The admin*team at The UNIX Forums*have been considering moving the UNIX and*Linux*Forums to the clouds - the Amazon Web Services (AWS) cloud.* Amazon EC2 is one option to scale the forums, which is a*LAMP application.*
Amazon EC2 allows*us to rent dedicated servers (instances) on-demand to run applications, such as the forums.* Then we can run and host on EC2 any Linux application; but unlike classic hosting where*folks install your application and set up your server for you, Amazon Web Services provide*only*the infrastructure.
This is awesome. I have started to use amazon ec2 recently for the last 3-4 months. I am also using s3 buckets, elbs and have recently put my hands on ami's using elastic block storage.
Sad to see so little activity in this forum.
