With the Kubernetes-based Racks being released for a few weeks now, we’re wondering who has tried them out? If you have, how have you found them? If you haven’t, what’s stopped you from doing so?
Free credits are available from many of the cloud providers - $200 from Azure, $300 from GCP, AWS free tier, and Digital Ocean just being extremely competitive on price (look out for an upcoming blog post on this topic!) - this means that it’s extremely frictionless to get a Rack going for testing.
Many users are now running their production apps on v3 Racks, and experiencing the benefits of doing so. Deploys, rollbacks and scaling can be an order of magnitude faster. Running a staging Rack on a cheaper cloud provider makes a lot of sense. Support for custom load balancing allows for more service configuration options.
Is there anything else you’d like to see in the new Racks?
