|I personally only run about 5 for my various websites/services. If I had finished about half of the projects I've started, that number might be closer to 50.|
Although I don't spend much time managing the servers themselves, I can see how it would eat up a lot more time with more users and less organization.
A few things I'm curious about:
Are you counting servers you run at a company, or ones you use for your own side projects?
How do you manage them? Manually, scripts, enterprise apps, or something else?
What's the primary function of your servers? Front-end web, databases, back-end, etc?
I'm asking b/c I have a couple side projects almost ready to be launched, so I'm wondering if there is a better way I should be managing all these servers. Thanks!
