                           REAL TIME PROJECTS

PROJECT 1: Hosting a Static HTML website on S3.

We are hosting a html website on S3 bucket using static website hosting option on S3 and point the S3 bucket endpoint to a domain name using Route53.

PROJECT 2: Hosting a JAVA website 3 TIER website using Spot Instances.

We are hosting a java website on ELB, EC2 Spot Instances, and RDS.

We will use ELB as Web TIER and Spot Instances as APP Tier which hosts the application which we will deploy on Tomcat. And we will integrate JAVA app with RDS for DB TIER with Multi AZ enabled.

PROJECT 3: Hosting a WordPress Website as Redundant and Fault Tolerant using Multi Region Architecture.

We are hosting a WordPress website on AWS using ELB, Route53 Latency Routing Policy, EC2, and RDS Multi AZ.

We will host the website on two regions, so that if one region is fully down still our customers can be able to access the website without any downtime.
