Bring Your Own Images (BYOI) for Rails

BYOI Overview

Bring Your Own Images benefits for Rails

  • Because custom server images can have all the libraries and components required by your application pre-installed, such as languages and frameworks, they can dramatically reduce the time for a new server to be provisioned.
  • You can use these images to quickly start servers on supported cloud providers. This means you can scale up dramatically faster. It also makes it possible to freeze a server (with a cloud image or snapshot) and create another server based on that image.
  • It gives developers the flexibility to choose a server that fits better in their infrastructure, rather than relying on generic Ubuntu servers. This allows you to maintain exotic or non-standard configurations more easily.
  • AWS
  • Google Compute Engine
  • DigitalOcean
