We currently have a rented VPS with such setup:
- MySQL service (multiple databases (schemas) inside)
- Multiple JVM services (Netty based API services).
We need to be able to withstand high load peaks so we are thinking about moving to AWS. I have little experience with AWS management and have questions about it:
- Do standalone services need to be adapted for running in AWS? If not, maybe it's still preferable?
- Can multiple services (MySQL database + a couple API services) be running on a single computing instance? If so, is it easy enough to later move one of them to it's own computing instance?
