I was wondering whether there is an easy way to decouple infrastructure components (i.e. redis, rabbitmq, nginx) on remote servers?
A quick overview of the engine code shows that some parts look for environment variable 'REDIS_URL'. However, setting this is not enough as it turned out after a test.
IMHO, being able to point the minemeld instance to remotely running redis and rabbitmq (I got the minemeld-web and nginx decoupled easily) will bring some benefits like easy scaling and easier container adoption.
PS: I am willing to put some efforts in that, should a development is needed. I will need some directions where to start, though. 🙂
