Pierre-Louis, can you give us an overview of your infrastructure set up?

We currently have about 15 services running on Cloud 66, where 10 of them run in the production environment.

What are the benefits of using Cloud 66 on the top of AWS?

Using Cloud 66 allows you to have little knowledge about how things are supposed to work on AWS. You don’t have to worry about how to setup things like your load balancers or security groups. The AWS interface is not really user-friendly compared to Cloud 66. Of course, you can always jump in AWS and fine tune some configuration if you really want to and if you know what you are doing but this is something we didn’t have to do.

Why did you choose Cloud 66 over other available providers to deploy your docker containers?

To be honest, we also looked at Kubernetes. The product is great but was too low level for us considering the little DevOps skills we have.

How are you using Cloud 66 and what are your favorite features?

Our services run on Docker and are configured to pull the code from a git url. The BuildGrid service then builds our image and deploys it on the hosts.

What are your plans for 2017?

In terms of DevOps feature, we would like to be able to build on-demand test servers, for our QA, using Cloud 66. We’ve started looking at Cloud 66 API in order to trigger a test stack building through our chat bot Hubot. This is more like a “nice to have” feature but we think it will make our QA life easier.
