Sample Architectures

AWS Auto Scale

Single web server setup. This is meant to mimic a more traditional and familiar web hosting setup. The simplest and most cost efficient setup. NAT instance is optional, but recommended.

AWS Enterprise

Redundant auto-scale web server setup. Pictured above is web traffic through Route53 DNS to an Elastic Load Balancer from the internet. This will flow into an auto-scaling redundant (multi availability zone) web server group, with redundant Redis clustering and redundant MySQL RDS instances. Media files are served from a shared S3 bucket (99.999999999% availability). Access to the client is served through a secure VPC VPN gateway to the client. This is a highly available solution.

AWS Multi Server

Single Availability Zone Web Server Cluster. Redundant Web Servers tied to single Redis Elasticache and MySQL RDS instances. This is a cost controlled setup.

AWS Single Web Server

Single Availability Zone Auto-scaling web server setup. Makes use of Redis Elasticache, and MySQL RDS. Services are access controlled via security groups. This is a more cost efficient, though less available solution.
