Weaveworks CloudFormation template is the easiest way to get started with Weave Cloud in ECS. CloudFormation templates provide developers and systems administrators a simple way to create a collection or a stack of related AWS resources, and it provisions and updates them in an orderly and predictable fashion.
Use these specially created Weaveworks CloudFormation template to create an ECS cluster with all of the resources you need, including Weave Net and Weave Cloud. One of the templates configures Kubernetes in an ECS cluster and the other sets up an ECS cluster only. Both templates give you the option of running a sample app and also whether you want to use Weave Net and Weave Scope.
Before launching either of these stacks:
- Set up an Amazon Account
- Create the Key Pairs. You will need to reference the name of the key pairs when you create the stack.
Note: Key pairs you create are tied to a particular region.
