The workers of Palante Tech are grieving the unexpected passing of Linda Thurston, Operations Coordinator at the War Resisters League. We have worked with Lin and WRL since our very first year in existence, before we even incorporated as a business. Lin was an amazing client and a beautiful soul.
Our infrastructure team member, Jamila, recently completed an upgrade of our entire monitoring infrastructure for Windows computers, which is a key part of how we keep our client systems running, up to date, and virus free. This upgrade was almost 7 years in the works! We’re so excited to finally be up to date, using a set up that involves Icinga2, an open source monitoring software, with specific Powershell scripts to make it work nicely with Windows. We wanted to share the details of our set up so that others can replicate or iterate on it for their own use.
