This blog post aims to dissect the various deployment options available for Rails applications in 2024, emphasizing the choice between native and containerized approaches. It dives into the advantages and drawbacks of each method and explores the hosting options available for each. Let’s dive right in!

Amazon Simple Email Service (SES) is a cost-effective email service provided by AWS. It is by far the cheapest option available out there. Comparing the cost of sending emails with SES and other services like SendGrid or Mailchimp, it can be 100x cheaper. However there is a catch. Using SES directly, you will not get some of the features you might need to control the bounce rate of your emails.

JWT is a popular way for authentication and authorization, especially for service to service communications. When it comes to internal tools, distribution and renewal of JWT can become a challenge. Our internal support systems use JWT to authenticate and authorize access and they are written in a few different languages and run on different hosting options.

We’ve been busy building a few features that are going to be very useful for teams at larger companies using Cloud 66: Automatic User Provisioning and SAML SSO.

Google Identity-Aware Proxy (IAP) is a Google Cloud service that provides authentication for web applications. This service simplifies the process of building web applications authenticated with Google, eliminating the need to handle user-related concerns within your application code. This is especially valuable for internal applications within organizations that already utilize GSuite. It is straightforward to use, particularly when operating on Google Cloud.

Today I am thrilled to introduce our Intelligent Deployment Analysis feature, designed to significantly improve your troubleshooting process. Picture this: you're stuck, scratching your head over what went wrong with your deployment - was it the Node.js asset compiler or a missing package in your Dockerfile?

To celebrate a 3-year integration anniversary between Cloud 66 and Vultr we’re showcasing some of the changes and improvements that we have implemented in both of our platforms. To show how well our platforms work together, we’re taking a Rails 7 application sample and walking you through how to containerize and deploy that application on Vultr with Cloud 66.

In the past few months, our team has worked hard to enhance our database features. We've made significant updates to our database management capabilities, giving our customers the ability to manage multiple logical databases on the same server (or cluster) and to create custom database users.

If you're a developer looking for an easier way to manage your Rails, JAMstack, or containerized applications, you'll be pleased to know that our team has worked hard to launch a new dashboard that simplifies the process. The new dashboard will be released to general availability next week. Here is a quick preview, let us know your thoughts.

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?

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?

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.

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”.
