We have several virtual machines on which we run our platform and keep Icinga development going. This platform uses a wide range of tools like WordPress, Git, Redmine, Confluence, Jenkins and many, many more.
Over the last couple of months we have invested a lot of time in developing and benchmarking Icinga 2 on different platforms to makes sure that it runs like you would expect it to. So we asked some friends for help. Lucky for us, they came straight to our aid.
Thomas-Krenn.AG produces customised, high-quality servers made in Germany. For our development and testing environment, they donated a brand new server*, helping us continue to improve the quality and performance of Icinga 1.x and Icinga 2 and thereby helping you and your monitoring environment.
So, to Thomas Krenn we say THANK YOU VERY MUCH and can now recommend their hardware based on experience :)
