Figure 1: AWS Edit in the Cloud architecture on AWS

The AWS CloudFormation template deploys the following infrastructure:

  1. An Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) instance for Windows Server 2019 with Teradici Cloud Access Software and NVIDIA T4 GPU drivers for running your Non-Linear Editor (NLE) software of choice. Users will remote into the instance using Teradici’s PC-over-IP (PCoIP) client.

  2. AWS Directory Service for user authentication.

  3. Amazon FSx for Windows File Server to access digital assets via the Amazon EC2 instance through your editor of choice. FSx for Windows File Server will auto-mount the network share upon startup of the Windows Amazon EC2 instance. FSx for Windows File Server will be used for storing your media assets to be used by your non-linear editor (NLE).

Note

This solution does not deploy an Amazon S3 bucket with associated IAM roles for access. However, it allows you to configure your own S3 bucket for media file storage.
