How we use SCSS/CSS at Fuga Cloud

Last summer, we at Fuga Cloud started rethinking the way we approach writing our CSS. Before this point, we were still using vanilla CSS. This was starting to become more of a problem with every feature we rolled out. So when I started working here, my first assignment was to implement SCSS following the ITCSS methodology. This enabled us to do two things: SCSS enabled us to write SCSS in a component-like way ITCSS forced us to write our CSS in a logical order We chose Gulp to compile our SCSS and to automate some other stuff such as minification and sourcemaps etc.

Bringing data to the mortals again with Prometheus and it's sidekick Telegraf

There I am again, talking about server monitors. However, I personally think this one is a lot more exciting. Prometheus is a server monitoring tool that collects data about the hosts it monitors, allowing you to spot trends and interesting data passing by. And i don’t mean collecting data in a Facebook way, but in a way that’s actually beneficial to both customer and provider. It collects data about disk usage, CPU usage and all the stuff that interests us techies.

Eerste maand bij Fuga Cloud
Introductie Fuga OpenStack Agile

Eerste maand bij Fuga Cloud

Vanaf begin oktober ben ik werkzaam bij Fuga Cloud. Ik ben net dit jaar afgestudeerd voor mijn opleiding Toegepaste Wiskunde. Omdat ik geen ICT opleiding heb gevolgd was het in het begin veel bijleren over basisbegrippen, ook was Linux vrij nieuw voor mij. Dit heb ik me in de eerste weken eigen proberen te maken. De eerste twee weken stonden ook in het teken van het hele bedrijf leren kennen, zoals de verschillen tussen Cyso, SQR en Fuga Cloud.
Server Monitoring In The Dark Ages

Server Monitoring In The Dark Ages

A common request for hosting companies is the guarantee of uptime on hosts and services. Naturally, this is very hard to guarantee, because servers go down in the middle of the night, and without good reason. So what are you going to do? Sit there all night, visit the websites to confirm they’re working? Ping the servers all night long, checking for downtime? Luckily tools exist to monitor your hosts, and today I’ll write a bit about our journey integrating one of them, Nagios into our preferred communications channel - slack.

How to stabilize Calico's IP-in-IP tunnels in virtual environments

When you work with bleeding edge technology you can expect the unexpected As most of us know software is never without bugs and due to technical diversity most of us won’t be able to fix these bugs ourselves. Instead we can develop and deploy workarounds while we wait for specialists to release a fix. In this post I’d like to share how we resolved a connectivity issue between pods in our Kubernetes cluster due to a tunnelling issue in Calico.
