End of an Era

After almost 2 years of hacking, configuring, fixing, uploading, manipulating, coding and moaning, my time working on the systems on Redsumo.com is drawing to a close.

It has sure been an adventure, overall a fun but challenging experience. I’ve had to reverse engineer someone else’s setup and code, work out new ways of managing a virtualised infrastructure, constantly adapt to the threats that face an online business and all within my usual day job.

In some ways I’m sad to see all my efforts literally disappear as the systems move to a dedicated hosting environment powered by cPanel. Sure I will keep my bits of code, and retain all the lessons I have learned, but it’s almost as if a part of me will be going forever over the next week or so!

Good luck to Redsumo.com in all their ventures in the future, and thank you for allowing me the experience of managing such a complex environment.
