Create a NFS instance on AWS by the Sysco team

clip_image002I was creating AWS EC2 instances to install Oracle Fusion Middleware products, and I found an issue: How to download Oracle's installers if I want to use installers on several instances? This could consume a lot of network bandwith and I want to make this process repeatable, so I don't want to wait 1 hour each installation only downloading files.

So, I found this solution: How to setup an Amazon AWS EC2 NFS Share. But to make it more reusable, I create a Vagrant & Chef configuration to replicate and share this method here: Git repository

What are the steps?

  1. You need to install Vagrant (vagrant-aws and vagrant-omnibus) and Chef SDK
  2. You have to create Chef Server account and upload the cookbooks
  3. You need to create AWS account to create instances remotly.
  4. You have to create a Vagrant configuration and customize it to create an AWS EC2 instance
  5. Test it.

Well, I've created a configuration on GitHub and I'll show you how to use it: Watch the Youtube video here.
