Running c5 in an AWS cluster2 users found helpful
Creating a load balanced cluster using appservers and database servers in geographically diverse data centers is quite easy, and can be done using the graphical AWS Console. (point and shoot). There are just a few tips along the way that can help
AWS has a database service which is basically a very easy to operate enterprise cluster with the AWS people taking care of all the harder stuff like replication, backup, rollback and backup etc
Is anyone interested in hearing about this -- just post below. If there's lots of interest we can prepare a formal how to. If just a little interest we can PM and send links
Either way it'll be nice to give a bit back
Just this afternoon got a request to investigate issues with a C5 site running via a clustered environment on Amazon. Looks like the usual things that affect clustered setups - cached files missing, session's bouncing etc. But would be good to have some reference material for the future (and/or build a definitive guide to running a C5 instance on multiple servers)
We'll post the initial howto link back to this post
You have my interest peaked. I'd probably try to use the method for a different CMS than Concrete5.
Yes we're a bit blown away by AWS. Looking forward to comments and questions. We're also here to learn
We kind of had an intuition that it was going to be easy. And it is.
It's just the docs that are a bit tricky -- of necessity. They have to cover off a lot of stuff
