From here you’ll need to configure Spinnaker. There are a few steps you’ll need to complete:

  1. Set up Spinnaker
  2. We suggest that you use Elasticache from AWS or if you would like you can [set up Redis] (https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-install-and-configure-redis-on-ubuntu-16-04) on your own.
  3. [Use Redis as the backend] for Front50 (http://www.spinnaker.io/docs/front50-cassandra-to-s3)
