Getting your application deployed on AWS – or any IaaS platform for that matter – is not straight forward. That is why most developers get help from experts like Skyscrapers. However, getting it deployed for maximal availability is one thing, how do you get the optimal performance / price ratio? What instance type do you chose for your front-end, for the back-end?
Ideally, there would be an independent lab testing out all kinds of scenario’s which shows you hard numbers and fully discloses how the tests have been done.
