WordPress is beloved as simple, easy way to get a site off the ground but it has a reputations as being difficult to manage and scale up when a site gets a lot of traffic. Once you hit the limits of what a single server can manage, it becomes a pain to expand to multiple servers and configure a shared database to meet demand.
At drie, we saw this as an opportunity to show what we can do with our CloudFormation templates, the tool we use to bring our scalable high-traffic architecture to AWS. We’ve built a high-performance, configurable template for WordPress in the AWS cloud. It makes it easy to run your blog on anywhere from one server to a pool of hundreds.
