Description

Context

Grupo ICA develops a completely customized solution for a private hospital.
The main module of the application is a medical history.
The architecture mixes Microsoft Windows and GNU/Linux across four different environments, and should support high availability. The team involved int the project exceeds 10 people.

Challenge

The focus is put on development, but the time to deliver the application comes, and deploy the application in production.
There’s no clear ownership of the devops role, and the deploy process is not fully detailed.

Solution

Two concepts are applied:
  • Tools
  • Procedures
A set of tools all based in docker containers are deployed, such as a Wiki page, a Password keeper, a Reverse Proxy and  an OpenLDAP server.
The purpose is having the required infrastructure to document all the technical information of the application, such as architecture, environments, passwords, procedures, etc.
The team is granted access to the required tools very quickly, centralizing the authentication in the OpenLDAP server.
Regarding processes the main contribution is an extensive documentation of the tools needed to join the team as a developer, and a detailed procedure of deploy and rollback of the application.
