AWS: POC-How to Build WordPress web site in AWS Cloud/Network ?


Most of the Blogs on websites are operated by WordPress[WP] software which is developed in PHP. Even my site [vskumar.blog] is from this software. To setup the WP, there are tier based architecture/setup required. For PHP related software we can have a 2-tier architecture setup.

For detailed analysis and the required AWS components for setting up W, below blog you can visit/follow blog:
https://vskumar.blog/2018/12/31/2-aws-wordpresswp-infrastructure-creation-using-a-free-tier-account/

In this demo video the WP site building project was discussed with different design steps towards AWS components and it was demonstrated well by one of our [experienced IT Professional] students well.


These are weekly assignments they get and they need to prove by themselves with a demo in a team; like live environment how it happens in a typical project team. By attending this activity delivery on weekly basis, one will not get any fear/scareness on doing the live infra tasks. They will be habituated with the project activities when they join in real job. And they will be productive resources from day one onwards. These are the major benefits from my course.

AWS: POC-How to do VPC Peering with 2 VPCs ?

When we have two networks in traditional methods, we used to do internal networking within the premises. And used those servers for Software APIs. Also the Sysadmin/DBAs/Network Admin role people used to manage them well. But in Cloud how to implement this kind of setup ?

In this POC project, it is well proven how we can create such kind of environment by using 2 VPCs and their peering with deeper analysis and the design steps of different services. And how the private subnet related Linux and Windows EC2s can be accessed by using NAT and Jump Servers?. And how to operate another VPC EC2 from one VPC EC2 ? Just watch this design steps analysis video from the below link:

In the below video a POC analysis is discussed with an Experienced Cloud/DevOps professional.

A quick review on DevOps Practices for DevOps Engineers/Practitioners

Watch this video.

DevOps Patterns
devops-process
  1. DevOps is a terminology used to refer to a set of principles and practices to emphasize the collaboration and communication of Information Technology [IT] professionals in a software project organization, while automating the process of software delivery and infrastructure using Continuous Delivery Integration[CDI] methods.
  2. The DevOps is also connecting the teams of Development and Operations together to work collaboratively to deliver the Software to the customers in an iterative development model by adopting Continuous Delivery Integration [CDI] concepts. The software delivery happens  in small pieces at different delivery intervals. Sometimes these intervals can be accelerated depends on the customer demand.
  3. The DevOps is a new practice globally adopted by many companies and its importance and implementation is accelerating by maintaining constant speed.  So every IT professional need to learn the concepts of DevOps and its Continuous Delivery Integration [CDI] methods. To know the typical DevOps activities by role just watch the video: https://youtu.be/vpgi5zZd6bs, it is pasted below in videos.
  4. Even a college graduate or freshers also need to have this knowledge or practices to work closely with their new project teams in a company. If a fresher attends this course he/she can get into the project shoes faster to cope up with the  experienced teams.
  5. Another way; The DevOps is an extension practice of Agile and continuous delivery. To merge into this career; the IT professionals  need to learn the Agile concepts, Software configuration management, Release management, deployment management and  different DevOps principles and practices to implement the CDI patterns. The relevant tools for these practices integration. There are various tool vendors in the market. Also open source tools are very famous. Using these tools the DevOps practices can be integrated to maintain the speed for CDI.
  6. There  are tools related with version control and CDI automation. One need to learn the process steps related to these areas by attending a course. Then the tools can be understood easily.  If one understands these CDI automation practices and later on learning the tools process is very easy by self also depends on their work environment.
  7. As mentioned in the above; Every IT company or IT services company need to adopt the DevOps practices for their customers competent service delivery in global IT industry. When these companies adopt these practices, their resources also need to be with thorough knowledge of DevOps practices to serve to the customers. The companies can get more benefit by having these knowledged resources. At the same time the new joinees in any company either experienced or fresher professional if they have this knowledge, their CTC in view of perks will be offered more or with competent offer they may be invited to join in that company.
  8. Let us know if you need  DevOps training  from  the IT industry experienced people; which includes the above practice areas to boost you in the IT industry.

Why the DevOps practice team is required to involve in Infra cloud planning?

I was talking to some clients recently on the importance of Cloud migration activities planning. I have come with some guidelines for them as part of my engagement. Some of my guidelines given to them, I would like to share as below.

When the DevOps practice team need to do the infra setup  for a cloud migration they also need to participate on the identification of Infra activities and the specifications. Which is very essential.

This need to be done as initial step with any Cloud services migration.

As per my opinion we can work with any cloud services like; AWS/AZURE/Google Cloud, etc., by having the above activity as mandatory.

The attached blog/Video contains the same discussion with the details of the steps required to setup a Virtual Private Cloud. The VPC nomenclature we might have seen with AWS. But similar setup or name cane be there with other Cloud service providers also.

Once this VPC is created the systems are going to be hosted on Cloud.

The Ops team’s responsibility is; to make sure the Cloud migration is correctly and completely done for all the live setup.

At the same time they also need to conduct a pilot testing activity successfully which is mandated as per the Agile Projects management [Agile PM] standards before they announce go live.

They also need to do a parallel run along with the past production setup with a new cloud setup for few weeks.

Below URL contains the initial planning discussion as mentioned:
