Docker hosting on NodeChef

Deploying a dockerized app to NodeChef Docker hosting is a very simple process. Simply write a Dockerfile and then deploy your project folder by either using Git, uploading from the dashboard or pushing using the CLI.

The NodeChef platform takes care of codebase builds, application and database setup and container orchestration. With a simple web interface, you can scale each layer of your stack in a few clicks.

NodeChef bridges the gap between fortune 100 companies that can afford to run and manage an in-house dedicated infrastructure and small and mid sized businesses that seek dedicated hosting at an affordable price.

NodeChef managed bare metal cloud is more affordable and also outperforms VPS hosting and can save you tons of work configuring and managing your application.

Please note, NodeChef docker hosting does not support persistent volumes. You can safely deploy dockerized web and mobile apps. Support for TCP based apps is currently in the works and will be released at a later date. TCP support will allow for hosting caching servers such as MemCached and many more.


Layer Role
Load Balancer The load balancer is responsible for routing traffic to your application containers. The load balancer is also responsible for serving your static assets if you choose to. This can significantly improve performance and save the cost of the round trip to your application containers. The load balancer also supports sticky sessions. The platform dynamically configures the load balancer to route traffic to and from application containers on code updates or cluster changes.
Application Containers The application containers run your backend code. You can scale this layer to as many containers as you want.
Production grade SQL and NoSQL databases NodeChef dedicated databases runs on bare metal with local SSD and guaranteed RAM, IO and CPU. NodeChef also supports a slow query analyzer, continous backups and PITR, replication and high availability for all databases.
