Make a plan and budget for the project described below. The budget has to include both the set-up cost AND the monthly operating cost. The plan will include ALL the steps needed to complete the project.
"Setup an Open edX website on my Amazon EC2 account. Test and install the template scripts I will provide for you. The website will have to work in high availability on the web layer and should be able to come back from a database malfunction within 2 hours. You will have to make sure that a single webserver malfunction doesn't disrupt service.
We will display several video lessons on the website, and thus I need help deciding where to store them (same website? a CDN? Youtube?). The platform load will be 20 concurrent video streams, and 40 concurrent users browsing the site.
The project phases are:
- Provide a recommendation regarding where to store the videos
- Setup the webservers and database on EC2, and also configure a domain to point to the platform.
- Test the template and provide feedback. I will work with the developer to solve the bugs.
- Install the template
- Test the platform against a malfunction: a single webserver goes down, database goes down. Provide a simple manual on how to restore the service on such events."
