Amazon EC2 startups and scalability

Senthil Nayagam

I have been investigating EC2 for over 2 months now.

after many years I am doing R&D and installations on linux.

we are seriously considering EC2/S3 for scaling for our startup.

 

have tested with following stacks

Ruby on rails
mysql 5
apache 2.23
mongrel
imagemagick

 

 multimedia server
red5
imagemagick
ffmpeg

 there are still some peices missing in this jigsaw puzzle, hope amazon fixes those in time for our public launch

my expectation includes 

1) dedicated IP address
2) persistent storage
3) scalable DB solution(what if server crashes, I should not lose data)
4) support for load balancers

will update this article with additional information
