In order to launch Cloudbreak from the CloudFormation template you must:

  • Have an existing an AWS account.

    If you don’t have an account, you can create one at https://aws.amazon.com/.

  • Import an existing SSH key pair or generate a new SSH key pair in the AWS region which you are planning to use for launching Cloudbreak and clusters. If you don’t have a key pair, you can create or import it by using the following steps:

    1. Navigate to the Amazon EC2 console at https://console.aws.amazon.com/ec2/.
    2. Check the region listed in the top right corner to make sure that you are in the correct region.
    3. In the left pane, find NETWORK AND SECURITY and click Key Pairs.
    4. Do one of the following:
      • Click Create Key Pair to create a new key pair. Your private key file will be automatically downloaded onto your computer. Make sure to save it in a secure location. You will need it to SSH to the cluster nodes. You may want to change access settings for the file using chmod 400 my-key-pair.pem.
      • Click Import Key Pair to upload an existing public key and then select it and click Import. Make sure that you have access to its corresponding private key.
  • In order to access Cloudbreak web UI, you should use one of the following supported browsers: Chrome, Firefox, or Safari.
