      Review ofClever CloudClever Cloud

      We have recently moved our Playframework app to Clevercloud. It was relatively painless and the few issues we did have was mostly of the RTM type.... in fact, everything came down to minor configuration tweaks on our side... the Clevercloud stack performed flawlessly throughout.

      The Clevercloud team doesn't have a moat of "Level 1 Support" people around their technical experts, who try to fob off support queries with canned responses, like a lot of other hosting companies do.... when you have a technical question it gets answered by a member of the core engineering team, pretty much straight away. They are knowledgeable, think out the box and are willing to entertain non-standard requests (within reason).

      The platform is accessible via a web-based console or a custom CLI. Both are easy and straightforward to use. Changing your scaling strategy (vertical, horizontal or both) is dead simple, as are deployments (git push). We don't use Github, but I understand things are even easier if you do. The infrastructure also seems quite robust (a little early to tell for sure) and is certainly performant.

      For us as primarily software developers who do server admin, etc. mostly in self-defence, the Clevercloud platform and team is heaven sent. It's like having your own data centre, run by your own team of dedicated devops ninjas... at a fraction of the price and none of the HR issues 😄

      I adopted node.js the year it came out. I have hosted my experimental and general purpose sites on many cloud hosting services, including ones that don't exist any more.

      Clever Cloud has been by far the best experience yet. There was a brief, steep learning curve, but I had excellent personal support from Quentin himself and several other excellent techs.

      I have high confidence in this service and I will recommend it to my associates and expect to deploy large scale sites soon. All I can say is good job and well done! They do everything right, and its a breeze tracking and controlling many sites.

      I work as a freelancer and I'm used to pick the right tool for the right job. As a result I have projects in Node.js, Play framework, JEE with multiple DB engines (postgresql, mysql, couchbase, mongodb)… Using a PaaS with native support of these stacks make me save lots of time. I can also setup beta environments to share ongoing work with my clients before prime-time. Deployment fits well in my workflow (git push). The blue-green deployment process saved my ass several times when I needed to deploy fixes during a surge of traffic.

      The support is quick to answer and takes feedback into account.

      The platform is really easy to use, everything works as expected, no surprise. The first app I deployed was a Spring Boot app; in less than an hour, I've been able to write the hello world app, subscribe and deploy.

      The pricing is fair, and you pay for your use only (no hidden cost such as app storage or something like that).

      And the biggest point: the support is awesome. If you miss something, just ask: they will give you the help you need.

      To sum up: give a try, and I'm pretty sure you will never go back.

      We use clever to host a CRM and everything is cool in my experience; a lot of tools to deploy in a few clicks, MySQL ? 2 clicks. A web app for your CMS ? 3 clicks. Deploy a new version? 1 git push.

      Just easy to setup, easy to maintain, easy to engage new developer on this stack, and if you need some help, ping them and see how fast your question we be answered, at night, on weekends...

      OH, and your know what? It just works all the time, and pricing is fair.

      Guys: You Rocks !

      Elastic Beanstalk gives us a managed platform for our front end servers to make sure that traffic is never overloading our servers and that deployments are always successful.

      Elastic Beanstalk manages our environments. We rely on it to manage rolling out new versions of services.
