Security is one of the elements of infrastructure configuration, which is very often overlooked. Often administrators focus on delivering functionality and fulfilling requirements, while not caring about securing the infrastructure against attacks, believing that it's probably going to be fine. However, no sophisticated mechanisms and solutions are needed to ensure basic security... But let us start from the beginning.
Websites play an increasingly important role on the Internet, sometimes even generating huge profits. Even the smallest interruptions in their operation can cause losses amounting to hundreds or even thousands of dollars. That is why at Droptica we attach great importance to ensuring that our services are as reliable as possible. How? Thanks to solutions that guarantee high availability, offered by Amazon Web Services.
At Droptica, a very important role is played by the servers, where we host websites and applications developed by us. By implementing Infrastructure as Code in our company, we have managed to increase the stability and availability of services and optimise the time necessary to implement changes in the infrastructure. Automatic server management has greatly simplified several of our processes.
