I’m looking to install MongoDB on an Amazon EC2 instance. To me, AMI doesn’t matter much… but maybe it should.
While searching online for how-to’s, I’ve only found thorough guides for installing MongoDB on Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL). In discovering those, I’ve also found that RHEL is supposedly “really good at database hosting for mission critical apps.”
How does RHEL compare to Ubuntu for database hosting with respect to Meteor apps? Does AMI matter, and if so why?
