"The Ship has Sailed", on 20th September Containership Cloud announced that their platform will shut down by 31st October. Containership users are advised to find an alternative solution in the next 6 weeks. We are happy to help. Give Cloud 66 a spin to check if it meets your infrastructure needs.
Why Cloud 66?
We are a partner, not just a provider
We’re profitable, privately owned, and in this for the long-haul. Since 2012 we've helped tens of thousands of developers deploy more than 3 billion times. You can expect our products to be always on your side and help you along the way as you build and grow your business.
Cloud 66 Key benefits:
Cloud 66 makes it extremely easy for developers to configure and deploy software to any server. Our products are like your in-house DevOps team. They take care of your uptime, scaling, and security, just like your own team would. Combine the convenience of PaaS with the flexibility and control of IaaS, for your Rails, Node, and containerized (Kubernetes) infrastructure.
- Full flexibility. Build and configure your servers the way you want.
- Full control. You have SSH access to all your servers.
- Resize server CPU, memory & disk for free.
- No vendor lock-in. Deploy to any cloud or your own servers. Native integration with AWS, GoogleCloud, Azure, Linode, DigitalOcean, and Packet. Use our Registered Servers feature to deploy anywhere else.
What product works best for you?
Cloud 66 has four different products that you can choose from depending on your infrastructure needs:
- Native products: Cloud 66 for Rails, Cloud 66 for Node,
- Container-based products: Cloud 66 Maestro and Cloud 66 Skycap.
Cloud 66 Maestro (A complete PaaS, backed by Kubernetes with native database and storage support) - is a full stack application management platform. With support for containers (backed by Kubernetes) and complete with support for non-containerized parts of your infrastructure including firewalls, network config, databases (provisioning, monitoring, backups and replication), security and ACL access control, OS and server level security monitoring, deployment workflow management, native DB and storage components, Maestro Clusters and more.
Cloud 66 Skycap - is the easiest way to deploy and run applications on any existing Kubernetes cluster. You can use Skycap to automatically turn your source code into container (Docker) images, manage your Kubernetes configuration files and deploy your applications to any Kubernetes cluster.
How much does it cost?
We offer pay as-you-go pricing for all our products.
- Rails, Node, and Maestro is a charge of $14.99 per server per month.
- Skycap is a charge of $3.99 per service per month.
How to move from Containership to Cloud 66
Checklist before you get started:
- Sign up for a Cloud 66 account with a free 4-week trial and no credit card required during the trial period.
- A Git repo containing your application code. This can be a private or public repo.
- A cloud account or your own server(s). Cloud 66 does not host applications. We natively integrate with major cloud providers to manage servers on your own account, or you can bring your own servers via our Register Servers feature. We will automate the build and deployment of your application any cloud provider.
Move your apps in 3 steps: Code, Data and Traffic:
You can migrate your application to Cloud 66 in 3 simple steps:
- Build and deploy your application’s code via the Cloud 66 dashboard
- Import your data to your new environment
- Redirect traffic to the new endpoint
