      Agreed some way to send syslog events to an ELK stack would be handy. We have the NewRelic agent running, I dont see why we cant have the option to enable and configure the syslog beats

          Thanks Paul. Would a docker image suit the same needs?. Assume so. We are leaning towards it for the exact same problem you mention.

          Hi Guys, another option for this is to just install apt-clone on the server. We can then use that to replicate the installed modules on a local/dev server.

          If i could edit the title I would change it to allow us to replicate server locally. Vagrant, Docker or apt-clone are all valid ways to do this.

          Thanks

          Personally I prefer Vagrant it has a slightly different use case to docker, because it works with any virtual infrastructure, I think its even included a docker provisioner as well.

          https://www.quora.com/What-is-the-difference-between-Docker-and-Vagrant-When-should-you-use-each-one

          I think the learning curve with Vagrant is less, and people can use whatever they already have, so you might find it easier to hit a wider userbase with Vagrant.

          IF you go down the docker route, just provide a simple vagrant file so we can provision that, it is really just a single file, so would help.

            Im going against the grain here and saying I dont want you to offer a reseller service. Your already a reseller of server space in a way. Every company i have seen go down this route, grow too fast and the customers suffer. Stick to providing a good platform for those who need it.

                  Hi Paul,

                  Understand your problem but don’t think we are big enough to put the kind of pressure needed for this. Currently they only offer mailboxes in US and, for what we know, have no plans to support mailboxes in EU.

                  In any case, we have raised this already with our Rackspace manager and will add the feature as soon as they have it available.
