Game Developer Confessions, Part 03: Behold! the Micro-NOC

Introducing the new Micro-NOC! Intel NUC7PJYH1 VM hosts, Intel NUC5PPYH web and game servers, Cisco managed Layer 2 switches, Synology NAS devices, SonicWall firewalls… and Linux, Linux and more Linux! (Batteries not included.)

You might be asking, what does this have to do with game development? Bedrock: cultivated workflow, scalable infrastructure, security, devops and—most importantly—sustainable technologies. Oh yeah… and all subdomains and servers are named after planets and characters in Metroid (respectively), which is fucking rad.
