A presentation given at Samvera Connect 2018 described thus: Despite widespread interest in Hyrax, Samvera’s new flagship repository solution, there is a dearth of documentation about how to run a production instance. We’ll cover the lessons we’ve learned from a year of building and hosting Hyrax, including our new project checklist, logging and monitoring practices, and data migration paths. DCE has been hosting a Hyrax based ETD repository for Emory University for 12 months. We've made a lot of discoveries and improvements since we launched. We'll be sharing our learnings and best practices for running Samvera Based repositories including: * Infrastructure as code (esp. ansible for configuration management) * Monitoring using open-source and commercial tools (nagios, ok computer, splunk, pingdom, honeybadger) * Maintenance, Upgrades, and Testing A video recording of this session is available at the 'Related URL' below.
