Hi everyone! I built a hosting platform called https://www.rompli.com. It can host any docker container that listens on HTTP. The web app is built entirely in meteor and therefore has first class support for meteor applications (sticky sessions, websockets, ssl).
How much does it cost?
It is currently in beta which means two things. 1. It’s free. 2. You may only have up to five (5) containers.
What do I get for one container?
One container is 512MB memory with 0.5 ECU compute. You also get single click coordinated rolling updates, and single click scaling.
How do I deploy my meteor app with Rompli?
How do I use a custom domain name?
Is there a FAQ?
What is the tech stack?
The webapp is written entirely in firstname.lastname@example.org. The container orchestration is implemented with Docker Swarm. Nginx is used for loadbalancing and I have an Elastic Load Balancer in front of the nginx servers.
Why is it named Rompli?
It got the name because docker containers work really well in groups and a group of otters is called a romp. Also the underlying technology is using The Raft Consensus Algorithm and a large group of otters is also known as a raft.
I hope you try it out and give me feedback!
