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.

Do you want to become Cloud cum DevOps Architect in one go ?

How to become a Cloud cum DevOps Architect role, the IT industry demanding role to save costing ?

Many business based companies they might have the employee size from 50-40% only under the current global situation to save costing. They can attempt the first staff/contractor cut on IT professionals only to save costing. Globally, if we see from May to July 2020, crores [millions] of IT Professionals might come out by loosing the jobs.

What the IT Cos might look in In such case and how long an IT professional will be job less. I can say till he/she meets the technical requirement of a company in the global market to handle end to end. The companies would prefer to have multi Cloud skills to handle end to end engagement. They would like to follow a different strategy to work on cost efficient plans. They prefer the Cloud professional to plan everything and can execute the planned activities to implement by self including the Infra and DevOps automation. This is required for every IT Professionals; [it does’nt matter in what role they are; developer/tester/BA, etc..] to be aware of on their technical environments and do by self from end to end IT solutions.

But convincing/updates/approvals need to happen from the middle management only. In such case each individual need to assess at what level they are and how to fish the right job for them after few months. And in the meanwhile what skill gaps need to be upgraded to work as an individuals with the above mentioned automation areas by getting the massive infra/DevOps practices knowledge. For further the details see the below content which can help on your career rebuild plan to restart your second innings through this massive recession.

If you are more than 5 years Infra role experienced IT working Professional [from any country], you can become Cloud cum DevOps Architect by learning through experts coaching with live implementable activities.
There will be market crunch for this combinational skills and dryness happens very soon as per the IT research articles.

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:
