What does QualityBox do?

Everything is included: features like Visual Editor plus the Elasticsearch system; full automatic security upgrades; live kernel patching for 100% uptime; full-time expert service and support; constant development and release of the QualityBox platform (with the latest MediaWiki); full backups with instant restore capability; professional maintenance of the platform (which nobody else does like we do). We partner with engineers at NASA who develop the base platform and a team of other MediaWiki professional consultants plus direct contacts within the Wikimedia Foundation.

If you want a wiki you can trust, you’ve come to the right place.

What’s inside QualityBox? Is there an ingredient list?

To get an idea of what “service orchestration” looks like, we’d like to offer a glimpse into the ‘task’ list of the QualityBox controller. You can see an example or download the file below.

We use Ansible, which is software that automates software provisioning, configuration management, and application deployment. Ansible is a project of RedHat. While we have many different “plays” that can be executed on a QualityBox host the basic ‘site.yml’ play orchestrates the following major sub-systems:

  • cron
  • firewalld
  • ssh
  • ntp
  • haproxy
  • imagemagick
  • apache
  • php
  • PEAR
  • gluster
  • memcached
  • mongoDB
  • mysqld (mariadb)
  • elasticsearch
  • mediawiki core
  • mediawiki extensions
  • mediawiki skins
  • nodejs
  • parsoid
  • logging
  • XHProf XHGui
