Limitations/restrictions of deploying to meteor.com?


#1

I’m curious, what are the limitations and restrictions of deploying an app to <subdomain>.meteor.com? How long can you serve something there? What exactly are the disadvantages? Other than potentially poor performance due to sharing the server with a bunch of other apps.

Don’t deploy anything on there for which you need a guarantee of uptime or stability. It’s meant for prototyping and playing around with stuff.

Your site/app will shut down due to inactivity, so you can’t expect it to be available 24/7. Performance has been OK overall; I had to move one app to another server (by removing the live version and redeploying) due to 30s long MongoDB query delays, but it’s been fine otherwise.

Makes sense. I knew there had to be something about it to convince people not to make it a permanent home for something.

Thanks! :beers:
