We’re starting an Iguana implementation project where everything will live at AWS. This thread is a bit dated now, but I’d be most grateful if the original authors or any others can contribute some actual experience and lessons learned.
Right now we’re expecting to expose LLP/SSL connections and SFTP folders as input mechanisms. These inputs would occur via specific, authenticated ports; all other processing will take place within our local VPC at AWS and the data will feed into our analytical systems. Are there hazards to this very simple organization, other than the obvious single failure point, which we could in principle mitigate by a load-balancing interface in front (still at AWS) to distribute traffic to multiple Iguanas?
