The following diagram shows the architecture diagram of this solution. You can use the deployment guide and the AWS CloudFormation template for automated deployment.
Keycloak on AWS
In this solution, the Keycloak container is deployed on AWS Fargate. With AWS Fargate, customers do not need to manually configure and manage container instances. To ensure high availability, this solution defines two tasks in Amazon ECS. When one task fails, the other task can still provide services.
This solution leverages Amazon RDS as the system database to store Keycloak configuration and user information. To ensure high availability and data security, this solution uses Amazon RDS multi-zone deployment which creates a primary DB Instance and synchronously replicates the data to a standby instance in a different Availability Zone (AZ). When an infrastructure failure occurs, Amazon RDS automatically initiates a failover to the up-to-date standby and customers can restore the database immediately after the failover is over.
