Diving into AWS

I’ve previously dabbled with AWS but never properly setup an EC2 instance for a production-ready site on my own until today.  There’s definitely more configuration than spinning up sites from a web hosting provider such as GoDaddy, but definitely a lot more granular control of the configuration.

Just following the AWS EC2 setup guide, and then setting up a basic LAMP stack.  Will update the basic steps and gotchas once I have it all up and running.

I’ve also dabbled with Microsoft Azure, but I’m particularly keen on exploring Google Cloud in more depth.  Primarily as I understand it provides applications hosted on their cloud access through Google Global Cache, which is Google’s CDN (Content Delivery Network) – one of the few CDN’s currently available in developing countries such as Myanmar to speed up delivery of internet services via caching.
