It’s been a bit quiet around here, but since I joined Culture Foundry I’ve been writing over on their site more. I’ve written on a number of topics, but this one about how to move files between different servers in order to scale a traditional CMS application horizontally, is one of my favs:
Compared to the other methods of syncing files, this works well with non cloud native applications. It also has the virtue of using old tested tools. You can use this system on prem or in the cloud, anywhere with SSH and rsync. This system works well with large numbers of small objects because rsync can be configured to only push new objects.
I’ll be splitting my blogging time between this site and the Culture Foundry site in the future. See you there.
