This gives me a service discovery layer (Consul), moves the scheduler Sidekiq job off of the www node, and provides a platform for various background jobs to run automatically.
Now I can move www to an autoscale group.
@aurynn ooh is your architecture documented at all? Mine is very simple but I might like to alter it a bit.
@aurynn complex and cloud kinda go together. Overkill is fine because it often turns out you needed it.
@daedalus This is true.
Unfortunately, cloud-overkill also means that runtime costs are higher than people expect.
@aurynn Ah. Yes there is that. I was just looking at some of mine yesterday. But I get much better uptimes and bandwidth so the expense it worth it, I feel.
