What is the minimum AWS setup to start with Snowplow?


#1

Hi,

I want to scale AWS automaticly when traffic increases. What is the minimum AWS setup to start with Snowplow?
Traffic is at this moment low (750-1000 events a month).

In the docs i read you need atleast a M1 instance, but this is a previous generation instance type (doesn’t excist anymore) https://aws.amazon.com/ec2/instance-types/.

Thanks in advance.

Hi @Something - each of the sub-systems of Snowplow is horizontally scalable, and with most of these you can choose an appropriate instance type as you say.

You have assigned your question to the category of storage targets, but I wonder if your question is specifically about event collection.

Can you clarify which Snowplow sub-system you are asking about?
