A little backstory
We have been using Amazon Web Services Platform since we moved from our own servers back in 2011. It has come a long way since then including adding Virtual Private Cloud, a number of new instance types, Aurora, CodeDeploy, and a plethora of other services (most of which we do not have a use for right now). Prior to November 2016, the public marketing site (what sits on tave.com root domain) and the application (manager and client access) were all in the same code base sitting on top of ElasticBeanstalk in EC2-classic, along with Memcached on ElastiCache and MySQL on top of RDS. ElasticBeanstalk handled our provisioning and deployment and overall it served us well.
