Tech Stack Highlights
Postgres & Redis – All this is backed up by RDS instances in AWS running PostgresDB. We heavily use Redis and SOLR for data caching and queue management.
Flask/Python – The rest of our apps and services – Email systems, data analysis, internal tools – all run in Python based Flask/Flask-Restless environments.
ELK – Our logging system is run as an Elasticsearch-Logstash-Kibana stack utilizing Filebeat and Logspout for streaming the log output. From this stack we’ve also created a comprehensive Technical SEO Dashboard where we can monitor crawlers and their activity and measure the cause & effect on new site features.
DevOps – Our apps are deployed using Docker Swarm orchestration via Ansible scripts for independence from specific cloud providers. We’ve built a structure with Docker in a Blue/Green deployment methodology so there is zero downtime when releasing code updates. The system is front ended with Jenkins-CI for automated execution of Unit/Integration/Acceptance test suites.
