Concrete Software’s cloud services team implemented an automated framework to serve the https://concretesoftware.com WordPress website in a highly available, scalable, fast, and secure manner by leveraging AWS S3 and CloudFront technologies.
Concrete Software’s https://concretesoftware.com website provides a place for customers to view the company’s games, services, news, promotions, and contact support should they have any questions. The site is setup within WordPress and previously it was hosted on a single Linux server. This lead to several issues that we needed to address:
Concrete Software’s cloud services team designed and implemented an automated framework so the https://concretesoftware.com site is still edited using WordPress, and is published from WordPress to AWS S3 and CloudFront, making it more available, scalable, secure, and fast. The framework utilizes the following AWS cloud resources:
The main costs are the EC2 instance and CloudFront outbound data transfer fees. We use a smaller reserved EC2 instance to reduce its cost. The outbound data transfer fees were the same as the previous implementation, just charged through a different service. We are only charged when a customer visits the site, so we can be assured that no resources are wasted.
