CVRG Waveform EC2 cloud
From CVRG Wiki
Implement Waveform in the Amazon EC2 cloud
The Amazon EC2 version of Waveform provides an easy way to get up and running with the software without having to install it on your own hardware. With the consent of your institution and making sure that you are following all applicable policies and laws, you can run a HIPAA-compliant instance of Waveform on Amazon's infrastructure. While the Waveform software is free as always when running on EC2, Amazon does charge for use of their infrastructure. See the Amazon EC2's homepage for pricing and more information.
Note that we currently support version 3.0 of Waveform on EC2.
Steps to run Waveform on EC2
Create an Amazon EC2 account
Register for an Amazon EC2 account, if you do not have one already.
Sign into your Amazon EC2 account
On the Amazon EC2 homepage, select My Account/Console at the top of the page. Then, select AWS Management Console.
Start creating a new Amazon EC2 AMI instance
Click on EC2 under Compute & Networking.
Then, click on Launch Instance.
Select Quick Launch Wizard
Give your instance of Waveform a name by typing a name of your choice next to Name Your Instance. Select Create New under Choose a Key Pair and type in a name, e.g., mykey. If you are already a user of Amazon EC2, you may have a key pair defined already. Use your existing key pair by clicking Select Existing and selecting the key pair you want to use. Finally, underneath the key pair selection, select More Amazon Machine Images and click Continue.
Select the Waveform Image
Confirm settings and Launch
The next page confirms your selected machine image and its default settings. You can leave all of the defaults, and click Launch (Your account will be charged when you click this link!).
If you are successful, you will see the following screen indicating that Waveform is launching:
Click the Close button in the lower right-hand corner of the screen. To access the AMI, wait a minute or so. Then, click Refresh under My Resources. You should see 1 Running Instance on the screen. Click on 1 Running Instance.
You should see the Waveform image in your My Instances list. Right-click on it, and select Connect to connect to it.
The easiest way to login for the first time is to use Amazon's Java SSH Client. To do this, type in the path to the above certificate file in the Private key path field seen in the screenshot below. Then, click Launch SSH Client. Alternatively, click on Connect with a standalone SSH Client and follow the instructions.
Now that you have your Waveform instance running, follow the instructions on the <a href="install.html Installation page] to configure it.
To terminate your instance of CVRG and thus stop incurring charges, right-click on the Waveform image in the My Instances list and select Terminate.
