This course will cover a DevOps project from its inception all the way to a finished product.

It is aimed at startups, small companies, and individuals who want to self-host their infrastructure.

We will combine multiple tools and services to produce a working, easily reproducible server which can support a small company.

We will cover:

  • Ansible - to configure the server and deploy services.
  • Let's Encrypt (certbot) - to obtain wildcard TLS certificate with auto renewal.
  • VPN (WireGuard) - for secure access to our services.
  • Docker with docker-compose - to easily deploy our applications and services.
  • MariaDB - MySQL fork.
  • LXC (Linux containers) - another virtualization technology.
  • iRedMail - mail server which we'll use to send and receive notifications.
  • Zulip - an open source chat and collaborative software which can be self-hosted (alternative to Slack or Microsoft Teams).
  • Traefik (reverse proxy and TLS termination proxy) with Docker and file providers - a single entry point for our services with automatic TLS certificates.
  • Pi-hole - ad blocking on DNS level.
  • Nextcloud - Email, calendar, documents, photos...It even has built-in code editor.
  • checkmk - monitoring solution.
  • Borg with borgmatic - backup solution.
  • GitLab - Git server, CI/CD, GitLab Container Registry, etc.
  • backup-checker - with this project we will showcase everything we've created!
  • We'll create a Python program which will compare finished backups with the desired list of backups, use GitLab CI/CD to create Docker image, push it to our own, private Docker Registry, run it on our server via GitLab Runner, and send notification to our Zulip server.
  • Upgrade scripts for services running in Docker.
  • Upgrading iRedMail.
  • Upgrading Zulip.
  • Upgrading host OS.
When you finish the course, you'll be equipped to add any additional services you need for your particular line of work.
