Here's a quick update on my app stack — which is saving me a further $20/mo. A previous iteration of this stack, before it was Dockerised, has now been scrubbed off the Digital Ocean servers, and that app — inertialbox.com — is now running on the same 1 GB ten-dollar droplet.
There's ~300MB of RAM free which hasn't affected orchestration via Ansible. The nginx reverse-proxy is also now in place, and it's being treated as an 'app' as well. Since it's running in a container, it's just another service and therfore is fair to consider it in the same vein.
All the following containers are managed by
systemd, and I'm quite frankly loving it along with the
