Using the Amazon Cloudformation Service for instant Drupal Commons Powered Sites
Attendees will learn about the Amazon Cloudformation Service and how with some basic templating, a Drupal site can be created within a matter of minutes. This offers the benefit of keeping the configuration and template information in a small text file that can be managed with a version control system instead of storing large machine images in the Amazon Cloud. This saves cost and allows any number of duplicate sites to be created quickly to scale to customer needs. Radiant Blue Technologies has been utilizing the Amazon Cloud with a government intelligence agency with great success over the past six months.
