2nd AMIMOTO: WordPress + AWS Singapore

We’d like to thank the participants of the 2nd AMIMOTO: WordPress + AWS Singapore meetup held on 22 October 2015.
The event aims to share to participants about WordPress, AWS, what you can do with WordPress on AWS and how to self-host your site with AMIMOTO HHVM.

AMIMOTO is a pre-configured OS & virtual app software that is a combination of HHVM, Nginx & Reverse Proxy Cache, allowing users to control it with Nginx Cache Controller GUI (plugin).

Highly Scalable
AMIMOTO makes use of EC2 (Elastic Compute Cloud), which makes it easy to scale up and down to meet various traffic demands.

Friendly for users of all tech levels
AMIMOTO can be launched with 1-click via AWS Marketplace making it friendly for users.
With git and WP-CLI installed, it’s also WordPress-developer friendly.

High Performance

Issue: Sudden traffic increase is unpredictable and there are times that users end up with either too much or too little resources.

Solution: With Amazon EC2 scalable capacity, it stops users from guessing how much resources they really need.


Large-scale Media Site

Issue: Unexpected peaks, scalability issues, high PV

Solution: Autoscaling is for apps with stable demand patterns & different usage daily, weekly.
On high demand, it automatically increases the number of EC2 instances to maintain performance.


Huge Enterprise Site

Issue: has to be multisite, multilingual and high speed

Solution: 1 AMIMOTO instance can have multiple WordPress installs. With WordPress, users can install their preferred multilingual plugins and for speed issue there are pre-installed performance plugins such as NGINX Cache Controller.

News Site

Issue: Some issues of news sites include having thousands of posts, multiple authors and sudden traffic surge.

Solution: With WordPress, users can manage multiple users and assign access levels and capabilities to each user.

Rublon Partners with DigitalCube & AMIMOTO

Every second, malicious hackers from around the world try to take over corporate services and steal confidential data.

If you have employees accessing online company resources, you are at risk. Implementing a password policy is not enough. Passwords will be too easy, get stolen, written down and reused all over the Internet.

When you have no control over your employee’s passwords, then you have no control over who really accesses your resources.


Here in DigitalCube and AMIMOTO, security is one of our top priorities that’s why we partnered up with Rublon, the best two-factor authentication platform for web-based businesses.


With Rublon as our partner, your web experience with DigitalCube and AMIMOTO is even better and more secure.

Your Security Matters to Us

Starting today, when you install your WordPress Powered by AMIMOTO (HHVM, HVM, PVM or RHEL version), Rublon Account Security: Two-Factor Auth+ plugin is already pre-installed for you.

Rublon is available in various languages including Japanese. It’s also easy to use; just activate the plugin and when you login to your WordPress site, simply confirm your identity (via email or phone) and that’s it – instant security.
