Launch an Ubuntu machine on AWS
Select Ubuntu 20.04
Select the instance type. You should choose at least t2.large as we need at least 8GB of RAM.
Make sure you select the VPC that also includes the data sources you will want to connect to.
Make sure there is at least 64 GB of storage. This can fluctuate depending on the number of resources a company has
Optionally add some Tags, e.g. app = secoda. In general, you can skip this unless you have a lot of instances.
Set the security groups.
We need to open ports 80 (http) and 443 (https) so that you can connect to the server from a browser, as well as port 22 (ssh) so that we can ssh into the instance to configure it and run Secoda. If you're running behind a VPN you can specify the VPN's IP address in the Source column.
Please have all outbound traffic set for the security group. This allows us to track how users are using the application for support and product improvement purposes. If you are not able to allow all outbound traffic please let us know.
