Server Fault is a question and answer site for professional system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

This will probably be on cloud.

Can anyone give any general tips on setting up a Admin-server/DB/Web/Processing/Development-environment architecture?

Like...

  • Security, only 1 admin server can be SSH'ed into. The others are ip-table blocked.
  • Admin server can SSH into other servers with a key.

Anyone have tips like these?

Question is a bit general for me. But on the specific thing you said:

 - Security, only 1 admin server can be SSH'ed into. The others are ip-table
   blocked.
 - Admin server can SSH into other servers with a key.

The problem is that you have a single point of a failure for being able to administer all your servers, so I would set up at least two servers that you can ssh into if you feel the need to limit ssh to most of the servers.

Hire someone who knows what they're doing to set all this up.
