1Introduction

Amazon Web Services (AWS) GovCloud is a cloud service, from Amazon, aimed specifically at the United States government. It is designed to allow US government agencies and customers to move sensitive workloads into the cloud by addressing specific regulatory and compliance requirements - for example, the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) which governs how defense-related data is managed and stored. Specifically, GovCloud segregates the data both logically and physically to ensure that it is only accessible by designated individuals within the United States.

1.1Document Purpose

This document is intended to brief the reader on the LoadMaster for AWS GovCloud product and assist the reader to set up a basic LoadMaster for AWS GovCloud instance.

1.2Intended Audience

This document is intended to be read by anyone who is interested in deploying a LoadMaster for AWS GovCloud product.

1.3Prerequisites

There are some perquisites to be aware of before following the steps in this document:

  • Users should be familiar with the operation of AWS. For further information on AWS, please refer to the LoadMaster for AWS, Feature Description.
  • If not already done, create a KEMP ID at the registration page:

https://kemptechnologies.com/kemp-id-registration/

  • Users should have access and be logged-in to the AWS GovCloud Management Console.

2Deploying a KEMP LoadMaster in the Amazon GovCloud

Since Amazon’s GovCloud, unlike AWS, does not offer a Marketplace, KEMP supports deployment of the Virtual LoadMaster for AWS in GovCloud as follows:

2.1Evaluate a free edition of the LoadMaster

For initial evaluation, navigate to Amazon Machine Images (AMIs) in the AWS GovCloud management console and search public images for LoadMaster.

Figure 2‑1: AMIs - Free LoadMaster

This AMI will launch as the free edition of the KEMP LoadMaster for GovCloud which has a limited capacity of 20Mbps throughput and 50 SSL Transactions Per Second (TPS).

For evaluation or purchase of a higher capacity Virtual LoadMaster please contact your KEMP representative.

Initial booting and any subsequent licensing activity of the LoadMaster AMI requires the instance to be able to connect to the KEMP licensing server at https://alsi.kemptechnologies.com using port 443.

Figure 2‑2: Update License

After launch - to complete registration of the instance - please navigate to System Configuration > System Administration > Update License and enter the KEMP ID you created.

2.2Deploy a Production Virtual LoadMaster

For production use, purchase an appropriate Virtual LoadMaster product license via the KEMP Sales account team. Once the production license purchase is processed, apply it to the instance. Information on licensing can be found in the Licensing, Feature Description document.

A KEMP ID and the AWS Machine ID for the LoadMaster instance are required to complete the process.
