This document describes several approaches for deploying Verdaccio in the AWS cloud.
Clients | | (HTTPS) v Application Load Balancer | | (HTTP) v EC2 Auto Scaling Group (Amazon Linux 2) Docker image (Verdaccio) | | (NFS) v Elastic File System
Architecture notes: * Deploy this stack into the region closest to your users for maximum performance. * We use an auto scaling group primarily for self-healing. The system requirements of Verdaccio are pretty low, so it's unlikely you'll need multiple instances to handle traffic load. * Because Amazon Linux 2 doesn't include Node, we run Verdaccio as a Docker image rather than natively on the instance. This is faster and more secure than relying on third party package sources for Node. * Elastic File System is cheap and stateful, and works across AZs. An alternative would be the third-party S3 storage plugin. * For backup, use AWS Backup
Estimated monthly cost for a small installation (in us-east-1): * ALB (1 LCU average): $22.265/mo * EC2 (t3.nano): $3.796/mo * EBS (8gb): $0.80/mo * EFS (5gb): $1.5/mo * Data transfer: (10gb): $0.9/mo * TOTAL: Under $30/mo
You can deploy Verdaccio as a task with an ECS Volume for persistent storage.
Note: Fargate doesn't support persistent volumes, so you have to use the S3 storage plugin.
