Moved to AWS!

This website is now being hosted on a cluster of servers within AWS. I definitely use this website as an excuse to learn more about infrastructure. I’ll post more about it soon, but currently we are fault tolerant. We are using two EC2 instances running apache, EFS holding the files, and an RDS instance running the database. This is behind an Application Load Balancer and the javascript and pictures are being served over CloudFront. It’s a little slow though for me, I’m trying to figure out why. If you aren’t logged in you’ll have a better experience. I’m gathering metrics on load times to help see what the story is.
