Question

Apps — what is right way to have multiple services

Hey,

I can’t find a guide of some info on how one should architect things with Apps product if there are a bunch of services, like for example — if there is a CMS, an API service, a front facing website. Should this all be bundled inside on app, or is it better to have more apps? And if there are multiple separate apps — are they all sharing one virtual DNS?

Hello,

I could suggest using a single App with multiple services.

A service is a type of component that is accessible via public or internal ports, and running server-side code.

Here is a link to the official documentation on how to manage your App Platform services:

Hope that this helps!

Best,
