Deploying a Future Proof Traffic Router Based on OpenResty

March 24, 2017 - 6:00PM

Thousands of applications are hosted on Scalingo, they can be deployed, restarted or scaled at any time. Each of these operations impacts the internal topology of our infrastructure. Traffic routers handle the incoming requests and route them dynamically into the infrastructure. Since the beginning, we relied on Nginx to power these servers. With our growth, this solution became unsatisfying in terms of performance, reliability and flexibility, restraining the implementation of new features. We needed to find a way to improve or replace this piece of software to keep growing. In this article, we offer you a travel in the depths of Scalingo infrastructure, telling you how we ended up using OpenResty.

Free and automatic Let's Encrypt SSL certificate for all custom domains

December 24, 2016 - 12:00AM

The elves at Scalingo have been working hard to end the year 2016 in beauty. The gift they left at the foot of the Christmas tree is a wonderful Let’s Encrypt certificate for all your custom domains! TLS Certificates are mandatory to ensure your applications can be accessed through HTTPS, hence they make the web a safer place to live. Anyone listening on the network would only get some encrypted-scrambled data, nothing readable.
