Choose from the many supplied images and within no time you have your site online. Don’t worry about installation, configuration, and maintenance of your server – that’s taken care of!
Suddenly more visitors or requests? Running a flash sale and don’t want your website to go down? Containers can be scaled up with one click, both horizontally and vertically and without downtime. We are ready for your success.
In comparison with a VM/VPS, Docker containers are lightweight and therefore start up much faster and have a higher performance. In this isolated environment, perfect for a growing website.
A VPS or dedicated server can only be scaled vertically by switching to a larger package with more resources. Because a reboot is necessary most of the time, there is downtime involved. Downgrading is often not possible due to the limitations of the technology.
With a VPS or Dedicated server, your costs are statically set month after month. Which is great, unless your website doesn’t use them constantly. You could be wasting your money for a time during the month when your website doesn’t need all of those resources.
Containers can be scaled both vertically and horizontally: you can make the containers larger or smaller. You can also duplicate a front-end container to load balance the load between them. There is no downtime during scaling either horizontally or vertically.
Containers are billed for consumption every month. Every minute we look at how many and which containers you have created, and at the end of the month you pay the average consumption. This way the cost is based on what you use during the month. If you have a slow week scale the container down to save money. If you have large traffic just scale up or create a second container to load balance the traffic.
Each container is created with an SSH and SFTP login. In addition, phpMyAdmin is available for managing databases.
You can link one or more domain names via the dashboard. The load balancer directs the traffic to the right containers. You get a generated domain name automatically for staging purposes.
Thanks to our Let’s Encrypt integration (Coming soon!), you can generate SSL certificates for free. In addition, you can also upload your own certificates.
In addition to our dashboard, you can also create, scale up and manage containers automatically via our API.
All containers are replicated to other nodes so you have direct failover in case of a node problem. We’re going to launch on-demand snapshots in the near future!
In addition to our images, you can also use your own Docker images with us. You can place these images on Docker Hub or on our container registry.
Without technical knowledge, Container Cloud enables you to set up a modern, scalable and reliable hosting environment in no time.
Internet traffic comes in at the load balancer, which distributes traffic across the application containers.
The application containers run your website or application, for example, your WordPress site or PHP application. Application containers can be scaled both horizontally and vertically.
For example, your MySQL or MongoDB database will run in the database container. Database containers can be scaled vertically.
The containers can communicate safely with each other via an internal network.
All data is replicated 3x, to protect you against hardware failure and to increase disk performances.
The first 10 GB of disk space is included for each container. Do you need more? No problem! You can use up to 50 GB of disk space per container. The costs for this are invoiced retrospectively for consumption and are $0.30 per GB per month.
All of our services are located in Chicago, IL in the New Continuum Data Center.
Yes! We have a container registry option that you can enable. That way you can easily push/pull container configurations.
We have a simple way to add containers using Docker Hub! Any image in Docker Hub you can pull into our system in only a few clicks.
Good question! The 2 drawbacks we get questions are is: There is no PHPMail enabled. You must use an SMTP service such as SendGrid. There are no Email boxes. Since this is an App Cloud only Apps are enabled!
It is not! We run our own Docker Orchestration. We have more flexibility this way and can offer a better service than a docker installation on a VM.
Absolutely not! Our system is designed to support load balancing with no extra cost. If you scale a container the load balancer will detect that and start balancing traffic between the two!
