With Teramind on AWS you get:

Flexible and Competitive Pricing

Teramind's recommended configuration for a standard deployment (m4.xlarge instance, up to 100 users) costs only $0.2 per/hr.

Create Your Own Optimized Environment

Deployment Instructions for Teramind on AWS
Steps Instructions

Step 1

Launching an Instance

Go to Teramind portal on AWS Marketplace and launch a Teramind instance.

Step 2

Connecting to the Instance

After deploying your instance, you should connect to it using user 'admin' and the selected key-pair:

$ ssh -i "path/to/your/key-pair.pem" admin@your-Instance-ip-or-dns-name

Step 3

Installing Teramind

After the above step, you will be greeted by the Teramind setup wizard. Follow the on-screen instruction to continue.

Step 4

Database Considerations

Teramind is delivered as a self-contained solution without any external dependencies. However, you may want to use Amazon RDS as the database, and Amazon S3 as screen/audio recording storage.

Using RDS and S3 will improve the scalability of your platform and is recommended for deployments of over 100 concurrent monitored users.

Step 5

Using Amazon RDS

To use Amazon RDS as a database, you'll need to create a PostrgreSQL isntance (version 10 or greater). The Teramind setup wizard will ask for your RDS DB credentials (host, username, password), and will set up the database for you.

Step 6

Using Amazon S3

To use S3 as the audio / video file storage (instead of plain files stored on EBS volume), you'll need to assign proper IAM roles to your Teramind instance after creation. For S3 integration, Teramind requires 3 buckets for storing screen / audio recorded data, captured attachments / printer documents, and Teramind metadata such as user images. You can create these buckets on your own before starting the Teramind setup wizard, or let the wizard create the buckets for you (assuming IAM roles have been properly assigned).

Step 7

Configuring and Deploying the Agents

After deploying the server, open your Teramind deployment in a browser and proceed to configure your settings and deploy your agents.
