[PLUG] [plug-announce] Tue, Jul 12, 2016: PLUG North - "Highly Available, Fault-Tolerant App Environments with AWS" by Ronald P. Guilmet (*6:30 pm* at CoreDial in Blue Bell)

PLUG North will be meeting on Tuesday, July 12 at CoreDial's
offices in Blue Bell, beginning at 6:30 pm. Directions to the meeting
location can be found at the end of this email.  

This month, Ronald P. Guilmet will present a talk on Amazon Web Services,
and will build a highly-available, fault-tolerant application
environment during the presentation.

The app used for the demonstration will be a WordPress installation
using Amazon's Relational Database Service (RDS). The database will be
setup with multi availability zones AZ, for high availability and fault

The demo will also show how to:

  - Use Amazon CloudFront as a CDN, caching the static files around the
    world for improved latency

  - Use the W3 Total Cache plugin, which will automatically update the
    CloudFront CDN files

  - Create a skeleton Amazon Machine Image (AMI)
  - Bootstrap with Auto Scaling, which will automatically create or
    terminal Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) as the load increases or 

  - Configure Route53 to handle the DNS and support failover

At 6:30, prior to the main meeting, we'll assemble in CoreDial's game room
for shuffleboard, pool, and conversation

The meeting will take place from 6:30-9pm (6:30-7 games and conversation,
7-8 General Q&A, 8-9 Presentation) at CoreDial's new office space in Blue
Bell, PA.
