I have a website which has a 5 GB big mysql database.
I am thinking if it is a good idea to move only the database to amazon, all front-end etc. (PHP) will remain.
I've red already a lot about my Idea and I am not sure whether it is a good idea. Some people say its not a good idea to move a database file to EC2, I will need ECB for a relational Database file like MySQL.
And the amazon FAQ etc. are filled with so much informations I can hardly decide what is important and whats not.
Someone can comment on this? That would be helpful.
P.S.: I am not the owner the main person is to busy atm. and asked me to do the research.
Thanks! I hope I am not off-topic. If so I am sorry, provide me then the right StackExchange where to post such a question.
