AWS and STRATUS
Currently, STRATUS is hosted on Amazon Web Services (AWS); AWS is the only cloud provider we are using, although we are continually investigating and testing other providers to see how well they may be able to support STRATUS.
The important consideration is that you are not required to do any direct management of the AWS environments used. In other words, you get the full benefit and power of a global cloud services infrastructure without any intervention or configuration. Our STRATUS system works on top of AWS to give you the highest performing technology stack for hosting Magento in a cloud environment.
EC2 is the flagship product of AWS and provides the raw hardware needed to run STRATUS. The underlying physical nodes for all STRATUS environments are EC2 instances. The micro-services running your environment run on EC2 instances, as well.
All MageMojo STRATUS environments include the Amazon CloudFront Content Delivery Network (CDN). Traffic for all environments route through a CloudFront distribution. Static assets are then cached for improved delivery speed.
MageMojo manages how the CDN manages assets. No configuration on your part is required.
Amazon Simple Email Service
Amazon Simple Email Service (SES) is included with your Mojo STRATUS environment. Domains added to an environment via the STRATUS URLs List are individually validated with SES. For a domain to be validated requires use of our Route 53 solution. If you wish, you may use your own mail-servers. See STRATUS Nameservers for more on DNS and email configurations.
