About a year ago, I started a new job with SignalVine as the person in charge of Operations.While I strive to give the engineering team the tools that they need to properly manage our production systems, its my responsibility to keep all of the components of our application up and running. In the last year, Iʼve used quite a few different tools to make running our application a pleasant experience. Iʼll be covering a wide variaty of things, from databases to DevOps tools. Some of these things have worked well for me, others have not.
Ansible- My Configuration management tool of choice.
