I just went through this thread: Meteor Galaxy Auto-Scaling Package for the umpteenth time. Was in the midst of replying to it but figured that the final question I was posing in my comment might make a new thread a better fit:
I think @msavin has hit the nail on the head here - no point spending resources on a feature that may reduce the amount of money Galaxy makes -> This referring to auto-scaling as a feature in Galaxy.
Of course, the wider view would be that there is lost revenue by way of potential clients choosing alternatives because of a lack of certain features in Galaxy. Existing paying clients who ask for such features will get ignored as their actions (continuing to pay and use Galaxy) speaks louder than anything else.
So my question to the community is (is there a way to add polls here?) - have any of you moved away from Galaxy/avoided it entirely (thereby actually having a monetary loss to MDG) because of missing features/lack of development within Galaxy? If so, what service are you using instead and what is the feature in question?
Final Note - This isn’t meant as an attack on MDG. I love Meteor and Galaxy, for the features it does have, is a joy to use. I just have a vision of how much greater it could be and am hoping that a thread like this might motivate further development to make it that much better.
For me personally, while I have two apps on Galaxy, my default for new deployments is Zeit’s Now (using the very excellent meteor-now - https://forums.meteor.com/t/super-simple-and-free-meteor-deployments-using-zeit-now/ ).
Most requested and ignored features from Galaxy that I see on these forums:
