We use Redis as a distributed real-time database/cache and RabbitMQ for communications between some asynchronous services.

We use Docker to develop locally and Kubernetes for our production and test environments. For our development workflow, we use gitlab as a code repository, CI/CD base system, code review, and task management. We also use Prometheus for monitoring.
