I have a web architecture using Apache as front-end and Nodejs as back-end. I want to migrate this architecture to AWS. Node.js is going to be an Elastic Beanstalk and Apache will be stored on Amazon S3 (it stores only static files).
I use these directives to map the /api URL path to the back-end in Apache :
<Location /api> ProxyPass http://localhost:8081/api </Location>
I would like to use the same mechanism in AWS. I found out that Amazon S3 is not going to be able to do this since it is only a storage service.
I found out that
Amazon CloudFront can use multiples
Amazon CloudFront Origins that can be
Amazon S3 buckets or
Amazon Elastic Load Balancers. Then, I would use an
Amazon EC2 to host my Node.js application back-end with an
Amazon Load Balancer
The final architecture would then be
- Amazon Elastic Load Balancer -> Amazon EC2 /api / / -->Amazon CloudFront-< \ else \ - Amazon S3
Does this type of architecture is possible ? If yes, is it the best way to achieve this kind of architecture in AWS ?
Thanks everybody for your responses !
