Tools We Use
“Linux is a Unix-like and POSIX-compliant computer operating system assembled under the model of free and open source software development and distribution.” It’s also the de-facto operating system of the Internet, powering more web sites than any other operating system. We have almost three decades of experience with Linux as a web, database, file-serving, and computation platform including distributions such as Debian, Ubuntu, CentOS, Fedora, and RedHat Enterprise Linux.
“The world’s most popular open-source database”. We have been using MySQL for over 14 years. We have worked on installations including thousands of MySQL databases and tens of terabytes of data. We have familiarity with database design, optimization, replication, and disaster recovery best practices.
Amazon Web Services
“Amazon Web Services (AWS) delivers a set of services that together form a reliable, scalable, and inexpensive computing platform ‘in the cloud’.” We’ve been using Amazon Web Services resources for over four years and have expertise in the following areas: EC2, Route53, CloudFormation, CloudFront, S3, ElastiCache, RDS, and IAM.
We have extensive experience using Elasticsearch to provide rich data exploration features in web applications and APIs. Previous projects have utilized the full breadth of Elasticsearch features, including custom analyzers, facets and aggregations, replication, and performance tuning.
Puppet is a configuration management system that allows you to define the state of your IT infrastructure, then automatically enforces the correct state. Whether you're managing just a few servers or thousands of physical and virtual machines, Puppet automates tasks that sysadmins often do manually, freeing up time and mental space so sysadmins can work on the projects that deliver greater business value.
