Cloud discussion about leveraging AWS features for load balancing and failover, and how to help your customers feel secure about their data in the cloud.
iscussion of FileMaker Webdirect and AWS load balancing and failover options, including a rundown of experiments using the AWS load balancer with both FileMaker Cloud and ‘regular’ FileMaker Server running on a Windows server instance in the cloud. Interactive discussion of how FileMaker could leverage the inherent AWS load-balancing health checks or DNS failover to achieve true server failover as well as balance a larger load across multiple FileMaker servers for better performance.
This is an opportunity for people to share their approaches to performance optimization and failover in heavy load scenarios. My explorations have been focused on a load balancing and failover approach, but there are others, and some may be able to share their own experiences with cloud deployments. There will also be a discussion about cloud security breaches and how they are often simple misconfiguration errors that can be avoided. Again, other will hopefully share their perspectives and experiences with cloud security.
