hi all, I’m trying to get a grasp of what it is exactly that you plan to run on aws ?
I’m not sure if it is going to virtual machines or the services
services like mariadb/webservers/gitlab/awx/idm
In my experience as an infrastructure architect, you are going to be in for a financial nightmare if you are going to run virtual machines hosted by a cloud provider like aws/azure/google. There are many much less expensive hosting providers that provide that service.
if you look up the pricing of their virtual machines hosting you will find that after a year you could have paid for a high end server stored in a rack at your local hosting provider.
or to put it short, renting a virtual machine in the aws/azure/google cloud is insanely expensive.
it’s a lot cheaper to rent some real iron or a virtual provided server at a provider that is not AWS/Google/Azure
you can always create you own HA by renting multiple cheap vps at several hosting providers, then connecting them with vpn (like wireguard)
