Task Scheduling in a big environment with two or more application servers

Posted 11 months ago by araeuchle

Hello guys. My first post here! We have started creating a new web application using Laravel 5.5. We are expecting to have several thousands of users so we will host this application on AWS using a Load Balancer and two application servers for the start.

To my question: I have given the following task to create a Job that runs daily at 00:00. Check if a user have birthday, if he has birthday, sent him an email. Also check for his age and depending on his new age he gets a new user role.

I realised that Laravel's build Task Scheduler should be perfect for it, but it wants me to a cronjob every one minute. So i am looking for some solution were i can build something that is really reliable to call long running tasks.

Any help is really appreciated!
