The summer is officially over, and the days are getting shorter. At NETWAYS we are happy to have eight(!) new apprentices in the office! And since our team has a lot to teach, let`s start with one of our “old” trainees, teaching us something very useful!

Consultants consulting

Out of sheer curiosity Philipp learnt the advantages of a “hot backup” versus a “cold” or offline backup. Read about his hot backup with the tool Xtrabackup by Percona in Hot Backups mittels Xtrabackup.
Thilo told us why you should be Managing your Ansible Environment with Galaxy. Avoid a messy configuration and let Galaxy structure your environment. How do you combine Elastic Stack and Ansible? Thomas tried it in Logstash automatisiert ausrollen? Freilich!

Darf es ein wenig Umweltüberwachung sein? As Christian explained, our shop offers monitoring systems from various producers. Which one is the right system for your needs?
