SOLVED

AEM and Google Cloud Platform

Hi there, I hope everyone is safe! I've been asking myself this question for some days now. Can I set up an instance on Google Cloud Platform and run AEM, right? Does someone implement this before? What challenges did you face? Can I do it for testing purposes under my developer license?

Hi @luisantonio,

 

Yes, you can use GCP and host the AEM. I personally did it in one of my projects. GCP is nothing but a cloud platform similar to AWS [which has its own differences]. So to host your AEM, all you need to do is create instances in GCP [with your required OS and hardaware] and start using it.

Hope this helps!

 

Thanks,

Hi @Kiran_Vedantam, thank you for your answer. My client has not bought the license yet, can I deploy an instance of AEM using GCP to showcase AEM as CMS? I've been learning AEM locally using a single author instance. How do you manage environments? like production and development, are they in someway connect to the same JCR?

Hi luisantonio, yes, you can create an instance in GCP, upload the jar file and start the instance. Here you can create multiple different instances for dev, qa and prod with different IP's and sizes as per your requirement.
