Rather than relying on a single instance which is a single point of failure, we will explain how you would go about building a resilient hosting infrastructure for your website which is fault-tolerant, to ensure maximum uptime, performance and availability of your site.
This process is simply to demonstrate the fundamentals of creating a highly available WordPress website and does not include the complex routing policies, security measures and production-ready configurations we use for our client website. Please contact us if you would like to learn more about this process and how Web.Eng can help you achieve it.
Hosting your website on the biggest (and best, according to us) cloud platform in the world can hold many benefits for your business. These setups can get complex and time consuming, which is why Web.Eng has decided to focus our efforts in helping customers accomplish this with the highest levels of support.
Not too long ago, business required to host physical hardware in multiple datacentres, manage web servers, database servers, load balancers, networking etc — and for a simple WordPress site the cost and complexity would probably have outweighed any benefits you may have realised.
Fortunately, Web.Eng saw that with AWS Public Cloud, this is no longer the case. You will still require all of the above components, but all are accessible via the same AWS console, and of course as with all AWS services, you will only pay for what you use, rather than have expensive hardware sitting around virtually idle most of the time.
