I haven’t posted much here lately because I’ve been working on deploying GemFire and Greenplum in the AWS Marketplace. It has been interesting work so I thought I would make a post about it here.
Amazon Web Services (AWS)
Amazon has the most popular cloud in the US with many products available which now includes Pivotal Greenplum and Pivotal GemFire. Both products are available as Bring Your Own License (BYOL) or Billed Hourly. BYOL simply means you already own a license and you wish to apply this to a deployment in AWS.
If you are not familiar with AWS, there are many ways to configure resources which can be overwhelming to learn and optimize. I have done extensive testing in these product offerings to ensure stability, security, repeatability, and performance. With just a few clicks, you can have an on-demand cluster built that rivals a full rack of on-premise hardware.
