As you’ve probably seen, Meteor Cloud is now live! This release is inspired by you, our community, and is the evolution of our commercial offering. We’re so thrilled to share it with you!
Here’s the breakdown of some of the changes. Instead of having a separate space for hosting, open-source, and performance monitoring, we’re now unifying the product offering for Galaxy Hosting, Meteor APM as well as Atmosphere and merging these into one centralized dashboard. You’ll see these changes reflected in your Dashboard after login.
We’re even more excited to announce the addition of some key features, a lot of which have been requested by the community for some time. Take a look at some of the changes and updates below:
A new Meteor Cloud Dashboard
Easy access to Galaxy Hosting, APM and Atmosphere
Return of the Free Plan
Free MongoDB Shared Hosting
Github Sign-in and Sign-up
To see all of these changes, you can sign in with your existing Meteor credentials to access your new dashboard. Additionally, your app’s functionality and hosting configuration has not changed and will function as normal upon sign-in.
As always, please let us know if you have any questions or comments. We’re always happy to help and appreciate any feedback. Thank you for being on this journey with us - we’re very thankful to have such an active, engaged and helpful community behind us.
Do you have a package? Post a demo using the free deploy.
Do you have a hobby project? Post it now using the free deploy.
Never deployed a Meteor app to Galaxy? https://react-tutorial.meteor.com/ cover all the steps, from a new app to deploy. It’s even easier now as you don’t need to set up DNS, MongoDB and Credit Card with the new features (this tutorial will be updated soon to use Free deploy as well).
Very glad to see Meteor getting better and better!
Can someone elaborate more about “Free MongoDB Shared Hosting”? Size, specs, where hosted, how access etc. What are the pros except that it is free?
Also from my understanding of this section https://www.meteor.com/cloud#pricing-section , free Mongo only available as a free plan option. Can this Mongo option be used (or possibly scaled, become non shared) for other plans, while being a Meteor “native” solution? Just exploring it as a possible alternative to Atlas, Compose, etc.
Hi, we are going to provide better details next week but I can anticipate a few things here:
Behind the scenes we are using ScaleGrid as our provider.
Sizes are not important in this case as we are not limiting them but if your database starts to get too big we can reach you as the free option is not designed to be used in production. You know, it’s free, so if you abuse we may need to talk to you to adjust the usage.
The MongoDB version is v4.2.8 (wiredtiger). When you finish your first deploy you provide the full URI for you to access and get all the information that you need. You can also see in your settings panel on Galaxy. You can even edit your settings directly on Galaxy
I believe the main pro is that it’s very easy to setup, just provide --mongo in your first deploy and that is it. Of course, it’s free as well.
Right now you can use this free database in any plan to be honest but we don’t recommend for production usage so you should use only with free apps.
In the future we may offer a non shared database plan that would be ready for production but that is not what we are offering now.
