Kong 64-bit Amazon Machine Image (AMI) is available on the AWS Marketplace, with 1-Click Launch, or manually With EC2 Console, APIs or CLI:
The Kong AWS Marketplace AMI image is designed for simplicity and fast deployment, this means it comes bundled with Cassandra on the same image.
Note: For optimal performance, we recommend deploying a Cassandra cluster separately from the Kong Cluster.
Please refer to the AWS Cloud Formation Template for custom deployment of Cassandra and Kong Clusters on AWS.
Each EC2 Node is self-contained, running both Kong & Cassandra. In order to add more nodes and start a cluster, you'll have have to turn on Clustering in Cassandra, and modify each node's
kong.ymlwith the updated Cassandra information.
