I currently have a T1.micro for development running Windows with SQL server 2008.
The system allows students to come to our site to search for a mentor, update their profile with pictures and employment history etc. Roughly the same sort of work as a LinkedIn profile.
I need this to be able to scale very quickly without wasted resources.
I understand the following is important.
Separation of data, application etc. I will achieve this I think by hosting images using S3, Database instance via RDS and upgrade the EC2 instance.
How do I push data / code out to multiple ec2 / RDS instances seamlessly?
