- The Challenge
- Find a cost effective, low maintenance and fast solution to host a static website that should be reachable during monthly peak booking times of our customer. The old hosting solution worked perfectly fine 95% of the time. Due to high demand and fairness to all customers of The Flat Vienna 1010, the owners open up bookings for only one month each. This means that when new bookings are announced at the end of the month, many customers try to get their booking - slowing down the performance or even making the booking service unavailable.
- The solution is elegant and simple. The customer provided homepage was first put into a Version Control System (VCS) to provide the site builder a way to track versions. A S3 bucket was created and an automation which pulls the latest changes from version control to the bucket implemented. A cloudfront distribution was created and the issued Certificate from the Certificate Manager used. The DNS entry, which is currently hosted at another provider got pointed to the cloundfront distribution
