August 2015  (last update: July 2017)

This Quick Start reference deployment guide discusses architectural considerations and configuration steps for deploying a Web Application Proxy and Active Directory Federation Services (AD FS) environment on the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Cloud. It also provides links for viewing and launching AWS CloudFormation templates that automate the deployment.

The guide is for IT infrastructure architects, administrators, and DevOps professionals who are planning to implement or extend their Web Application Proxy and AD FS workloads on the AWS Cloud.

The following links are for your convenience. Before you launch the Quick Start, please review the architecture, configuration, network security, and other considerations discussed in this guide.

  • If you have an AWS account and you’re already familiar with AWS services and AD FS, you can launch the Quick Start to build the architecture shown in Figure 1 in a new or existing virtual private cloud (VPC). The deployment takes approximately 1.5 hours. If you’re new to AWS or AD FS, please review the implementation details and follow the step-by-step instructions provided later in this guide.

     

         

     

  • If you want to take a look under the covers, you can view the AWS CloudFormation templates that automate the deployment.
