I am very new to all these cloud stuff and have always been a traditional monolithic server guy. Every project, I will get a dedicated server or 2 VPS servers, set them all up and go.
For our next project we are thinking of using Cloud Infrastructure and Digital Ocean seems to be a good choice, and part of the reason is we can’t be bothered with configuring fault tolerant servers and such.
So my questions are as follows:
In the App Platform, it says no infrasturcture management required, yet it mentions about horizontal scaling, which I presume would require a load balancer. Does the App Platform comes with a load balancer installed?
The App Platform horizontal scaling is only supported on the Professional tier… so what’s the point of using the basic tier?.. Isn’t horizontal scaling the reason we want to use the App Platform?
Is vertical scaling only limited to max 4CPU and 16GB???
