Can you configure instances of an EC2-Classic beanstalk app to communicate with instances inside a VPC?

Ok. So just tried to create a new RDS instance for development using a t2 instance and it tells me I have to use VPC! Why? I didn't a week ago or so. I still don't need to if I use the more expensive m1 instance types.

I don't want to have to learn and configure a VPC (I'm no network engineer) just to take advantage of an RDS instance. This is very frustrating!

Well for my set-up I don't have a load balancer for the EC2 instance inside the VPC. If you have your RDS and EC2 instances inside your VPC and you want to add the EC2 instance to a load balancer outside of the VPC you might be able to achieve this by enabling the 'Classic Link' -> 'Link to VPC' on the load balancer but I've never done it myself so I'm not sure.

Looking for a CRM system that I could host on aws and who's database was a RDS instance that I could query by other internal systems.

I found these on the aws market place:
https://aws.amazon.com/marketplace/search?page=2&category=2649339011

Has anyone any any experience/recommendations for this sort of setup?

Thanks

How do people backup their Dynamo data? I know dynamo is a pretty redundant storage platform but its always good to have a snapshot in case the data gets mangled by and errant update script.

I have configured AWS Data Pipelines for each of my dynamo tables to backup to an S3 bucket which works fine.

The cost however is quite large as spinning up a pipeline involves 2 or 3 large instances which you are charged rounded up to the hour (so you pay an hour for a 5 min backup). Times this by the number of tables and over a month is expensive!

I know you can do a lot more complex operations in a AWS Data Pipeline so what I'm wondering is can you configure one pipeline to backup all your tables in one go (and so reduce costs)?

Excellent! I see that was from a Senior Dev at AWS.  Great to see that level of engagement.

We heard this in our hotel room in Majorca this week while getting ready to go out, it's the second time I've heard this on an ad, the first one was a tv series trailer, but can't remember which one!

Are they really going to let Mr. Wall back into the country after he traitorously betrayed Her Britannic Majesty and took out US citizenship???
