Deploying the FortiADC-VM
There are two ways to deploy FortiADC-VM on Amazon Web Services’ Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2):
- Bring Your Own License (BYOL) — Requires a FortiADC-VM.
- On-demand — Provides a fully-licensed instance of FortiADC-VM, all FortiGuard services, and technical support on an hourly basis.
Both methods require an existing Amazon EC2 account and Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (Amazon VPC). You can deploy the FortiADC-VM for AWS using AWS Marketplace or from your own AMIs directly.
Starting from version 5.2.4, we suggest configuring the FortiADC from Amazon Marketplace.
