Server System Upgrades and DevOps Configuration Management
With applications that continue to run for years, servers eventually need updates and maintenance. We recently updated and reconfigured some of the cloud infrastructure for our long-time client SpotCrime, a location-specific crime aggregator. SpotCrime has evolved since 2008 into a polyglot system, using many languages, unified through DevOps. For the most recent update, we created server configuration playbooks with Ansible, and reconfigured some of the application servers to separate responsibilities for high volume low frequency tasks, improving performance and infrastructure maintainability.
