No one could argue that deploying the Camunda BPM platform to a web server is unmatched in its adrenaline-inducing excitement, but we should spare a thought for those people whose aversion to scripts and consoles has meant that they have never had the opportunity to enjoy Camunda BPM deployments to their fullest. Until now...
In this post I'm going to explain in detail how you can deploy Camunda BPM to a server using docker and Amazon Web Services (AWS) and interestingly enough - it doesn't require so much as a glance at a console cursor.
To achieve this we're going to be using two Amazon services:
- RDS - to setup the process engine's database
- EC2 Container Service - as a container for the deployment.
The docker image will be used in conjunction with the EC2 container service to make the deployment even easier.
