I want to deploy mailwizz solution on amazon ec2 & use amazon ses infrastructure for the entire operations..
any suggestions.. what type of ec2 size should i select? do i get a cpanel image? any suggestions
Ask them specifically to make sure your IPs stay the same as assigned.
One of the biggest stability problems with cloud is the floating IP issue.
And if you want to grow, make sure they can give you more IPs as well.
Also, ask that you can truly set the FQDN and do not get some instance name.
Further, the IPs should be IPv4 and not virtually assigned with dhcp.
It requires a fair amount of technical expertise to host on EC2 indeed, but I DO NOT recommend that you install the heavy cpanel on your MW sending server it is useless, what would be the use? To make it easier to host on EC2 you should use the Bitnami platform, it still requires a certain amount of technical knowledge but their platform is very well documented and everything is pretty much straightforward. And it cannot be easier to add IPs, STATIC IPs, as you need them...do i get these options while buying amazon ec2? it is confusing to purchase with amazon..
