Self Hosted

Only complete this section if you would like to run this workshop in your own account.

This workshop can be run inside your own AWS accounts. To enable you to follow the labs, we need to set up and configure a number of AWS services. We have made provisioning these services as simple as possible

By executing these templates, you are taking responsibility for the lifecycle and costs associated with provisioning them. Please follow the tear-down instructions to remove all resources from your AWS account once you have finished the workshop to avoid incurring unexpected costs.

We will leverage AWS CloudFormation which allows us to codify our infrastructure. Select your preferred region to which you will deploy the template. Just click the Create Stack button to launch the template.
