Hi all -
I am currently evaluating Amazons' services and was wondering if anyone in the community has some thoughts on creating a stack of solutions with Amazon. The stack would essentially look like this:
Route 53 for DNS, EC2 Instances for Web Serving, RDS for DBase operations, S3 for file storage
A bit of info on our requirements. Our DB is read heavy, and there would potentially be a large amount of traffic to the S3 storage as we will be hosting video files from there.
If anyone has any basic thoughts on an implementation like this from a technical/reliability stand point that would be great. I'm mostly interested in potential latency issues with everything living in the cloud and if anyone has experienced data loss with these services at all?
From what I have read so far, the services seem reliable but it never hurts to ask for more opinions.
