This is the first in a series of articles that show you recommended techniques to design, configure, and deploy an application on the cloud. The article provides an overview of all the different steps needed to complete a 1-year long project that included enabling Moodle software to use DB2®, to configuring it, deploying it on the Amazon Cloud, working with the Rightscale platform to manage cloud instances, setting up HADR for disaster recovery, and ensuring to meet performance requirements. Future articles in the series will go into the details. The article series also discusses how openID sign-in capabilities were implemented, and how data on the site was made accessible through Android phones. The final result is the creation of db2university.com, an online educational website. Check it out!
