My New Server Naming Convention

Posted at — Apr 2, 2013

I’ve decided to name my machines with the abbreviations of the Zodiac, Planets, and periodic table of elements. That gives me a working set of over 10K machine names. I might even add a single letter suffix in order to describe it’s function(s). My new all-in-one server might be designated:TAU-E-O-LLPSTAU - taurusE - EarthO - OxygenLLPS - Linux, Lighttpd, Postgres, sshdFor this to work you need a really good DNS support system and a very flexible application configuration system.
