Database back end for eCommerce implementation at Amazon EC2

This client decided to deploy their production enviornment to the cloud using the Amazon offering in conjunction with Rightscale. Our role was to support the backend database using mySql. This was a new experience for us working in a virtual machine domain. We learned quickly about Amazon machine images, Rightscale templates, and all of the new techology that is the cloud. We were able to deploy a mySql server with a replica in time for the project launch despite the learning curve.
