I find myself currently unable to deploy to Galaxy (although my already deployed apps are still up), and have been having intermittent issues with the service over the past 24 hours. Although status.meteor.com shows issues yesterday, none appear today…And since I can’t access the interface, I can’t open a ticket.
This leads me to a larger question: Does Galaxy offer an uptime SLA? All i’ve seen are service response time SLAs.
Although I see the value that Galaxy has concerning deployments from an ease of use perspective, you can get an equal amount of processing power on a $5 a month DO droplet, which also comes with a 99.99% uptime SLA.
I’m more than willing to pay MDG for making my life easier, but uptime is a non-negotiable priority for many clients and i’m worried that Galaxy won’t be able to deliver on this.
I would really prefer to have an uptime SLA to point my clients to, otherwise I don’t think that I can realistically suggest Galaxy as a well thought out solution to hosting production apps.
