    We use WordPress primarily for the purpose of delivering content. I set up a nignx server on EC2 on AWS, used mysql for RDS, and EC2 uses a load balancer with a two-unit configuration. I used to use a shared server in Japan before, but during the lunch break in Japan and the time after leaving the office, access is slow, and the annual contract certificate has not been renewed, so I can not access via https. There was a problem such as. After switching to AWS, the certificate is automatically renewed and you can use it without forgetting to renew it. Also, by using CloudFront, you can use the edge server, and the display of the web page has become much faster even if you are in Thailand. By duplicating the Web server, stable content distribution has become possible.

    In addition, some applications are developed in-house. The figure below is the AWS environment used for development with Laravel. This environment is mainly aimed at managing customers and providing services to customers, but since it is accessed by thousands of customers and especially the closing process of payment at the end of the month requires heavy processing, processing is required.

    The advantages and disadvantages I feel while using the AWS Cloud system are as follows.

    Advantages
    Extensibility

    Memory, CPU, storage capacity, etc. can be easily expanded.


    Significantly reduce the burden on IT

    Since there are almost no failures, there is no need to deal with failures, and the work of IT administrators such as hardware maintenance and backup can be reduced.


    No space is required to place the server.

    Until now, it is no longer necessary to create a server room, cool the air conditioner for 24 hours, and install a UPS for the server in the second year to replace the battery.


    High degree of freedom

    You can use a free environment unlike a shared server


    Test environment

    You can easily create and delete test environments.


    Backup

    Backup and recovery can be done easily.


    BCP

    Since the data and system are on the cloud, business continuity is possible even in the event of a disaster. I think it can also be used for IT Audit.

    Disadvantages
    Difficult to budget costs

    Since it is a pay-as-you-go charge, it is difficult to budget the cost compared to a flat-rate service.


    Know-how required

    AWS has over 100 services. We think it is necessary to determine which service is appropriate, knowledge about installation, and create a system that allows users to manage operations after installation.

    Comment from Mr. Shiotani (a2network)

    I have been working in Thailand for over 10 years. Since the network environment is much better than before, it is easier to use the cloud environment. In particular, he is an in-house IT person who operates a server on-premises, and for those who support computers, I think that it can lead to reduction of work man-hours, simplification of support support, cost reduction, etc., so it is recommended to move to AWS.
