Cloud Stacks Defined

A cloud stack is a collection of services and resources in your Amazon Web Services (AWS) account which holds all of the infrastructure needed to run your Moodle site. 

A stack commonly consists of:

  • Security groups

  • Network file system

  • EC2 web server instance

  • RDS database instance

  • Load balancer

  • TLS (SSL) security certificates

There can be many more services and resources added to any given stack, so the list above is meant to provide a basic example for an average stack.
