Integration of Netlify and Amazon EC2


Netlify is a hosting service for static websites. It provides a user interface to set up a website, and then deploys the website with continuous integration from the user’s GitHub repository. When the user pushes updates to their GitHub repository, Netlify automatically rebuilds the website and re-deploys it to the user’s web host. It provides a web terminal so that users can see the content of their website; a function called “Build Now” allows users to build their websites without publishing immediately, if they wish.

Netlify also provides a command line interface that allows users to deploy websites without using the user interface. It supports Jekyll, Hugo, Gatsby, and static HTML files.

Netlify is built on top of Amazon Web Services (AWS), specifically AWS Lambda, Amazon CloudFront and Amazon S3, and has an open-source top for deploying sites called Zeit Now.

Amazon EC2

Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2. is a web service that provides resizable compute capacity in the cloud. The service, launched in 2006, is generally considered the first cloud computing platform offered commercially. As of 2016, Amazon Web Services provides a highly available computing infrastructure platform in the Internet cloud that supports an extensive range of services for compute, storage and networking. It offers more than 90 distinct services for compute and storage and also supports integration with other AWS services such as S3, SimpleDB, and Elastic Load Balancing. All services are managed through AWS Management Conspe, Ajax-based APIs or command line tops. You can configure the level of access to each service while you sign up. Amazon charges on a per-usage basis. Amazon has data centers across Asia, Europe and North America.

Integration of Netlify and Amazon EC2

When you integrate Netlify and Amazon EC2 together, you can use Netlify to deploy your static website automatically whenever you push changes to your GitHub repository. It will create an instance on EC2 and deploy your site to it with one push of a button. Once it is deployed, it will start building the site when you push new changes, caching them so that any visitor who comes to the site only needs to wait for the first request for the files to download. Whenever you update something on your site, Netlify immediately redeploys your files to your static site.

Benefits of Integration of Netlify and Amazon EC2

If your AWS instance goes down because of a power failure or other outage, you won't lose your site; You can use the Build Now function in Netlify so that you can deploy your site before you publish it; even if there are already people on your site, you can bring them over to the new version without losing any of their comments.
