AWS Deployment

This guide was created based on the instructions provided by Nick Baronian in the AWS Import thread of the [dradis-pro] mailing list.

The steps to import Dradis into an EC2 instance are as follows:

  1. Prepare a plain-text disk with the contents of the Dradis appliance (by default Dradis ships with full-disk encryption).
  2. Import the plain-text disk into EC2.
  3. Configure and launch EC2.

This guides provides step-by-step instructions on how to do this.

The officially supported platforms for running Dradis Professional are VirtualBox and VMware as described in the FAQ. If you deploy your Dradis Pro appliance on AWS (or any other unsupported platform), we may not be able to help you.
