We are looking for high availability and scalability, and by using EC2 we can be less worried about buying our own servers etc.. Since ours is a small business..What all we need is
1.Data being quried out of DB via website
2.Data being written into DB via forms on website
3.Export batches/2 or 3 excel files into few tables
Thats all ..
No Log shipping
Automated Jobs etc
Thank You Steve. SO what you said is in reference to S3 storage right ?
As i told you we are using EC2 which will have its own virtual servers.
So would that still be a negative aspect to what we are trying to accomplish.
thank You cornis. Jungle-disk is cool. But my problem is
1. My managements asked me to design a DB
2. then integrate it to Web and
3. Once all design is set .. They want to move it to cloud
so that they have less burden of managing the servers..
So do they still need a DBA after Step 2 ?
I don't want myself to be laid off
Today is the tomorrow you worried about yesterday:-)
