    Yep, we have over 300 of them in Production in India (Pune, Mumbai and Delhi locations) under CloudJiffy and Leapswitch.

    I have signed up. Absolutely amazing UI. I love the style.

    But! It is hard to navigate, it is complex and I don't know what I'am doing in first 10 minutes. Just pressing buttons blindly. Honestly - it is more complex than AWS or GCP non sense. You should think about serious overhaul of it.

    Thank you for your feedback. As we are a full-fledged PaaS the UI offers a lot more features than other clouds. That said, we understand that it can be a bit overwhelming at the start and we recommend signing up for a demo with one of our solution architects - https://calendly.com/cloudjiffy-demo . This is a free, no commitment demo where we will show you how to use the interface and ensure you get the best price and performance for your cloud requirements.

    For example, if you are planning to host WordPress , we offer multiple options -

    1. Marketplace > Wordpress (Standalone (LEMP / Litespeed LLSMP) or Clustered - Load balancer, database clustering, redis etc).

    2. Create Environment > PHP > Apache / Nginx / Litespeed > MySQL / MariaDB > Select versions > Select scaling - vertical + horizontal > Done

    For wordpress site is it mandatory to select both cloudlets - one for app (WP) and other one for database (mysql/maria). Can't it fit on just 'app'??

    You can choose Separate App and Database containers, or a single container having both web and db servers (and redis).

    In our Marketplace, you can look at Standalone Wordpress which is an all-in-one container with Wordpress and it is pre-optimized. You can choose Nginx or Litespeed as the web server. It includes Redis and has an optional connection to Verizon CDN.

    If you choose separate app and database containers, you need to select cloudlets ( reserved and dynamic/scaling ) for each container.

    Separate containers is better, because you can scale individually. If you need more DB - add it, or more power to Apache/PHP - config it. Flexibility.

    Indeed. It is a balance between flexibility and complexity. You can keep it simple at the start to understand the platform and its capabilities and then use the additional options to scale up / scale out.

    okay, I've started the trial, installed WP, Litespeed (WP standalone kit) and it got deployed with following specs, as well as my usage:

    Usage / Alloted
    APP wordpress kit:
    Cloudlets 3/14
    RAM 300MB /1.7 GB
    CPU 30MHz / 5.6 GHz
    disk 3.6 GB/ 15 GB

    I've also added an extra Memcached node:
    Cloudlets 1/4
    RAM 16MB / 500 MB
    CPU 8MHz / 1.6 GHz
    disk 415MB /5GB

    Now I've two questions:
    1. IF we assume my usage of APP wordpress remains stable for entire month, say, 3 cloudlets, 300 MB RAM, 30 MHz cpu, and disk 3.6 GB, then where can I predict and how can I predict the billing in USD/INR?

    1. Will I be billed for alloted Cloudlets? That is 14 + 4 for entire month? or is that what I'm using 3 + 1 cloudlets be billed? (app and memcached)

    Had the control panel shown an approximate billing along with those above figures, it would have been quite easier to adjust/scale down usage rather than getting a surprise-billed-usage at end of the month!

    You can view billing on an hourly basis by clicking on the $ icon in front of the environment, or view billing history in the top menu. All costs are hourly and prepaid so you never get a surprise bill.

    Litespeed is free upto 2GB RAM.

    Memcached is not required as Redis is installed and configured to work with Litespeed using Wordpress Litespeed Cache plugin.

    gonna give it a try

    Linkila - Super powered short URLs

  • jarjar Provider

    These are the kinds of things that developers tend to love, and sysadmins tend to struggle with. Like kubernetes. That’s the gap I’ve noticed as you’ll have some people say “wow this is way easier than a plain unmanaged VPS” and others say “a plain unmanaged VPS is so much easier for me than this.” The two mindset rarely cross, and it’s why devs and admins frequently clash in large organizations.

    This is definitely something I recommend admins to play with too though, so you can get a glimpse of a different way to do things without going head first into AWS/GCP.

  • ericlsericls Member

    I think it might more suited for hosting an app than hosting your own product

  • @jar said: These are the kinds of things that developers tend to love, and sysadmins tend to struggle with.

    These are essentially OpenVZ containers running within Docker, with an ability to deploy Docker images and pre-made configs for Wordpress etc. I've used their service before and you can indeed use it like a VPS, by SSH-ing through their gateway.

    The platform is built on Virtuozzo 7 and Docker, because of which are able to offer automatic vertical scaling and usage based billing.

    This offer looked promising but sadly ram can't be increased without also increasing CPU, making it ridiculously expensive if your application needs ram.

    No, the beauty of the platform is that you don't pay for resources you don't use. If you assign 8GB RAM and equivalent CPU and use only 1GB and equivalent CPU ( or less ) , you are only charged for it.

    If you assign 8GB ram and equivalent CPU and use 8GB ram but only 1/10th of the assigned CPU, you pay for 10x the CPU you need, making it ridiculously expensive if you need a lot of ram but not much CPU.
