Hello everyone, I would like to start using a cloud service to host my projects, which are web applications. If anyone has enough experience with Microsoft Azure, Amazon Web Services (AWS) or Google Cloud Platform, I would like to know which of these is most recommended to use, depending on the features they have or how used they are. Thank you so much.

Does anyone have any advice or guidance on how to create a Lucee instance in the Amazon Web Service cloud? I'm a many years CF dev but I have zero experience working with cloud services and I'm trying to roll my own on this one. I have a traditional ACF hosting arrangement I desperately need to migrate from (their support has recently evaporated and it's causing my application performance nightmares) and my app will need to be in the cloud for scalability considerations so I'm figuring now is the best time to make the move. My current setup is ACF with a MSSQL backend and I think I'd like to migrate that to a Lucee/MySQL or Amazon Aurora setup.

Any pointers would be most welcome. Thanks in advance!
