We have successfully moved our app to AWS Beanstalk (https://app.zegenie.com) with redis-oplog (redis cluster using Elasticache) and our own replicated DB (with arbiter). We also use Nagios for real-time remote monitoring of our DB + servers (we use passive checks for the app servers as we can’t tell in advance IP addresses or even number of instances in advance). We also use meteor APM (formerly kadira) on a cheap instance.
It can’t get any more production than this, and it’s been working great.
Is there enough interest that we would write a tutorial? If we do this, will we hurt Galaxy?
