I’ve been looking for a simple way to deploy my apps for quite some time now – I like coding but don’t want to manage servers, complex container orchestration, certificates, etc.
I just found Render, a really nice platform which takes all that hassle from you and makes deployment dead simple. It looks like they’re quite new and just left an invite-only phase, also their docs don’t cover everything yet, but they support Elixir and it works perfectly well.
The only thing I don’t like is that it’s not possible yet to select the hosting region - everything is being hosted in the U.S. Other regions will follow I guess, as well as disk and object storage.
As it hasn’t been shared on the forums yet, I just thought I’d do it
Here’s the guide for Phoenix deployments: https://render.com/docs/deploy-phoenix-distillery
