Software solutions

  • Nginx—Web server using PHP-FPM. There is one instance with multiple workers.

  • GlusterFS—File server for managing all static file deployments and synchronization with four directory mounts:

    • var
    • pub/media
    • pub/static
    • app/etc
  • Redis—One server per VM with only one active and the other two as replicas.

  • Elasticsearch—Search for Adobe Commerce version 2.2.x and later.

  • Galera—Database cluster with one MariaDB MySQL database per node with an auto-increment setting of three for unique IDs across every database.

Features and benefits

  • With three dedicated instances in a VPC, there is an elastic load balancer across three separate availability zones or data centers.

  • Higher resiliency is provided against events that may cause a single instance to fail. For example, an outage of an entire AWS availability zone or data center.

  • Zero downtime scaling across the entire stack, including web, caching, search, and database, in less than 15 minutes.
