Hope you can find a nugget here and there

Over time this notebook has grown and grown. The notebook consists of a considerable number of web pages. I hope you will find some nuggets here and there.

Originated as a personal notebook

This project started initially as a personal journal to help myself to consistently and efficiently configure the budget friendly Amazon Web Services EC2 VPS server. This site still is a work in progress and will continue to be so until I retire. This VPS web server runs the latest Ubuntu with an external database server and two external cache servers. In the future hopefully with a third cache server to pick up even more speed. Page delivery speed matters a lot. Currently, most pages loads on less than a second when testing on Pingdom Tools.

Finally powering down the data center

I started using EC2 Ubuntu VPS servers somewhere between 2005 and 2010. Been running a datacenter with standard servers and VMware VPS servers since 1997. Finally powering down the data center in Bergen in 2008. Since then the EC2 virtual private server together with the database server RDS, the cache server ElastiCache, and the CloudFlare services been a core part of my business.

Load time less than a second

The VPS servers are for both the customer- and company’s services. I need a solution to fast and easily setup a customized server. The solution should be able to serve web pages that take less than a second to load for most pages. The server must rely on cloud services with a budget-friendly price tag. Further is the concept to offload the web server by using CDN and cache services. Use of cloud services leads to better stability, less downtime, and budget friendliness.
