  • 1.  Difference between deploying from Cloud Formation and AMI

    Posted 20 days ago
    Hello,

    Would like to ask what is the difference between deploying a DAM or WAF from Cloud Formation and AMI through AWS Marketplace?

    What would be the use case for the deployment of DAM or WAF using this 2 method?

    Regards

    The CFT allows you to deploy multiple systems and adds the configuration and I think it applies the license too.  The CFT deploys the AMI as part of its deployment process.

    The CFT also adds security policies to allow systems to communicate with each other.  

    If you deploy the AMI manually, you will have a lot of additional steps to follow in order to get a functioning installation.
