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
Hey @jamilabreu, I’ve been meaning to give render a try, but haven’t yet so I’m not sure I can really compare and contrast at the moment. I’ve chatted with @anuragg in the past, though, and it sounds like they’re doing some really cool stuff!
Maybe someone here can help me? (@anuragg)
I’d like to move a project form Azure to Render, which worked well so far. I created a disk and mount it to my docker container for storing uploaded files.
But how can I access the disk manually? I need to copy some old files to there.
If I connect to the shell and cd to the mounting directory, nothing seems to be there. I thought i could wget them from there…
You should be able to see the files in the mounted directory when you use the Render shell, but only if your service is up and running. Feel free to email us at email@example.com or use our chat at render.com/chat with details if that’s not the case.
