Install DC/OS cluster for Amazon Web Services using templates on AWS CloudFormation

You can create a DC/OS cluster for Amazon Web Services (AWS) by using the DC/OS templates on AWS CloudFormation.

Note: These installation methods are not officially supported by Mesosphere, but are supported by the DC/OS community. Contact the mailing list or Slack channel for community support.

Warning: DC/OS CloudFormation templates are intended for reference only and are not recommended for production use due to the following limitations:
  • CloudFormation does not allow for coordinated zero-downtime in-place updates within Auto Scaling groups.
  • CloudFormation does not allow for automated zero-downtime replacement of Auto Scaling groups.
  • Replacing DC/OS agent nodes requires manual data migration of local storage volumes for stateful services.
  • Updates of DC/OS on AWS CloudFormation have not been automated, validated, or documented.
  • Modified CloudFormation templates are not supported by Mesosphere, Inc.

The recommended way to install production-ready DC/OS that can be upgraded in-place is to use the Installation method.
