So in my new gig, one of my first goals is to standardize our organization on Drupal. We’ve got a few folks who know a bit of Drupal on staff, Drupal has a huge community (I’m at the Drupal SF meetup now, in fact), and it’s just generally useful to know more Drupal.
What I really want is a persistent Drupal image on EC2. I just want to fire up a Drupal image, make some changes, snapshot those changes to EBS, and so on and so on. Can’t be bad, right?
Of course, my first step was to Google “persistent Drupal EC2”.
Link number one: WorkHabit. Cool, they’ve got a Drupal AMI ready to go! Lemme read down…
“The AMI includes a full LAMP stack for Drupal, based on Fedora Core 8 Linux!”
NO! NO! NOOOOOOOOOO!
Guess it’s time to start attending the Cloud SIG meetings again. I get the feeling that Fedora 8 is going to be out there in Amazon for a long, long time.
