Currently, we are running our WP based website at dedicated OVH web hosting with the highest performance. Due to fact that traffic at our website continuously grows, we are about to migrate to the dedicated solution and here is where my doubts come.
While searching for WP HA tutorials I found 2 main approaches - self hosted VPS (with own instance of MySQL and Apache) or predefined hosting using images for WP like AWS or Docker.
Which solutions will be performing better? Of course, the question is a bit generic therefore let's assume that money is not a subject so we could invest in both - high AWS plan as well as strong VPS machines.
And second question for those who use AWS - how reliable is this solution? Do you encounter downtimes? Our monitoring shows that OVH is having issues every few days for 10-15 mins.
