Nowadays applications are deployed more and more to a cloud. Since Alfresco first choice for the cloud provider is AWS, this project will focus on running "local" AWS environment usingLocalStack.
Currently, LocalStack allows mocked AWS S3 storage, the project will use especially this AWS service. AWS RDS (managed service for database) is currently available in LocalStackPro, so it will not be used.
Using LocalStack all developers can test a source code it doesn't require AWS account. Another advantage is possible integration testing with mocked AWS service(s).
