We are looking to build a setup that basically is a Website Factory.
We would like to create web apps over and over again using our Rackspace Servers.
So this initial setup is very key for us, we are looking to replicate it over and over again.
Our Production env should include:
1 load balancer
initially 2 servers with magento codebase
1 mysql (percona) db server
Our Development env should include:
1 magento server
1 mysql db
1 git server
Also we will need...
Instructions on how to move finished code from dev to pro
and how to replicate the configuration to new servers.
Our main goal is to replicate this whole pro/dev env as many times as we would like it the most simple manner possible. So i think we need some configuration management tools
Your expertise and advice is requested anywhere efficiency is warrented.
At this point in time we don't need any magento/php coding done ONLY server side setup/configuration.
