This Quick Start deploys WordPress High Availability by Bitnami, which includes WordPress with Amazon Aurora, in a highly available environment on AWS in about 40 minutes.

WordPress is a web publishing platform for building blogs and websites. It can be customized via a wide selection of themes, extensions, and plugins. WordPress High Availability by Bitnami installs the WordPress application on multiple servers (Amazon EC2 instances) in the AWS Cloud for high performance and availability. It also sets up an Amazon Aurora relational database to help you reduce costs, simplify configuration tasks, and scale with ease. The database and WordPress application are set up on different EC2 instances to help improve security and access control.

This Quick Start is for IT infrastructure architects, administrators, and DevOps professionals who are planning to implement or extend their WordPress workloads on the AWS Cloud.
