I'm not a developer, far from it, but I'm looking 1) for cost effective server power and 2)on demand scalability.
We're currently hosting our staging site on a vps with cbeyond but we're going to need a much more powerful server when we go live. so my options are upgrade with cbeyond (very pricy) or migrate.
Before I present to my developer "lets move to AWS" i want to know the headaches that will be involved and if its even doable. I dont want to present him with yet another difficult task right before we launch, but we both agree that a more powerful server is needed.
We're running asp.net 3.5 and sql server 2008. Is there a steep learning curve required to move over to AWS (any suggested resources) or can we still run all the famailiar microsoft technology with AWS?
1) asp.net /sql possible on AWS?
2) headaches presented by this?
3) suggested resources?
Thanks in advance.
