AWS Setup for Hedvig Storage Clusters

The AWS (Amazon Web Services) setup for Hedvig Storage Clusters has very specific requirements for hardware and software. You must launch AWS instances before deploying a Hedvig Storage Cluster with those instances.


  • If you already have an existing provisioning framework for AWS, use that framework to launch instances, instead of the method described in the following sections.

  • Hedvig typically requires m4.10xlarge instances. The number and quantity of drives depend on cluster size and performance requirements.
