            • Add basic Postfix install through Manifest file

              I will mention Sendgrid but it's same for other services like Mailgun, Amazon SES etc.

              Setting up Sendgrid SMTP for use with ActionMailer is easy and works fine when the background workers are added to the mix. However it doesn't scale well in the long run. The best practice is to use e.g. Postfix mail transfer agent (MTA) and relay to Sendgrid. Rails can then simply use sendmail and all SMTP queueing and heavy-lifting is done by Postfix.

              Here's the excerpt from the Sendgrid integration docs:

              "A local mail server, such as Postfix, is the most robust way to send…

              • Elasticsearch monitoring

                Seems that when elasticsearch service goes down (is killed) it is not monitored and restarted.

                    Looks like virtual machines are unable to properly access the internet (i.e. external databases). We currently have to manually activate the 'Instance IP address' in the Azure portal to make it work.

                    • Implement lower-tier offering

                      I love the simplicity of deploying apps with your service. Just a little bit of config, and then I don't need to worry about anything.

                      Once it's deployed, however, you begin offering some services that I don't need... and often have trouble justifying paying for. I don't need automatic scaling, monitoring, or backups.

                      It would be great if you considered offering a lower-tier service at a reduced cost that just deployed apps and let us manage them ourselves. A dashboard of all my apps would be enough for me to manage my low-traffic sites on my own, and it might…

                      • Support Vultr as a hosting provider

                        I have just started using Vultr.com and seeing pretty impressive performance improvements over Digital Ocean. Looks like its got a very similar API so would be great to have this as a supported cloud hosting provider.

                            • Restore the option to backup databases to S3

                              We used to be able to use unmanaged backups to backup our databases to S3. That option is now gone and all our unmanaged backups get backed up to /var/cloud66/backups on the local server where the database resides. That's like backing up my computer and then putting that backed up data on the same computer that I was trying to back up.... hm... what?

                              It seems like you are giving us two choices: managed and unmanaged, but in reality there's only one choice because the other one doesn't even make sense. I strongly urge you guys to bring the old…

                                  • Allow to clone stack through the API

                                    It would be nice to be able to not only create a stack from the API but to also clone an existing one.

                                    We would like to be able to build on-demand stacks and cloning an existing one would make our life easier since we would not have to configure services and env variables.

                                    Ideally the endpoint would allow us to specify host configuration (instance type, region, ...)

                                      • Add support for solr search

                                        Solr Search is a reference search engine based of the apache lucene project and one of the oldest supported search engines for rails. Adding support for it would be really awesome, as it needs to be updated whenever a model is updated and when searches are done. By having it within the cloud66 solution we would have lower latency updates.

                                        • Cron job configuration through manifest

                                          Creating cron tasks through the interface works great with the error handling etc attached. If we do this through whenever gem or our own cron we don't get the nice c66 features. So it would be great if we could configure the crons in cloud66 manifest and have them behave as c66 cron job.

                                          Right now I have to manually add the jobs in the UI in the staging env, then remember to manually add them again when we deploy to production and then remember to manually add them again in the case of server rebuild.
