PTS 2018 - Day 1

I'm at the Perl Toolchain Summit 2018 in Oslo for a few days working with the MetaCPAN team. This is the 10th year of the summit (although confusingly the 11th actual summit!), and the 3rd year I've been able to attend.

My focus for day 1 has been making MetaCPAN front end and API more resilient and also to put together a what to do if site down and Disaster Recovery plan (day 2 I will be testing that DR plan).

I've setup our 2nd datacenter back to being a production ready cluster (of Elasticsearch). I added health checks and load balancing from Fastly (our CDN) to both the web front end (now using 4 nodes, 2 in each datacenter) and also setup our API (3 nodes in 1 datacenter as they all need to talk to the same elasticsearch). You can see what is running where in our domains document.

Now Github are running public projects you can see what MetaCPAN team are doing and have done

A huge thank you to the sponsors who make this possible:

NUUG Foundation, Teknologihuset,, cPanel, FastMail, Elastic,
ZipRecruiter, MaxMind, MongoDB, SureVoIP, Campus Explorer, Bytemark, Infinity Interactive, OpusVL, Eligo, Perl Services, Oetiker+Partner.
