Prerequisites

You'll need a few things before you can install and run Jaspersoft Business Intelligence on Amazon Web Services:

An Amazon Web Services (AWS) account.

If you already have an account, log in to AWS.

To create an AWS account, go to the Amazon Web Services sign up page, click the Sign Up button, and follow the instructions.

If you have a personal Amazon.com account stored in your browser, AWS uses that account by default. You need to sign out of Amazon or, preferably, use a different browser to set up an AWS account separate from your personal account.

A valid Amazon key pair in your account. If you don't have a valid key pair, follow the instructions on the AWS documentation site: http://docs.aws.amazon.com/gettingstarted/latest/wah/getting-started-create-key-pair.html
