Our development team provides development and hosting for a variety of custom built Drupal based websites. Recently, we moved from locally self-managed hosting services to an AWS cloud based system with a Jenkins & Github based automation pipeline. In this session, we'll cover the benefits of automation, our AWS infrastructure, our automation pipeline, server monitoring, as well as the challenges and things we learned during the process.
This is a high level talk about what it takes to manage a custom cloud based development pipeline using mostly open source software. No code experience necessary, but infrastructure and deployment experience will be useful. This talk is targeted at folks who might be considering moving to the cloud or adding some automation to their existing infrastructure.
