Dr Clonelove: How I learned to stop worrying and love the cloud

Your session in a few words: 
Scaling Drupal with Cloud Computing (EC2)
September 4, 2009 - 11:20 - 12:10
La Resserre
Business development and strategy
Session Type: 
Level of expertise: 

A best practice approach to moving into the Cloud. We will explain the how we built the server infrastructure for School of Everything on Amazon's Elastic Computing Cloud (EC2).

* Getting started in the cloud
* How to safely move your servers into a cloud cluster
* What tools Amazon gives you
* Mysql Clustering with Mysql-Proxy

The session is relatively technical, with enough meat for a sysadmin to attend but is also high level enough to cover business elements. We also drop in more than enough Star Wars jokes to keep anyone entertained.

The session will be an evolution of a talk already presented at Amazon's Roadshow, The Cloud Expo and a London Enterprise Drupal meetup. Slides can be found onSlideShare
