Does anyone have any advice or guidance on how to create a Lucee instance in the Amazon Web Service cloud? I'm a many years CF dev but I have zero experience working with cloud services and I'm trying to roll my own on this one. I have a traditional ACF hosting arrangement I desperately need to migrate from (their support has recently evaporated and it's causing my application performance nightmares) and my app will need to be in the cloud for scalability considerations so I'm figuring now is the best time to make the move. My current setup is ACF with a MSSQL backend and I think I'd like to migrate that to a Lucee/MySQL or Amazon Aurora setup.

Any pointers would be most welcome. Thanks in advance!
