Let’s look at the infrastructure that helps Kanka run. We’re publishing this article in tandem with Jay’s Setup article.
Hardware running our servers
First things first. Kanka runs primarily on five servers, all located in Germany (Nuremberg).
All our servers have 2 vCPUs, 4GB of RAM, and plenty of disk.
Thumbor – generating fast images
Our Thumbor works on generating optimised images for the web. These include making thumbnails of all shapes and sizes used by Kanka. These images are saved on the machine’s network attached disk, and gets reset every few months.
