Add an AWS RDS Instance


Welcome to the Morpheus Minute. Today we’re going to create an AWS MySQL Relational Database Service or RDS instance. Morpheus can provision applications on all public and private clouds. We’ve added the ability to integrate with Amazon’s RDS feature-set. In this Morpheus minute, we create a MySQL RDS. Before we get started, you’ll need to be connected to your AWS cloud using credentials that have the ability to access the RDS service and create RDS instances. Adding a MySQL RDS instance is very similar to creating any other MySQL instance. Click Provisioning, then instances. Click Add Instance. Select MySQL. Select a group with AWS in it. Provide a name and optionally select an environment tag, then click next. Choose RDS VM Master, then choose a storage plan. Provide a root password, then an admin username and password. Choose your DB Engine version, select the public IP check box if you need a public IP on your DB server. Enter a size for the data disk, then pick your security group. Then click Next. Then Click Complete. Now I can check my AWS RDS console and see it provision. That’s it! Thanks for watching this Morpheus Minute.
