This Partner Solution was created by Starrocks in collaboration with Amazon Web Services (AWS). Partner Solutions are automated reference deployments that help people deploy popular technologies on AWS according to AWS best practices. If you’re unfamiliar with AWS Partner Solutions, refer to the AWS Partner Solution General Information Guide.
This Quick Start deploys Starrocks, a high-performance analytical data warehouse that enables real-time, multidimensional, and highly concurrent data analysis. This Quick Start helps AWS users deploy a Starrocks cluster on a new or existing VPC with only a few steps.
If you are unfamiliar with AWS Quick Starts, refer to the AWS Quick Start General Information Guide.
Costs and licenses
There is no cost to use this Quick Start, but you will be billed for any AWS services or resources that this Quick Start deploys. For more information, refer to the AWS Quick Start General Information Guide.
Deploying this Quick Start with default parameters builds the following Starrocks[product name] environment in the AWS Cloud.
As shown in Figure 1, this Quick Start sets up the following:
A highly available architecture that spans multiple Availability Zones.
A VPC peering connection to connect a customer’s VPC containing their client application to the Quick Start VPC.
A virtual private cloud (VPC) configured with public and private subnets, according to AWS best practices, to provide you with your own virtual network on AWS.*
In the public subnets:
Managed network address translation (NAT) gateways to allow outbound internet access for resources in the private subnets.*
A Linux bastion host in an Auto Scaling group to allow inbound Secure Shell (SSH) access to Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) instances in public and private subnets.
In the private subnets, two services of StarRocks nodes deployed to Amazon EC2 instances.
A frontend service for metadata management, client connections, and query scheduling. It contains follower nodes to perform read operations and leader nodes to modify metadata.
A backend service containing backend nodes for data storage and SQL computing.
* The template that deploys this Quick Start into an existing VPC skips the components marked by asterisks and prompts you for your existing VPC configuration.
This Quick Start provides the following deployment options:
Deploy Starrocks into a new VPC. This option builds a new AWS environment that consists of the VPC, subnets, NAT gateways, security groups, bastion hosts, and other infrastructure components. It then deploys Starrocks into this new VPC.
Deploy Starrocks into an existing VPC. This option provisions Starrocks in your existing AWS infrastructure.
This Quick Start provides separate templates for these options. It also lets you configure Classless Inter-Domain Routing (CIDR) blocks, instance types, and Starrocks settings.
Sign in to your AWS account, and launch this Partner Solution, as described under Deployment options. The AWS CloudFormation console opens with a prepopulated template.
Choose the correct AWS Region, and then choose Next.
On the Create stack page, keep the default setting for the template URL, and then choose Next.
On the Specify stack details page, change the stack name if needed. Review the parameters for the template. Provide values for the parameters that require input. For all other parameters, review the default settings and customize them as necessary. When you finish reviewing and customizing the parameters, choose Next.
Unless you’re customizing the Partner Solution templates or are instructed otherwise in this guide’s Predeployment section, don’t change the default settings for the following parameters:
QSS3KeyPrefix. Changing the values of these parameters will modify code references that point to the Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) bucket name and key prefix. For more information, refer to the AWS Partner Solutions Contributor’s Guide.
On the Review page, review and confirm the template settings. Under Capabilities, select all of the check boxes to acknowledge that the template creates AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM) resources that might require the ability to automatically expand macros.
Choose Create stack. The stack takes about 30 minutes to deploy.
Monitor the stack’s status, and when the status is CREATE_COMPLETE, the Starrocks deployment is ready.
To view the created resources, choose the Outputs tab.
After you deploy a Partner Solution, confirm that your resources and services are updated and configured—including any required patches—to meet your security and other needs. For more information, refer to the Shared Responsibility Model.
