2 instances.
If necessary, request a service limit increase for the EC2 instance type you decided to use for the Informatica domain. You might need to do this if you already have an existing deployment that uses this instance type, and you think you might exceed the default limit with this reference deployment.

Private Keys

Create a key pair in your preferred region.
When you log in to an EC2 instance, you use a password file for authentication. The file is called a private key file and has a file name extension of .pem.
If you do not have an existing .pem key to use, follow the instructions in the AWS documentation to create a key pair.
Your administrator might ask you to use an existing key pair.
When you create a key pair, you save the .pem file to your desktop system. Simultaneously, AWS saves the key pair to your account. Make a note of the key pair that you want to use for the deployment, so that you can provide the key pair name during network configuration.
