Top 3 Reasons To Work With Crafty Penguins’ DevOps and Linux Consultants

1. Your developers want to focus on coding. Your team wants to focus on achieving milestones, cranking out features, and fixing bugs. We come alongside them taking care of infrastructure, server administration, proactive maintenance, scalability, and disaster recovery.

2. You don’t want your team to spend months/years learning Linux and DevOps. We have infrastructure automation toolkits ready to go for Python and Java web technology stacks. Over the last couple of years, we have been building out our toolkits (which we call “Iceberg”) that contain SaltStack and Kubernetes automation, standard operating procedures (SOPs), and other documentation to handle regular DevOps and SRE requirements. It also provides much-needed standardization between servers and our clients so that anyone in our team can support you in a consistent manner. Iceberg is a great place for the Crafty Penguins to live.

3. You need an experienced team of engineers and Linux consultants. Our senior engineers individually have 20+ years of experience. We have breadth and depth in many areas, with both legacy and modern Linux and Open Source technologies. Chances are high that we’ve seen it before. Our wisdom gained from years of being bitten by technology will save you time by either thinking ahead to prevent potential issues, and quickly solving anything that does occur. When you hit a wall, we are here to help via Slack, Zoom, email, or phone.

Client Success Stories

A Capable and Friendly Partner that Allows us to Focus On Our Core Business

Having Crafty Penguins manage our systems saves us time to focus on our core business which is web filtering techniques. This is our unique selling proposition, so time spent on that is better than time spent on the underlying infrastructure. CP really has very in-depth knowledge on the systems being used. When there is a problem, they are able to look a lot further and deeper than the average IT provider. As just one example, a couple of years ago we had an issue with packet loss on our Linux load balancers under extreme load. They were able to solve this by patching and enhancing the Linux NIC drivers. As we are in the Netherlands and they are in Canada, they are able to perform maintenance, changes, migrations etc on our infrastructure during our night, which are their business hours. Crafty Penguins (Kerkhoff Technologies) is the place to go when you are looking for a capable and friendly partner!

Creative Solutions, Improved Page Load Times, Experience, and Knowledge Sharing with our Developers

With the help of Wim Kerkhoff at Crafty Penguins, our development team was able to significantly improve our server performance and decrease load time for our web pages. Wim’s personal commitment to our project and advice to our development team meant we were able to find new solutions to our scaling challenges and at the same time equip our team with the necessary expertise to solve future challenges.
