  • Plugins

    NodeChef supports over 27+ community developed plugins you can take advantage of. Simply enable it from your Admin dashboard and you are ready to go. We are always expanding the list of supported plugins based on our customers needs.

  • Auto scaling

    As your data and traffic needs grow we'll scale your database and the discourse app automatically so you don't need to worry about capacity. Just install once and never worry about infrastructure as your community grows.

  • Free SSL Certificate

    NodeChef automatically installs SSL certificate for your domain if you request for it from the dashboard. You no longer have to pay for an SSL certificate and then have to worry about correctly configuring it. We have automated the process.

  • Continuous Backups

    Automated backups are made every day and retained for up to 4 days. We also perform continuous backups as data is written for maximum data protection. You can also store your backups off site to S3.

  • Bare metal performance

    Your forums run on dedicated bare metal servers with local SSD for the best performance. Your forums are run on beefy servers with more than enough memory and CPU capacity to handle any traffic.
