WordPress on S3: run it anywhere

Where to host a dynamic website that stores all its content on Amazon S3? Anywhere you choose to.

OblakSoft is pleased to announce availability of an OVF Virtual Appliance with ready-to-run WordPress on S3: Yapixx.  Now WordPress on S3 can run anywhere, not just in Amazon EC2.

Any web server

The virtual appliance is distributed in the Open Virtualization Format that is supported by most major hypervisor software vendors (such as VMware, VirtualBox, Oracle VM, etc.).  The virtual appliance (one-file OVA package) contains the same software components as the corresponding Yapixx Amazon Machine Image (AMI).

The Yapixx VM has the following software components:

  • Linux 2.6.37-slitaz x86 32-bit
  • ClouSE 1.0b.1.1
  • MySQL 5.5.19
  • Apache 2.2.22
  • PHP 5.2.17
  • WordPress 3.3.2
  • WP2Cloud plugin 1.0.2

Let us know if you’d prefer us to assemble or help you to assemble a Virtual Appliance with a different LAMP configuration.

Run anywhere

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, in a colocation datacenter, or in Amazon EC2.

Note that you can guarantee data confidentiality in the cloud by running the webserver in a datacenter that is different than the datacenter managing your data (Amazon S3). ClouSE encrypts relational data using strong AES-256 encryption before it leaves the database management site. This ensures that the data is visible neither on the wire nor at the cloud storage provider site. In that respect, ClouSE is the only cloud-based relational data management technology available today that solves the problem of data confidentiality in the cloud.

Replicate data no more

The website data is stored safely and securely 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 to switch between a server in your datacenter and an Amazon EC2 instance in the cloud.

The step-by-step Yapixx virtual appliance configuration instructions are available here.
