Ready to get started?
Begin by requesting an invitation code to participate in the StackBuilder Beta program by sending an email to email@example.com. In your message briefly describe your project need and ensure that you use a corporate email address. Once you have received the code, navigate to https://stackbuilder.stackarmor.com and enter the code in the pop-up to enable access to the application. Before you begin, do review how the StackBuilder service helps you quickly begin your project.
Step 1 – Select your workload
Select and click an icon that best matches your cloud hosting need. Most common workloads hosted in a cloud environment include websites, dev & test enclaves, data analytics/business intelligence or ecommerce systems. Click the next icon/arrow once you have selected a workload profile.
Step 2 – Describe your workload
Specify the size of your workload by selecting a value of Small, Medium or Large. The text below the drop-down explains the size of the workload in simple terms. Select the industry to help indicate and identify any specific regulatory or compliance driven architectural needs. And finally select whether you would like to manage the environment or have someone else manage it for you. Click the next icon/arrow when done.
Step 3 – Select your software stack
Select the software stack that you would like to install for your cloud project. StackBuilder currently supports WordPress and SharePoint 2013 for websites, Ruby on Rails and LAMP for Dev & Test, Tableau for Data Analytics and Magento for ECommerce. Click the next icon/arrow when done.
Step 4 – Review cost estimate
Select utilization percentage for the workload. The value selection drives the hosting costs given the consumption based pricing model. The StackBuilder capacity calculation engine automatically estimates the instance types, number of instances and the types of servers required to host your workload. Click the next icon/arrow when done.
Step 5 – Submit request
Fill out the submission form to begin the environment installation process. Depending on the nature of and size of the environment, the process may take anywhere from 15 mins to a couple of hours. During the Beta phase of the StackBuilder service no costs will be charged. However, it is important to enter accurate email and phone information as a stackArmor associate will call to verify the information given the costs involved with provisioning the workload. Click the submit request button when done. Note the confirmation number in your confirmation screen.
