Managing workloads on Nomad has never been easier with the help of a custom ansible module I wrote for this purpose. Includes many cool features like a fancy colored

Choosing a secure file syncing application has never been easier. After evaluating a variety of options such Dropbox, OwnCloud, and Seafile for over 5 years, the journey is finally over. I have found the best option - Syncthing. Let me explain why you should consider it.
Ansible has many powerful modules. One of which is called uri which is capable of sending any kind of
HTTP request. Using this module, it is fairly simple to allow ansible to intelligently talk to a REST API. This will come in handy during for automation of the sensu monitoring docker infrastructure I am currently working on.
Nginx is a great web server which offers really high performance with very little resource consumption. This makes it ideal for docker containers, small embedded devices, or even just dealing with a ton of connections. I also often use Nginx’s powerful proxy capabilities. Nginx is one of those applications I use quite often, pretty much for anything related to
http(s). Having said that, it becomes very important for me to be able to deploy this in a secure manner.
Migrations are a common part of being a Virtualization Admin. Most commonly you will be asked to perform P2V (physical to virtual). However, there are times when you will have to migrate between virtual platforms.
