Or, perhaps, berries and beagles and boxen, oh my!
The new hardware has begun arriving. And I have figured out the issue I was experiencing with the experimental set-up. So, this weekend is the beginning of the server reno project.
What that means is the family server – this one – is going to be taken off-line. And, hopefully in short order, another server will be put up in its stead. That server will not have the complete set of services. But, slowly, we will restore the current suite of websites, and hopefully one or two additional tools.
The current plan starts with testing the BeagleBone Black in the rôle of reverse proxy; I am not sure how to stress test this yet, but hopefully it will handle the workload without issues. If not, one of the RPi 3B+ units will be pressed into the job.
Once I have a working front server I can spread the tasks between the various upstream cpus based on the kind of load expected. Most of the things we have had in the past will return again, our family Cloud, genealogy project, and so on.
There will likely be some changes, too. The blog is going to migrate to a pubhub-enabled platform. A related microblogging platform is planned, as well as current upgrades to our invisible url shortener (currently here, but with an incomplete CRUD api there is literally nothing to be seen.)
So, do not expect to find anything here. At least, not as of tomorrow. Hopeto see you beyond the blue event horizon!
