There has been an up and coming categorization of engineers in the Drupal world that specialize in what we call DevOps. DevOps entails managing the infrastructure and workflow practices to deliver enterprise level sites in complex environments. This should span everything from automated testing, change management tools like puppet, branching strategies, continuous integration, performance and anything else that falls in this category.
Please make every effort to keep posts in this group on topic. We will do our best to assist, but this is not a dumping ground for random requests and development problems.

We're a Drupal strategy, development, training and consulting company with teams in Los Angeles, Boston and Miami. We like overcoming challenges and doing things that haven't been done before, and we're looking for great people to join us.
This position is for system administrators and high performance specialists. We're growing, and our development, training, support and marketing departments also have positions with immediate availability.
The majority of us are in the Los Angeles area, but as a distributed company we welcome telecommuters.
Customers who we work with love us for our dedication to the high quality of our work, how we exceed their expectations and that we communicate with honesty, integrity and transparency. See our Clients list and Case Studies for an idea of the challenging and exciting work that we do.
Our team loves us for the same reasons, and for our company culture, our highly competitive rates and our in-house training and mentoring program. As a team member, you'll find your freedom and salary are unmatched elsewhere.
We're deeply dedicated to contributing to both the Drupal project and its community, and we offer paid time for our community contributions, including Drupal modules, themes and event organizing.
The skills that we value the most are communication, collaboration and community contribution. If you'd like to join our team or would just like us to keep you in mind for future work, let us know at http://www.larks.la/jobs
Please note that we are looking for individuals, not agencies or recruiters. When contacting us, tell us about the following:
- Your Drupal.org username
- Your resume and LinkedIn profile
- Your specialties, whether they be design, theming, development, marketing, system administration, training, project management, etc.
- Case studies or articles about websites you've built (or helped build) and what you're proud of
- A list of Drupal modules and themes that you maintain or contribute to on Drupal.org
- Your location (i.e. the time zone you're usually in) and if you're a morning lark or a night owl
- Where you'd like to go for the next Larks company retreat
For extra credit, check out the questions that our team has selected.
Exaltation of Larks is a company of talented and passionate people and while we like rock stars as much as anyone else, we like working together and getting things done more than watching someone perform. We embrace participation and like the idea that we should be working with people rather than working for them.
Our core values set us apart from the rest and two of those values are good communication and mutual respect. We make an effort to tell people what they need to hear, not what they want to hear. This is important when working with one another, and it's equally important when working with our clients and partners.
In short, the people we want to work with are great at what they do, demonstrate leadership and guide people to be their best. Rock stars, or people who take all the credit and attention, are egotistical and hard to work with, and who may or may not have what it takes to get the job done but insists they do anyway, need not apply.
If you’re like us, you love a good puzzle. It’s not always easy for us to see how a person thinks and likes to work just from reading their resume and that’s why this list is here. Don’t worry, we already know the answers and would love to hear from you whether you know the answers or not.
Include your responses to any of the questions at http://www.larks.la/jobs when contacting us and we’ll have something to talk about when we get back to you. Some of these are trivia questions and a correct answer tells us that you either know your industry or are good at doing research.
For questions that don’t have a single answer, help us understand your process by explaining how you’d go about finding the solution. If there’s another question that you think belongs in this list, let us know at http://www.larks.la/jobsRead more

how to manage Drupal team with multiple developers of Drupal working collaborative on a large scale project
I have a question about management of Drupal projects. I search the forums but cannot find any complete solution for it.
In large scale web projects that need a team for development I don’t know how it is possible to development simultaneously with a team of developers. In Drupal projects I think about 85 to 95 percentages of project is configuration by using modules and only 5 to 15 percentages of remaining needs to write and develop Drupal modules which depends of course on requirements of projects.Read more

I'd be interested in hearing/seeing from folks here what your preferred "master" server monitoring cocktail looks like. I'm continually tweaking mine, just tonight adding a Nagios plugin to help me ID when MySQL may be restarting frequently due to corrupted pages (or whatever.) Noticeably absent from the attached screenshot is anything directly output from Drupal, but I never said I was done. :-)
What does your list look like?
