Re: Help in hosting buddypress on Amazon EC2
We have two social network sites (one with a semantic web component) that we\’ll be hosting on slicehost. We plan to utilize Amazon\’s S3 for storage of all user uploaded media content.
As the sites grow, we may also use Amazon\’s CloudFront for a more robust content delivery network. I do not see us using Amazon\’s EC2. Slicehost combined with S3 will give us more than enough control over our costs, bandwidth utilization, and server load.
For one of these sites, we are also experimenting with HyperDB, the replacement database class to the standard WPDB.
