Sample templates

Amazon CloudFormation sample templates demonstrate how you can create templates for various uses. For example, one sample template describes a load-balancing, auto scaling WordPress blog in an Amazon VPC. We recommend that you use these sample templates as a starting point for creating your own templates and not to launch production-level environments.


The Amazon Quick Starts use Amazon CloudFormation templates to automate software deployments, such as a Chef Server or MongoDB, on Amazon. You can use these templates to learn how to deploy your own solution on Amazon. For more information, see Amazon quick start reference deployments.

You can directly launch any of the sample templates to create an Amazon CloudFormation stack. Select a region below to deploy your resources.
