Can I move from Amazon servers to another service?

Yes this is a big problem and it seems difficult to solve. I mentioned this here: It seems like Bubble is blocked in Russia

If your audience is only in Russia, so you are targeting only Russia, it seems you have a couple of options according to Bubble support:

We have contacted AWS to see if there are alternative data centers that are still accessible. Unfortunately, there is no clear solution provided by them at the moment.

Our next suggestion would be for you to set up a reverse proxy server in a non-AWS datacenter somewhere in Europe that is not blocked in Russia.

  • That server can be configured to forward traffic to the main cluster at its IP address, without modifying the headers.
  • Since it’s in Europe, the blocks should not affect the traffic between the main cluster and the proxy server.
  • You can then transfer your apps’ DNS to point at the proxy and it will look to the outside world as if your website is hosted in that datacenter rather than in AWS.
  • This method requires some technical knowledge and it’s outside the realm of services that we can help you with, but it’s probably only a couple hours of work for someone with a little technical knowledge.
  • You might also be able to achieve the same effect by using a commercial CDN, but you should confirm that
    a) the CDN is not blocked in Russia (CloudFlare, one of the most popular ones, may or may not be blocked)
    b) the CDN is just passing through traffic without modifying it, and that it has a long timeout configured, since header modification and short timeouts can cause issues with Bubble.

I have a question for you: do you have users in other locations than Russia? If so, are they in any way affected (performance wise) with using the cloudflare cdn?
