Deploy your selfhosted serverless XWiki now! There are many ways to get your own, truly private and selfhosted, wiki in the exciting cloud computing times. SaaS solutions exists and many OpenSource Software can be hosted on virtual machines or even hardware. But what is the best way to deploy such Wiki on your AWS Account?

This time my boss wanted a BI app.
