The deployment of Ruby on Rails and Rack frameworks is embedded in Cloud 66’s DNA, but we are always interested to see other Ruby frameworks becoming popular, and happy to support developers who prefer to use them instead of Rails. In this post, we’re going to show you how easy it is to deploy a Hanami Ruby application on AWS cloud with Cloud 66. The recent Hanami v2.0 release brought a lot of incremental upgrades to the framework, which made it more mature.

We started Cloud 66 with a single product to deploy any Rails application to any cloud. Then, in 2014, we introduced Cloud 66 for Node; in 2015, Cloud 66 Maestro v1, 2016 Cloud 66 Maestro v2 (Kubernetes), 2019 Cloud 66 Skycap, and finally, Cloud 66 Prepress (Static Sites) was released in 2022. All these products exist to serve a single purpose: deployment of any application to any cloud. Today we are making it easier to do that: we are consolidating all our products into one: Cloud 66!

Cloud 66 turned ten this year! While this is a big deal for us, I understand that it is not important to you. After all, who cares if a company turns 10, right?

We are no longer a scrappy startup with only big dreams to keep us going. Today, hundreds of customers rely on us daily for critical parts of their business.

We have rolled out our new "operation log viewer." This feature is not just a facelift of our logging interface but a whole new way to view and search logs for actions taken by you and your team on your applications. The new viewer supports historical deployment logs, allowing you to see logs from previous actions. In addition, you can see logs for background operations like renewing your SSL certificates.

Application Groups are arbitrary collections of your applications that can be deployed simultaneously. Groups are not mutually exclusive - applications can exist in more than one group. What is Cloud 66? Cloud 66 gives you everything you need to build, deploy and maintain your applications on any cloud, without the headache of dealing with “server stuff”. Useful links.

A failover group is a managed, quick-response DNS address that automatically follows your application's web endpoints. You can connect it to up to two instances of an application at any time - a primary and backup instance. Should you need to switch traffic between your instances, you can flip a switch and your traffic will begin flowing to the backup instance within 5 minutes. What is Cloud 66? Cloud 66 gives you everything you need to build, deploy and maintain your applications on any cloud, without the headache of dealing with “server stuff”.
Cloud 66 supports two types of backups: managed and unmanaged. Managed backups: Using managed backups has several benefits: The 100 most recent managed backups are kept by default. Unmanaged backups: Unmanaged backups are stored on your local server and are available under `/var/cloud66/backups`. The 10 most recent unmanaged backups are kept by default. We don’t charge for unmanaged backups. What is Cloud 66? Cloud 66 gives you everything you need to build, deploy and maintain your applications on any cloud, without the headache of dealing with “server stuff”.
Database replication involves configuring a master and replica database architecture, whereby the replica is an exact copy of the master at all times. This feature is supported for MySQL, PostgreSQL, Redis and MongoDB. Database replication can be set up for a single application, between applications, or between database groups. What is Cloud 66? Cloud 66 gives you everything you need to build, deploy and maintain your applications on any cloud, without the headache of dealing with “server stuff”.
Cloud 66 offers a range of deployment options for your applications: And there are also two types of Rollouts strategies available: What is Cloud 66? Cloud 66 gives you everything you need to build, deploy and maintain your applications on any cloud, without the headache of dealing with “server stuff”.
What are Preview Deployments? Preview Deployments automatically build and deploy a (private) preview version of your application whenever you commit changes to your repo. The preview runs alongside your active application and helps you to quickly test changes to your code without having to deploy to a separate environment. What is Cloud 66? Cloud 66 gives you everything you need to build, deploy and maintain your applications on any cloud, without the headache of dealing with “server stuff”.
Cloud 66 will not do in-place database upgrades, because this process may cause your application to stop working or may not be possible automatically. To upgrade your database through Cloud 66, we recommend that you create a new application (at which point Cloud 66 will deploy the newer database version). Once the new application is created, you can migrate data from your old application to your new application.
LiveLogs is Cloud 66’s real-time logging interface. It allows you to monitor your app via the Cloud 66 Dashboard. You can set up custom Live Logs via your Manifest file. What is Cloud 66? Cloud 66 gives you everything you need to build, deploy and maintain your applications on any cloud, without the headache of dealing with “server stuff”.
Cloud 66 aims to make it easier to build immutable infrastructure. Building servers and applications from scratch is much better than modifying existing server configurations and tinkering with settings until things start to work.
Traffic consist of one or more functions that run in a sequence. They run from top to bottom and affect the route that each web request to your application takes. They can also block traffic based on different conditions. If traffic is blocked, it will not run through the rest of the rules that come after the current one. What is Cloud 66? Cloud 66 gives you everything you need to build, deploy and maintain your applications on any cloud, without the headache of dealing with “server stuff”.
