I came across BitNami Cloud Hosting as a facilitator for deploying WP to Amazon, which seems to greatly simplify the process.
Incidentally, was looking for a way to implement WP on my local machine and BitNami is listed in the Codex as one of the solutions... that's how I found out about them.
Has anyone else gone this route?
When using Amazon for hosting (I think using EC2), how do you choose/allocate resources?
- How much RAM?
- How many cores?
- Get 32-bit vs. 64-bit?
Looks like RAM is pricey compared to dedicated servers (and even more so when comparing with VPS) but maybe WP multisite does not need that much RAM?
I am looking for a configuration that would satisfy a WP multisite install that would scale to 1,000 subsites of mostly lower traffic photography related websites.
Any insights or experience you have along those lines would be greatly appreciated!
