Project consists of setting up the following on the same or separate instances. (Your call on how many instances.)
1.) Ruby on Rails site
2.) Magento Ecommerce site (php)
3.) Joomla site (php)
I want to use the following: ECS, EBS (just announced), S3 and a third party forwarding service such as authsmtp, easydns, or dnsmadeeasy for email distribution (so emails won't be blacklisted or rejected as spammed). I am also open to using services such as GoGrid or Rightscale which can simplify the management of AWS. I have accounts with all of these. (Again, I'm looking for the easiest solution from an administration and bug-free standpoint.)
A few other notes:
1.) You'll have to setup each instance.
2.) I want to be able to make daily (perhaps twice a day) backups of the sites.
3.) I would also like for the provider to walk me through their process and educate me on the whole "elastic/grid" setup. From provisioning an instance to the daily management of said task. (I can imagine I will have questions regarding dns, storage, etc.)
This project should be rather simple for someone experienced with AWS. I will supply all db and site files.
Project would start immediately. I would like to have everything completed within 3-4 days.
