This document describes the pre-requisites, specifications, and steps required to deploy a Cognito Sensor in an AWS account to monitor cloud Infrastructure-as-a-Service workloads.  These Sensors can be paired to Brains of any type.

Cognito AWS Sensors can be deployed in configurations that support 1 to 10 Gbps of network throughput per Sensor.
