TSA MP supported for AWS

The purpose of this RFE is to request support of Tivoli System Automation for Multiplatforms on AWS.

One of the IBM project teams at large customer needs an official support of Tivoli System Automation for Multiplatforms on AWS multi AZ environment to implement DB2 high availability with DB2 HADR on RHEL 7 on AWS. Since this customer only allow the platform AWS, and we have no choice but AWS, and the delivery project has already started.

We would like to take one of following 4 options.
Any of the following options are fine, but if at all possible, I would like to know which ones might support on AWS.
1. Cloud tiebreaker (S3)
2. Network tiebreaker
3. SCSIPR tiebreaker
4. No tirbreaker, but three-node cluster

In order to make this project success, we need AWS support by the end of Mar 2020, which is just before system cutover.

    I think TSA support is absolutely necessary to build a db2 HA system on Clund env.
