I recently had the opportunity to setup an Amazon AWS infrastructure. The request was for a scaling wordpress infrastructure that was highly available, redundant, and could scale to handle massive traffic (think, the slashdot effect) all while keeping costs as low as possible. This is how I did it!

(This is the 1st of a 4 part series)

The technologies used included:

  • Amazon AWS
  • Other Open Source tools/software/utilities

Stay tuned for part 2, where we begin setting up the infrastructure!
