@febbraro and I presented our work hosting Drupal on Amazon AWS at Drupalcon last night. Thanks to everybody who could make it. Slides below for download.

We talked about scaling challenges we face doing nonprofit campaigns for the Case Foundation. These are typically limited-time campaigns, with press releases or other promotion.

Our challenge has been supporting relatively high loads for a short time — without going broke. Amazon’s EC2 servers-on-demand have been great for this. Here’s how we use AWS, and architectural issues anyone will face hosting Drupal on the Amazon cloud.

Update: Alan Doucette was kind enough to post video of the talk. Thanks, Alan!…
