Many hours of research, trial and error went into choosing the tech platforms that now make the foundation our service offering.
In 2018, it has never been easier to start a business thanks to tools and services like these!
We use Vultr as our IaaS provider. Thanks to Vultr we don’t have to worry about managing hardware, datacenters, bandwidth, or IP address allocations. Vultr’s API made it easy for us to create servers automatically with our Python scripts.
We use Zabbix to monitor resources and uptime on all of our servers. We can spot and fix problems with server resources before they cause downtime, and configured custom alerts which trigger emails when something urgent comes up that we should look into right away.
All of our servers use Cloudflare for DNS. Records are created and deleted automatically by our Python scripts by using the API. Cloudflare ensures fast load times, and can help with DDoS protection if needed.
