Welcome to the Amazon Cloud

In preparation, for an open beta Blog Traffic Exchange is moving into the Amazon Cloud (specifically EC2, EBS, and S3) using Scalr.net

If you find something not working please leave a comment here…

As far as I can tell everything is now working in a baseline setup… I have a few more things to setup and when complete I will give a full writeup.

I have a quick question. How many servers are you running on your Scalr farm.

Welcome back I had a day or so when your site disappered. The new site seems all functional on my end. Good luck with the new setup!

At the exact moment 3. An nginx server, an app server, and a db server…

Bit of an overkill for just the blog eh?

Scalr.net provides a framework, monitor, and execution to scale up www, app, and db instance as needed.

At the moment I am struggling with using gluster to share files across the app servers or mounting s3 as a drive a pushing my entire www tree into s3.

ok 4 servers… (3 more than I would need for wordpress alone.) I added a second farm, which will isolate wordpress and likely make it so that it never scales over 1 instance.
