PaaS vs Server(Best place to setup Meteor App for Production


Greetings everyone

I m new to Meteor community. I m trying to build an app using Meteor and was wondering, whats the difference between PaaS and server. I try to google but can’t really see the difference.
Can someone recommend me which one is better for Production Meteor App?

Thank you everyone.


A summary of my (limited) experience with production deployments is here, but this is all on a very small scale, with relatively few users.

I’ve got a feeling that if you’re going to grow, something with elasticity (like AWS Elastic Beanstalk and is going to make life easier in the long run, even if it takes a bit more work up front.

I’m yet to try it out, but it sounds like Arunoda’s meteorhacks:cluster might make Meteor dev ops a much easier proposition. Interesting comment on this here.
