Deploy an Amazon EC2 with Default Settings

This topic lists the steps to deploy an Amazon EC2 host using the default specifications.

You can deploy and activate an Amazon S3 File Gateway on an Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) instance. The Amazon Storage Gateway Amazon Machine Image (AMI) is available as a community AMI.

Note

Storage Gateway community AMIs are published and fully supported by Amazon. You can see that the publisher is Amazon, a verified provider.

  1. To set up the Amazon EC2 instance, choose Amazon EC2 as the Host platform in the Platform options section of the workflow. For instructions on configuring the Amazon EC2 instance, see Deploying an Amazon EC2 instance to host your Amazon S3 File Gateway.

  2. Select Launch instance to open the Amazon Storage Gateway AMI template in the Amazon EC2 console and customize additional settings such as Instance types, Network settings and Configure storage.

  3. Optionally, you can select Use default settings in the Storage Gateway console to deploy an Amazon EC2 instance with the default configuration.

    The Amazon EC2 instance that Use default settings creates has the following default specifications:

    • Instance typem5.xlarge

    • Network Settings

      • For VPC, select the VPC that you want your EC2 instance to run in.

      • For Subnet, specify the subnet that your EC2 instance should be launched in.

        Note

        Only subnets that have public-IP enabled are listed.

      • Auto-assign Public IPEnabled

      • An EC2 security group is created and associated with the EC2 Instance. The security group has the following inbound port rules:

        Note

        You will need Port 80 during gateway activation and the port is closed immediately thereafter. Your EC2 instance can only be accessed over the other ports from the selected VPC.

        You can edit security groups anytime by navigating to the EC2 instance details page, selecting Security, and navigating to Security group details by choosing the security group ID.
