The PI System on Amazon Web Services

Version 2

    The typical PI System consists of numerous components,
    with PI Server components installed on several server machines. While
    historically the PI system was installed on physical servers, installation on
    non-physical servers is becoming increasingly common.


    Two main options are available for non-physical implementation:

    • implementing virtual servers on a physical host
      that the business controls
    • implementing servers on a cloud host controlled
      by a third party


    This white paper addresses best practices for implementation
    of the PI System on the Amazon Web Services cloud service.


    Areas of focus include, but are not limited to,
    PI server configuration, network reliability and level of service, security
    practices, IP addressing, resource allocation, and disaster recovery.
