AWS EC2 Deployment Guidelines

AWS EC2 Deployment
AWS EC2 deployments have specific technical and sizing requirements, and a set of Cortex XSOAR best practices.
After you configure and verify your AWS EC2 deployment, install the Cortex XSOAR Server.
Supported AWS EC2 Instance Types
Cortex XSOAR server installation is supported on the following Amazon EC2 instance types.
Instance Type
Instance Name

m5.12xlarge
m5.24xlarge
M4
m4.4xlarge
m4.10xlarge
m4.16xlarge

c5.4xlarge
c5.9xlarge
c5.18xlarge
C4
c4.4xlarge
c4.8xlarge
R4
r4.4xlarge
r4.8xlarge
r4.16xlarge
T2
Only use this instance type for evaluation and testing.
Supported EC2 Storage
We recommend that you use EBS-optimized2 instances (included in C4,M4 instance family types).
Minimum disk space for production environment is 500 GB.
Network and Security
Inbound connections: Cortex XSOAR server requires that you open HTTPS port 443 for inbound connections.
Outbound connections: outbound ports depending on your integrations and specific requirements. By default, AWS opens all traffic.
Supported OS
Cortex XSOAR supports server installation on these Linux distributions.
  • CentOS v7.2 and later (recommended)
  • Ubuntu Server v14.04 LTS and later (recommended)
  • RHEL v7.2 and later (Docker CE is not supported. You need Docker EE to run specific Docker-dependent integrations and automations. For more information, contact the Demisto support team).
AWS Backup
You can use Amazon EBS snapshots3 to back up your AWS EC2 instances. Use snapshots for incremental backups, point-in-time restoration, and to view history data.
