Apache, Nginx, and other web tools

Our technology stack.

It is difficult to imagine the Internet without web servers. They allow you to browse websites, fill out forms and use other online services. Web servers, depending on the configuration, can perform various functions in the architecture of websites. Regardless of the above, their configuration affects the performance and speed of access to the services.

The most popular web servers include Apache, Nginx, and IIS, but there are also many new solutions, sometimes dedicated to other specific technologies. Often, web servers are additionally supported by additional technologies that are designed to further accelerate the service by caching content (e.g. Varnish or CDN services) or spreading traffic among groups of web servers (e.g. HAProxy). Many of these technologies are also available as turnkey services in a cloud environment.

Other Technologies

Application development in serverless technologies

When building serverless solutions in a cloud environment on a daily basis, we use Python and Go languages. Serverless services allow you to use cloud resources in the most optimal way so you can pay only for what you use (pay-as-you-go) by getting rid of performance limitations.

CI / CD processes

The Continuous Integration and Continuous Delivery tools allow building a process of uninterrupted software deployment in the server environment. Well-prepared systems make it possible to test and implement even several thousand changes a day in a way that is unnoticeable to the customer. There are various CI/CD tools available on the market today, the choice of which depends on many factors.

Kafka and streaming/queuing systems

Streaming and queuing systems are used to exchange information between different elements of the IT system. They are especially helpful in microservice environments that use publishing and subscribing mechanisms to ensure that messages reach their recipients. Queuing systems can also be used to prevent message loss, which happens when messages end up on highly loaded back-end services.

Databases, data storage and analysis

Companies collect and process huge amounts of information. The method of data storage, speed of access and possibility of making analyses are essential for business development. Databases have evolved over the years. To obtain the best results, we must carefully select the technology depending on the amount and growth of data, access time, or their structure.

Ansible, automation and system orchestration

Automation and system orchestration tools support the management of server groups, especially when IT environments use automatic scaling mechanisms. Automation and orchestration tools will ensure consistency of environments and their configuration, so you can focus on your business.

Terraform and Infrastructure as a Code

A professional approach to building IT environments requires the use of tools that describe the technical infrastructure as a code. It allows us to quickly build repetitive environments and there run applications for development and production purposes. We are able to maintain consistency of environments and order, which is difficult to achieve when environments are built and modified manually.

Kubernetes, Docker and other technologies related to containerization

Containers with a set of tools for their management and application deployment are an indispensable element used to build modern microservice environments. Compared to monolithic large applications, microservice environments are more reliable as well as easier to develop and scale.

Cloud environment and cloud technologies

Cloud environment  is an infrastructure distributed all over the world that provides access to IT services under the pay-as-you-go model. Cloud environment enables rapid development of applications using ready-made solutions. They guarantee the highest security standards and automatic adaptation of resources to customer needs. For many companies, this solution is one of the most important factors contributing to their success.
