While in a discussion with AWS support, I was advised the following,
Please note that adding RDS instance as a part of EB environment is great for test environments, however it isn’t ideal for a production environment because it ties the lifecycle of the database instance to the lifecycle of your application’s environment which means if you terminate the environment, the database instance will be terminated as well.
But, from the Metabase documentation, I see the following:
The Metabase team runs a number of production installations on AWS using Elastic Beanstalk and currently recommend it as the preferred choice for production deployments.
We are currently running Metabase in a Test environment and would want to move to Production as soon as possible. So, I would like to know the real-world best practices for running Metabase in production and scaling that 100+ users.
Thank you very much!
