AWS Architecture

Been using HS now for the past decade on prem in two companies. Since we are moving almost everything else to AWS is there a set of best practices / reference architecture on the services you guys use?

Thinking of fargate or elastic beanstalk for compute, and S3 for storage?

was also thinking if the license allows to load balance a couple web servers and split off an instance to handle the scheduled tasks and mail checking.

Any guidance is appreciated as we start to explore the next steps.
