What is Cloud 66?
Cloud 66 specializes in DevOps-as-a-Service for Rails and Docker, enabling developers to build, deploy and manage any application, on any server, via the cloud provider of choice. Offering the convenience of PaaS, with the flexibility of using your own servers, we make DevOps easy with a single, integrated toolkit.
How is the setup?
There’s nothing to setup. Cloud 66 connects to your cloud provider and fires up the servers you need to run your application under your own cloud account. You can connect Cloud 66 to your Rails git repository and use the BuildGrid feature to build your code into Docker images for container-based app deployment.
Which clouds are supported?
You can use your AWS, Google Cloud, Microsoft Azure, Rackspace, DigitalOcean, EMC, VMware, Linode, Cloud A, Packet and Vexxhost accounts with Cloud 66.
Do you support anything other than containers?
Yes! Cloud 66 also can build and manage your database servers, storage servers, load balancers (native to your cloud provider or HAProxy) and scheduled background jobs.
Do I need to change my code?
No, not really. You can use repos like Github or Bitbucket to import your existing Rails code. If you’re looking to use Docker for other language, you can use BuildGrid to build your code into Docker images, or bring your images directly to Cloud 66. Our Service Discovery is based on an intelligent DNS service locally setup and managed on your own servers so your containers can connect to each other without any code change.
Who else is using Cloud 66?
At the point of writing this, thousands of developers in hundreds of companies as large as Samsung and CareerBuilder, to innovative startups like BareMetrics and BugHerd, non-profits like Oxfam and the Gates Foundation, and digital agencies like Steam, Helium Technologies and Arden Labs are using Cloud 66 for their daily production workloads.
How much does it cost?
A fraction of any DIY solution! Using avergage developer / operation wages, Cloud 66 costs between 70% to 80% cheaper per server. You pay for what you use and your account is charged by minute of use with no locking contracts. It starts at $19 per server per month and goes down to $9 per server per month. Checkout our pricing page for more details.
What is a "server" on your pricing page?
Any cloud server — it can have different roles like a web server, database server or load balancer. A single server shared for different roles is billed as one. If you’re using Docker containers, you can host as many of these on a single server as you want. Billing remains on a per server level.
Do you have a free tier?
Using Cloud 66 for development environments is completely free. You will need to add a payment method to the account after your trial period is over but your card will not be charged if your stacks are all in development environment.
