re: Wondering what's the best AWS service for this VIEW POST

FULL DISCUSSION
 

Does it have to be in AWS? I’ve been looking for some low-maintenance/low-cost ways to host services as well. Currently our website is on the aws year-free tier, but I found out Google Cloud has a free forever tier on their EC2 equivalent. Also, if you want to go full auto-managed, services like heroku/back4app.com (some of which also offer a free tier) may be better suited.

 

Yes, I have other stuff in there and keeping things centralized is comfy. I forgot the free forever tier from GCP... I may take a look.
I checked with Heroku and other things remaining the same, it was more expensive.

Thanks!

How much more expensive? Because if it's a few dollars every month and you save days of configuration and headaches it might be worth it :)

Other options:

You are right. In this instance though it's now just a matter of pride, can't abandon because it's hard! :P

I checked again with GCP and I remember now why I left: the damn flexible vs standard environment. It's just not a good fit.

Besides, even if doesn't sound like it, I'm familiar with most AWS services. It's the DBMS that threw me off, but I'll just use EBS and DocumentDB.

Thanks for the help :)
