Build a new AWS environment for use during this tutorial. See environment diagram below. It will take approximately 40 minutes for the tutorial environment to be created.
Using the instructions below, create the tutorial environment usingAWS CloudFormation. It will take approximately 40 minutes for the CloudFormation stack to be fully deployed.
Read through all steps below and watch the quick video before clicking the Deploy to AWS button.
Amazon FSx is currently available in 11 regions.
File system creation is currently not supported in the following Availability Zones:

|N. Virginia (us-east-1)||use1-az3||Open the us-east-1 VPC console for AZ mapping.|
|Oregon (us-west-2)||usw2-az4||Open the us-west-2 VPC console for AZ mapping.|
|Sydney (ap-southeast-2)||apse2-az3||Open the ap-southeast-2 VPC console for AZ mapping.|
|Tokyo (ap-northeast-1)||apne1-az3||Open the ap-northeast-1 VPC console for AZ mapping.|
|Frankfurt (eu-central-1)||euc1-az1||Open the eu-central-1 VPC console for AZ mapping.|
When selecting availability zones in the CloudFormation create stack wizard, take care not to select an availability zone mapped to one of the Availability Zone IDs listed above.
