How to easily and quickly deploy purpose specific servers?
Posted May 14, 20144.7k views
I'd like to have the ability to easily launch prebuilt purpose specific (ex. ftp, web, mysql) server configurations in different regions.
My organization's users would request for example an FTP server in NYC1 with a certain CPU/RAM/SSD config (DO standard plan) and have it ready for use within minutes.
I assume snapshots would be a solution? I'm however new to this type of development and would like to get input on how this could be setup in other ways without being dependent on DO snapshots.
Any suggestions welcome!
You can spin up a new droplet, install and configure an FTP server on it, and snapshot it. Then, whenever you want to spin up a new FTP server, just create a new droplet that is based on the FTP snapshot.
