All new site (again)
So, looking back at the last post date, 2017, and 2015 before that, lets shed some light into the site. Things have progressed albeit slowly.
I’ve been busy with all kinds of things, hence why I mostly kept the radio “working as it is”. However, the site now runs new software. Both the “site” as well as the “radio” part. This will improve stability and performance. In fact quite a lot has changed.
First of all, I’ve embraced Kubernetes. TouHou.FM is not the only thing being ran on my server and I noticed that the shift to Kubernetes isn’t actually that bad. This has also changed my view on Docker and containers. I tried to containerize the radio in the past. I decided to drop the idea back then and go back to running it as native OS packages. However, after playing about with Kubernetes and noticing how easy it makes to manage infrastructure, scaling and also upgrading, a/b testing, I was sold. So over the next couple of months, I will be migrating nearly everything to containers, including the radio.
