I’m starting to get closer to launching a Meteor app I have been working on for a while. As I move closer to production I’m starting to look deeper into deployments and hosting. I wanted to see what you guys do for running your large scale Meteor apps in production.
I already have one app in production that is run on a single web server with NGINX in front of it and MongoDB on the same server. This works fine for my very low traffic site, but my new app will (hopefully) get a lot more traffic. I really want to explore things like load balancing, Docker containers, and Mongo replication to make it very scalable and fault tolerant. I’m a big AWS guy, but Google Cloud has a lot of the same stuff.
Obviously another huge plus is minimal maintenance and push button scaling, among other things.
So, how do you guys run your large scale Meteor apps in production?
