The Cost of Hosting on Amazon

Mather Corgan, president of HotPads, gave a great talk on how HotPads uses AWS to run their real estate search engine. HotPads abandoned their managed hosting in December and took the leap over to EC2 and its siblings. The presentation has a lot of detail on costs and other things to watch out for, so if you’re currently planning your “cloud” architecture, you’ll find some of this really helpful.

  1. Wow, thanks for the tip! I’ve been looking to migrate over to EC2 and other Amazon services for a while now.

    Interesting though, I thought I came here from “PHP::Impact ( [str Blog] )” (as per my RSS reader, Google Reader) – did you recently undergo a site overhaul, or what?
