I have a Digital Ocean account and have three droplets that need to have both security put in place (firewalls, VPN, email security etc...) to protect the servers from hacking and also protect email content.
Also 2 of the servers need a game plan put together to allow for scaling for a large volume of users. My understanding I would need at create 2 clusters, where each cluster would have several associated droplets (system files, DB, analytics processing, file storage) and then a load balance to direct traffic between teh clusters. Also I want a plan to have redundancy to make sure if 1 cluster goes down, there is always at least 1 current version of the entire system available.
Then finally a backup plan for all system files, DB files, and file storage. I can not lose any data or files, so the backup would have to occur at least once an hour (if not more often) and all should be saved for at least 30 days.
DROPLET 1 - CentOS 7.2 X 64 - Uses WHM/cPanel to manage many domains and acts as email server via WHM/cPanel
DROPLET 2 - Ubuntu LEMP on 14.04 - dedicated server for one domain with no adminstrative software like WHM
DROPLET 3 - Debian 8.3 x 64 - dedicated server for one domain with no adminstrative software like WHM
Finally a plan to allow me to determine when I need to expand system resources (DB, CPU, RAM, DISk SPACE)
