FoundationDB

CloudFormation support since BETA 1?


(Pieter Joost Van De Sande) #1

The release notes of BETA 1 do list “CloudFormation” support, but I can’t find any details… what does this mean?

There did formerly exist an AWS CloudFormation template to setup a FoundationDB cluster, but this had not been maintained (since sometime around 3.0 if I had to guess) and is no longer available. Let us know, though, if you are interested in doing the work to bring it up to date, and we may be able to work with you on that.

Thanks for the detailed response. I would definitely be interested to work on this. Let me know what the next steps are so we can move this forward.

We’ll dig up the old CloudFormation template and see how it works against a newer version of FoundationDB and if there’s any caveats we want to give along with it. Unfortunately it may take a bit of time to get it together, with the holidays coming up.

Great, let me know your findings.
Enjoy the holidays!
