We are running some tests on this now using amazon VPC to persist an internal ip, and RDS for the database. It seems to be working fine so far.
We do, at request, license ip ranges in EPiServer 7. So you could use a VPC together with a range license spin up/down machines at will.
Is it possible to have such a license for Episerver Create? (CMS6 + Composer + Imagevault)
We have been using Amazon AWS cloud computing for a number of developement projects. We find it allows us to very quickly build environments to test infrastructures without the need for raising purchase requests with all the time and red tape this takes. We have also used them as a temporary development machines when we have extra developers on the team.
The issue I see is that Amazon Servers always have a new IP address and MAC address when starting them up. This obviously means the Epi installation is going to moan due to an invalid developer licence. The amazon solution is great for us in that we can adapt quickly and bring servers temporaliy on line for a relalitvely low cost.
Does anyone know of a solution to this issue? I have spoken to Amazon and as expected due to the nature of there systems they suggested I contacted epiServer
