I have a simple LAMP stack on an EBS Ubuntu instance on AWS EC2.
It's been running well for a while now, but I'm now starting to run low on hard disk space.
What are my options?
I've already attached an EBS volume and moved logs etc to it, but the MySQL database continues to grow.
Do I move the database to the attached volume? I have serious concerns about this though. Database speed is currently the performance bottleneck in the LAMP stack, and moving the database to an EBS could incur a considerable performance hit (if the speed of moving files to and from the volumes is anything to go by?)
