Have any of you picked a Galaxy competitor because of a lack of features?


Galaxy was really nice for the beginning, as things work somehow automatically :+1: which saved us a lot of time and money (and in effect allowed us focusing more on the important stuff -> the product).

We’re currently looking into a self hosted solution as the lack of proper auto scaling is getting more and more out of hand with our increasing amount of users and apps.

We do not have an autoscaling feature and I would not expect one any time soon


NodeChef provides easy to set up rule based auto scaling and alerting.


Caprover, previously Captain Duck Duck, is just perfectly fine.

There is also, Scalingo, that I recommend to my clients sometimes.


CapRover.com for sure. I just pay for the barebone server.


We are moving everything to Google Cloud, but Galaxy has no support for it.
Because of that, we developed a package to help deploy to AppEngine as easy as if it was Galaxy: https://github.com/EducationLink/meteor-google-cloud


We’re using waveshosting.com. So far so good.

We found Galaxy to be too expensive.
