Shine launches Quick Start for Adobe Experience Manager (AEM) OpenCloud on Amazon Web Services (AWS)

Oct 9, 2020

Major banks deploy AEM on AWS in half the time with open-source libraries Shine Solutions Group Pty Ltd , an enterprise cloud and digital platform solutions developer, announced the launch of a new AWS Quick Start for AEM OpenCloud . Already implemented by two of Australia’s four largest retail banks, ANZ and NAB, the AEM OpenCloud Quick Start allows organizations to deploy and manage mission-critical AEM websites quickly and easily, with increased agility, scalability, and cost-efficiency. According to Shine CTO  Luke Alexander , the Quick Start will allow organizations to massively accelerate AEM cloud deployment. “Working with AWS, we’ve created a Quick Start using the AWS Well-Architected Framework and AEM OpenCloud, that will cut down the engineering time for deploying AEM on AWS by at least half, while significantly improving stability and reliability — and making blue/green production upgrades dramatically easier,” said Alexander. Related Posts Oct 9, 2020 Running AEM in the cloud has traditionally been a significant effort to deploy. Baking in seven years of experience implementing AEM, Shine open-sourced AEM OpenCloud and with AWS developed this new Quick Start. Enterprises using it can achieve 75-minute deployments of AEM OpenCloud on AWS through common architectural patterns and automation. It combines multiple open-source libraries providing all the necessary building blocks for running AEM on AWS. The AEM OpenCloud Quick Start includes a vetted, production-ready architecture reference blueprint, AWS CloudFormation templates that automate deployment, and a guide to the architecture with step-by-step deployment instructions. According to NAB’s Acting Head of Technology, Digital Content & Customer Communications Brendan Colson , Shine’s technical expertise has been key to their success. “Shine’s AWS and AEM expertise has been key for running non-cloud-native AEM successfully in AWS. Shine’s approach to partnering, combined with technical skills in delivery and training to uplift our workforce, has been key to our success – building a solution that we now support ourselves,” said Colson.
