We’re in the process of moving all our Moodle hosting to Amazon AWS EC2 instances.
I have to say we’ve been really impressed by the service so far, and the fast technical support.Setting up Moodle on AWS EC2 is not for the faint-hearted, and shouldn’t be considered by the ‘average’ (only semi-technical) teacher for example, who would be far better using a Moodle Partner or other Moodle hosting specialist.
For those interested in running a small low-cost Moodle site, there is a free tier available (for a year), although this is limited to a t1.micro instance. With .75Gb RAM max, this isn’t enough for a working Moodle site, but it is enough for a small Moodle test site – so great for ‘learning by doing’ for new Moodle Administrators.
I’ll blog some more about AWS in the future as we gain more experience with it
