WordPress on S3: run it anywhere


Published on

Now that you can run dynamic websites off Amazon S3 storage, the next question is where to host the site? Anywhere.
OblakSoft is pleased to announce availability of an OVF Virtual Appliance with ready-to-run WordPress on S3: Yapixx. Use Yapixx as a starting point to build your own WordPress on S3.
The Yapixx-based website can be launched in a matter of minutes on most virtualization platforms, incl. VMware, VirtualBox, Oracle VM.
A Web server running the website can be hosted pretty much anywhere. Depending on your needs, the Web server can run from your premise, by your favorite hoster or in Amazon EC2.
As for the website data, it is stored safely in Amazon S3 and is available where-ever and when-ever you need it. You no longer need to move data around.
Moving the webserver between Amazon EC2 and on-premise facility is a matter of minutes. This makes scenarios such as failover or load balancing to the cloud very simple. You can now run the Yapixx crash test (http://www.slideshare.net/artemlivshits/wordpress-on-s3-no-more-backups) to switch between a server in your datacenter and an Amazon EC2 instance in the cloud.
The slides contain step-by-step visual instructions to configure WordPress on S3 OVF Virtual Appliance using VirtualBox.
Launch your own WordPress site to the cloud today! It’s easy and FREE, no writing code is required. Get Yapixx virtual appliance today for FREE at http://www.oblaksoft.com/downloads.
