Stop asking who’s using what! The checkt Slack bot can help you find out if a resource is available and check it out so everyone knows who has what.

This looks great for those that are not for whatever reason running unlimited staging envs. Sometimes, it’s just not feasible or high up on the prio list to get to it… nice stop gap.

heh. we’re so tired of the ancient pkg versions in RHEL repos, our secret hope is that ibm does destroy them, and in turn drive the govt to finally start authorizing ubuntu

Are there any real technology gains with getting RH I wonder, sure they get massive government contracts world wide and an “in”, into pushing them into their cloud which would otherwise be hard to do.

does anybody have some ideas how to have a secondary storage solution for the stuff stored on Github? At this moment Github can be the major single point of failure for many processes…

Same for Dockerhub (private registries as a solution, but not always, again…)

GitLab has an automatic replication mode you can use to setup regular offsite backups

One of our customers uses this

To be clear, you can replicate from GitHub to GitLab or pretty much any git server

@Erik Osterman (Cloud Posse) thank you for the suggestion, it seems like a possible solution, but need to check if it works for the common Gitlab license and not only for EE, though some custom scripts could be used as well…

Erik Osterman (Cloud Posse) avatar
Erik Osterman (Cloud Posse)

yea - I don’t think they are on enterprise, but could be mistaken. @Igor Rodionov do you know?

loren avatar

could do a webhook based solution… push to github, trigger webhook, <function to pull repo and push to alt host>

tolstikov avatar
tolstikov

I’d like to have some turn-key solution, e.g, just put a list of repos in the config file and let the script to do everything else…

Seems like an idea for the hobby project

tolstikov avatar

and be able to switch all the processes to another set of repos by demand (in ideal world)

Replicating and Automating Sync-Ups for a Repository with AWS CodeCommit | Amazon Web Services attachment image

by Chenwei (Cherry) Zhou, Software Development Engineer   Many of our customers have expressed interest in the following scenarios: Backing up or replicating an AWS CodeCommit repository to another AWS region.

Was just looking at this… Even though we use bitbucket… Github’s folly got them thinking it might be best to do more to back up our code and have it be available even if bitbucket wouldn’t be. Easy to forget that our repositories can be a SPF as well.

As technical users, I am sure we all ran our own smtp/imap/twig setups back in ‘96 on our stampede Linux servers in the basement of our parents home, but interesting to see someone trying to bring it back for the masses.

@Erik Osterman (Cloud Posse) Yikes, I was thinking the same thing. I wonder what value they get from such a test. Perhaps they get delivery confirmation receipts from the carriers and can measure impact?
