DevOps / Linux System Administration

We can help you setup and maintain IT infrastructure in the cloud or onsite. Our focus areas are:

  • Setup and maintenance of infrastructure in popular public cloud environments like Amazon Web Services and Google Cloud Platform.

  • Setup and maintenance of servers in private cloud or on-premise locations.

We like the philosophy of infrastructure as code. Our favourite tool in this area is Ansible.

Typical Projects

  • Web servers. Apache or Nginx? Something else? We want to hear!
  • Database servers. MySQL, MariaDB or PostgreSQL. Setup and maintainance database servers to suit your needs.
  • Security. Server hardening using various systems - firewalls, SELinux, HIDS, etc
  • Monitoring. Design and impementation of modern monitoring solutions based on Prometheus or cloud provider provided monitoring tools for alerting, trending and cost-optimization.
  • Backup and recovery systems. Design and implement strategies for secure and efficient for DR.
  • Develpment environments. Creating development environments using systems like Vagrant.
  • Containers. Design, implementation and management of container systems.
  • Version Control. Setup tools for productive software development using tools like Git, Mercurial, Project Management Applications, etc.
  • CI/CD. Design and implement processes and tools for Continuous Delivery and Continuous Integration.
  • Email servers. Push button to install and configure an email server on your own server - cloud, dedicated, VPS or in-house. Using the email server, you can send and receive emails. You can send any type of emails you want - transactional, newsletter or to simply use a corporate e-email server. The email server has the features you expect in a typical setup.
    • POP, IMAP, SMTP, Webmail
    • Administrator's Control panel to manage the email server
    • Security. Support for DKIM, TLS, protection against brute-force attacks, etc. The system can additionally configure SELinux rules and configure host-based firewall.
    • Plays well with your existing server setup. You have full control over your email server. The system is flexible and comes with defaults that make sense.
    • Backed by professional consulting service to assist you with migrations, import & export and custom setups.
  • File and print servers. Leverage the power of Samba to build a cost-effective and robust file and print service for Microsoft Windows clients and integrate with a Microsoft Windows Server domain.

The list above should give you a fair idea about the type of services we offer. We are keen to take up other types of Linux system administration projects too.

For servers, we recommend CentOS Linux distribution. More commonly, distro. We could also work with other distros such as Debian or Ubuntu.
