Amazon EC2,S3,EBS,CloudFront. . .OH MY!

December 13, 2008 Leave a comment Go to comments

I have been working on some new projects since leaving my last job about 6 months ago.  One is to build an entire infrastructure that is highly available and redundant.  With Amazon Web Services this is a snap and almost makes my job obsolete.  With EC2, S3, EBS, and CloudFront you can build a scalable solution with dependable backups with ease.  My goal now is to also use AWS to create an intranet for the company.  I have not found much on this topic so I ma taking the time to document it here.  My ideas so far:

  • Use Fedora Directory Server as main LDAP solution.  This can be used with EBS (Elastic Block Storage) with striped volumes to store the LDAP data.  Along with having redundant multi-master replication geographically depending on where the EC2 instance is set.
  • Subversion server using EBS for storage.  Using EC2 for something along the lines of SVN is a good use since it speeds up performance.  Along with having the backup ability of EBS and EBS Snapshots
  • Twiki as documentation for intranet.
  • SugarCRM for customer relationship management which will include project management and bug tracking.
  • S3 for backing up users data automatically.  This is helpful since it is a telecommuting company. Using a tool like JungleDisk or similar.
  • The DEV and Staging environments will also be on AWS with same Amazon Machine Images (AMIs) as the production environment.

That is all I have so far I will update as the project comes along.

    I got to ur post via a recent google. Great ideas. What is the status in 2011, esp in light of the Amazon introducing a highly affordable micro instance on EC2, and many subsequent goodies.

    I am interested in putting up, micro- run, EC2 versions of Moodle (bitnami?), which can be run by individual teachers, or small schools, to help them get started on VLE and Moodle, for distance education/training. Building the infra structure, on a commonly shared, base, for many teachers/institutes, for administration, accounting, CRM and ERP, to run the community. This server will have an LDAP (which integrates with Moodle authentication), and also track the enrolement, fee payment etc, on a centralised basis.

    I look fwd to ur suggestions.

    This GPS provides an unsurpassed display, showing you topographical maps and current updates on the screen.
    It is one of the greatest investments for the safety
    of children one could make to feeling of losing your child even if it’s for minutes because it will be the most devastating and stressful situation you will ever go through. This is more evident from the fact that today you will be able to use your mobile phone as a Global Positioning System tracker.

    Hey there! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any trouble with
    hackers? My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing many months of hard work due
    to no backup. Do you have any methods to protect against hackers?
    It’s So much appreciated!

    Hi there just wanted to give you a quick heads up.
    The text in your content seem to be running off the screen in Internet explorer.
    I’m not sure if this is a formatting issue or something to do with browser compatibility but I figured I’d post to let you know.
    The design look great though! Hope you get the issue fixed soon.
    Many thanks

    You actually make it seem so easy with your
    presentation but I find this matter to be really something which I think I would never understand.
    It seems too complicated and extremely broad for me.
    I’m looking forward for your next post, I will try to get the hang of it!
