Chapter 1. Introduction

Tungsten AMI refers to a number of pre-configured AMI's (Amazon Machine Images) available to subscribe to via your own Amazon AWS Account. A number of AMI's exist for each valid topology/use case, and are grouped into two categories.

  • Tungsten AMI for Tungsten Clustering consists of a pre-configured AMI containing all the necessary pre-requisites to launch Tungsten Clustering

  • Tungsten AMI for Tungsten Replicator consists of various pre-configured AMI's containing all the necessary pre-requisites to launch a full end-to-end replication pipeline using Tungsten Replicator

1.1. Overview of Tungsten AMI for Tungsten Clustering

Tungsten AMI for Tungsten Clustering can be used to launch a fully functional cluster in your choice of AWS Region(s), along with a fully functional Tungsten Dashboard.

Once an AMI has been subscribed to, it can be launched in one of two ways:

  1. Manually, via the AWS Dashboard.

  2. Via pre-configured Cloud Formation Templates.

For an explanation of each launch method, follow the documentation listed in Chapter 2, Getting Started with Tungsten AMI for Tungsten Clustering
