We are building a product that runs both on-prem and on our Google Kubernetes Engine clusters, and I am working on building a monitoring solution.

Our app is dockerized and usually deployed using Kubernetes.

I am currently looking into tools for centralized logging, but there is a catch. Some of our customers do not allow exporting the logs to our cloud solution; so basically, I am looking for a solution that will work for all 3 use cases:

  1. Cloud clusters

  2. On-prem which can report to our central cloud logging solution

  3. On-prem which can be only accessed locally

We are currently using GCP Logging since it's pretty easy to get started with, but if it does not answer our use case, we are fine with replacing it.

I was considering ELK, but in my experience, it can be pretty complicated to manage.

Are there other recommended solutions?

We are building a social media app, where users will post images, like their post, and make friends based on their interest. We are currently using Cloud Firestore and Firebase Realtime Database. We are looking for another database like Amazon DynamoDB; how much this decision can be efficient in terms of pricing and overhead?

MySQL
MSSQL

We are planning to migrate one of my applications from MSSQL to MySQL. Can someone help me with the version to select?. I have a strong inclination towards MySql 5.7. But, I see there are some standout features added in Mysql 8.0 like JSON_TABLE. Just wanted to know if the newer version has not compromised on its speed while giving out some add on features.

This week, we finally released NurseryPeople.com. In the end, I chose to provision our server on DigitalOcean. So far, I am SO happy with that decision. Although setting everything up was a challenge, and I learned a lot, DigitalOceans blogs helped in so many ways. I was able to set up nginx and the Laravel web app pretty smoothly. I am also using Buddy for deploying changes made in git, which is super awesome. All I have to do in order to deploy is push my code to my private repo, and buddy transfers everything over to DigitalOcean. So far, we haven't had any downtime and DigitalOceans prices are quite fair for the power under the hood.

PostgreSQL
Django
Flask

Hi All - I am currently developing an API in Flask for automating a few of my tasks. I am planning to use Django for consuming the Flask API and for displaying the results. The API will be used by my team as well, so I would like to enforce access controls based on the user logged in. For example, User A can consume the API, but User B can only see the results. Also, I am planning to enforce other controls, such as a user can consume a particular API only once per day. For the Database, I am planning to use PostgreSQL. Request you to share your insights and ideas. Thank you!
