What do you, Adobe Systems, Bristol-Myers Squibb, Citrix, Expedia, Lamborghini, Netflix, Outback Steakhouse, Pinterest, Spotify, and Zumba Fitness all have in common? These companies and thousands more, rely on Amazon Web Services (AWS) to build scalable and highly reliable computing solutions for their companies, and you have access to those same resources. And, you can get started using AWS, for free. The content management platform that powers more that 20% of the websites on the Internet today, WordPress, is also free for you to use. Whether you use AWS to build and host your WordPress production site, or use it for rapid development and testing, you can learn how create and manage your own solution with the world leader in cloud computing technology, Amazon. While it is easy to firing up a server, things don’t always work as we want right out of the gate. In this session, we’ll walk thru setting up a Linux webserver using AWS, load WordPress, and see first hand how you can quickly and easily manage, test, and backup your WordPress site.
