The Denodo Platform for BYOL offers the flexibility of instantiating a Denodo deployment under your AWS account. Therefore it is expected that you already have an AWS account that you can use to logon to the AWS Marketplace.
You are responsible for operating your own AWS account. You can create and launch your Denodo Platform for AWS BYOL instance using that AWS Account.
The high level list of steps needed to provision and configuring your Denodo Platform BYOL on Azure is the following:
This is a BYOL offering and requires you to work with Denodo directly to obtain licenses.
If you currently do not hold a license agreement for Denodo Platform, please contact Denodo directly to pursue a license to use the software.
Log on to the AWS Marketplace, search for the Denodo Platform 8.0 (BYOL) listing, and launch the instance through the EC2 Console.
Once you have a Denodo Platform license file, log in as the ec2-user in the Denodo Platform for AWS BYOL instance through SSH Connection.
Copy the Denodo Platform license file to the AWS instance, rename it as denodo.lic, and save it in the /opt/denodo/denodo-solution-manager-8.0/conf directory.
