Automated deployment of software - whether it’s new packages, patches, or configuration changes - is a fact of life in modern software development and management. Automated infrastructure, however, is a newer set of tools and processes. With Amazon EKS and Pulumi, Tag1 is tackling these challenges to meet the needs of Fortune 500 customers.

Today’s business reality is nearly every company needs at least one website in order to be successful in their business. As organizations get larger, the number of websites companies need also increases. From Human Resources, to sales support, to customer service and support, different groups in your organization may have some similar needs, but different access levels.

One of the annoying things about web hosting is managing certificates - nobody wants to spend time creating Certificate Signing Requests and checking emails for expiry notices. They expire, and domains change and become invalid, leaving a system administrator to communicate with a Certificate Authority (CA) to get new certificates and install them on the servers that need them. This manual process is tiring, boring, and has the potential to bring downtime to your services.

Recently, we were working with one of our clients to diagnose high load on their web servers. We traced the cause of the load to an opcache_reset() call used after code deploys as a way of preventing the PHP OpCache from overfilling as new code was deployed to the servers. The issue was due to (and resolved by)bug #72590, but troubleshooting the problem prompted us to look at ways to non-intrusively restart PHP-FPM. While it...
