Quick deployment with Amazon AWS Lightsail and Drupal 8

Posted on: Thu, 07/20/2017 - 22:00 By: oswald.constable

Over the light several months, I've explored Amazon AWS Lightsail's offerings. I signed up, created a few low spec VMs to evaluate the platform. Overall I was impressed but did not have an immediate need to utilize the platform -- that was until I decided no more self-hosting the Mayatonia website from my home network. Although I am on a very stable Verizon fios connection, the unpredictability of my home network and and varied uptime of my host virtual machine (runs Cent OS 7) made it impractical solution when 99.99% availability was my goal.

In the next few days and weeks, I will document my journey from self-hosting to migrating mayatonia.com on Amazon AWS platform. We'll explore the DNS Management features, and how I integrated it with Google's individual G-Suite SAAS product for email hosting the mayatonia.com domain.
