  • All the servers except the RDP server were hosted in private subnet
  • Only load balancer and RDP servers were in public subnet
  • The web servers had a file server mounted for use during deployments as well as user uploads
  • SQL Server Standard License was included as part of the AWS Infra Cost
  • Active Directory and DNS were run in High Availability mode across 2 AZ’s, one in an EC2 and one in file server
  • AWS S3 was used for any Data / Logs backups.
  • NAT Gateway was added which is Highly Available AWS Managed Service.
  • Periodic Automatic Snapshots were built in, on successful completion of POC.
  • EBS – Extension of Hard disk size was automated to manage cost and data growth requirements.
  • AWS CloudWatch was used for monitoring.
  • AWS CloudTrail was setup for API and account activity tracking.


App Maisters team went online with a reliable infrastructure which met all of their demands. Because of the elastic nature of the architecture, the solution was able to scale to meet demand of the application when the traffic was high on the websites.
