S3 Storage Setup

Create the following new S3 buckets. These buckets should be created in the same region in which you will run the EC2 instances for Imhotep.

  1. a build bucket to store your uploaded data

  2. a data bucket to store your Imhotep datasets

  3. a cache bucket to store query cache data (configure this bucket to expire objects after 1 day, by adding a Lifecycle rule on the Management tab)

Create a user (in IAM > Users) with programmatic access and full access to your new S3 buckets. Save the access key ID and secret for later use.

Next Step: Set up SSH access and security groups
