The success of any site or app begins and ends with the site itself not going down. This step-by-step guide will teach you to eliminate potential points of failure, and guarantee the site is prepared for scaling and giant surges in traffic. Learn to ensure service availability for Linux, Apache, MySQL, and PHP based web applications. Plus, with this solution, you can repair failures on your own time and not in the middle of the night
This architecture & design:
Even though this course is targeted directly at the LAMP stack (Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP), the concepts and techniques presented can be reused in a variety of other situations. If you ever need a floating IP, the ability to add more storage to servers without downtime, to balance loads across multiple servers, or deploy a highly available database cluster, you can put what you learn in this course to good use.
After you complete the course you'll be able to deploy highly available web services that allow you to scale without downtime, add storage on the fly, and survive single points of failure. If you're like me and have to support what you deploy, you'll be able to start sleeping through the night with your high availability design. You also won't have to worry about painting yourself into a corner as you'll be able to take what you've learned to grow your infrastructure and support an increasing number of users.
