comment Backing up onto S3 - do I want to use bucket in a different region?
@imperalix I'd figured as Oregon is in the PNW that it's there. A look at the AWS infrastructure page indicates they also have a Seattle location. Not clear which they use from the docs I've seen.

comment How to clean up stuff from roles that aren't used any more on a server?
I would argue Ansible isn't really designed for this sort of thing. It's targeted at reproducible, disposable servers. If you don't want a machine being a webserver any more, you just wipe it (or terminate it if it's a cloud instance) rather than repurposing it.

comment How do I troubleshoot latency issues with elastic load balancer (ELB) in Amazon AWS?
Often, replacing the ELB with a new one helps with this sort of issue.

comment Moving from Parse cloud to AWS
That's way too broad for here. You'll need to build your own API with a server-side language and host it. It's likely to be much harder and more costly than just using Parse, especially if you already built the Parse end of things.

comment Moving from Parse cloud to AWS
It should be noted that AWS doesn't provide something like Parse out-of-the-box. You're going to have to build significant parts of it yourself. Won't be much fun.

"however for some reason I need to switch to AWS now" Why the vagueness? The reasons would probably help us help you.

comment I am having issues connecting to an Amazon RDS instance from an EC2 server, can connect from EVERYWHERE else
Have you allowed the security group to access its own 3306 port? Your EC2 instance will be using an internal AWS IP to connect, not its Elastic IP.

Larter instances have more ENIs. You might want to contact AWS Support and ask if they can help you with your use case.

comment Openstack Neutron on top of Amazon VPC
What limits are a problem for you? AWS lets you request nearly any limit be raised, you just have to explain why. I've never had trouble and it usually happens within 24h.

comment What's the best way to sync folders across 03 or more webservers?
I'd focus on the "random reboots" aspect more than the "shared filesystem" bit.

comment VPS versus Cloud
@NigelAlderton You're not looking particularly hard in their docs, then. In most cases it'll be called "snapshots". You can snapshot a VM and launch exact copies of it.
