I figure this group of people might be interested in this.
Spent a good portion of last night finishing up the migration of my personal sites to AWS. Nothing fancy. Just a few web nodes behind a load balancer.
Still… I’m at least no longer freeloading off of my buddies vSphere stack.
We use AWS exclusively at work. The more I use it there, the more I thought about moving my stuff to it. Finally just bit the bullet and did it. For the measly traffic I get, it shouldn’t cost more than $20/month. Everything I have runs off of their free tier VM size.
I’ll be working on setting up some auto-scaling groups more for auto-healing than for the redundancy. Just need to script out new VM creation.
The latest version of Grafana has native MySQL integration for pulling data. No longer have to use logstash to rip data out of mysql and drop it into elasticsearch.
