This is a short tutorial to install the BaasBox server on an Amazon EC2 instance.
We suppose to use a Mac (or a Linux) machine to launch local commands and to interact with the Amazon Web Service infrastructure.
The only prerequisite is that you have an Amazon Web Service account.
What are “Amazon Web Services”, also known as AWS are?
In short, they are a complete set of services that can be used to build and run your own IT infrastructure, from websites to data management to storage, and more.
In this tutorial we focus on one of such services: Elastic Computed Cloud or EC2.
Through this particular service provided by Amazon, we are able to create a new virtual machine on the Amazon infrastructure and to install and run BaasBox on it.
