To connect to Amazon Web Services (AWS), you must provide AWS account information in a functional ID. You must also register Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) images with the cloud discovery service.

The following diagram shows a typical topology for this scenario. The blueprint design server and engine connect to Amazon Web Services. For authentication information, the blueprint design server connects to the Keystone identity service and optionally to an LDAP server.
