About Amazon EC2 servers

You can leverage Amazon EC2 cloud servers to host the resources that your applications require. After you create a new server, you can view its statistics and performance to monitor your resource load.

Creating an Amazon EC2 server

Before you can create a new server, your cloud administrator must associate you as a user to an Amazon EC2 cloud connector. You must also have the Amazon Machine Image identification number assigned to you by Amazon.

You can leverage Amazon EC2 cloud servers to host the resources that your applications require. This eliminates the need for you to purchase and manage hardware and allows you to expand and retract virtual resources as needed.

  1. Log in to BIG-IQ Cloud with your tenant user name and password.
  2. Hover on the Servers header, and click the + icon when it appears. The panel expands to display fields for the new server details.
  3. In the AMI ID field, type the identification for the Amazon Machine Image.
  4. In the Key Pair Name field, type the name of an existing EC2 key pair. This step is optional. If you do not provide the name of an existing key pair, BIG-IQ Cloud will create one for you.
  5. Click the Save button.
You can now deploy applications to the server you created.
