Speed Up App Deployments

I’m using the new Apps features with a Ruby on Rails 6 application. Deployments are taking 10-20 minutes (sometimes 30 minutes) when they were taking about 1-2 minutes on Heroku (it’s a big application).

Right now during business hours I have an App that is deploying and the application has been down for about 20-45 minutes (as now there a ruby bug causing it to continuously deploy).

At this point I’m about to switch the application back to Heroku because we simply can’t run a business with a crashing server.

Has anyone else had this experience and if so is there any solution?

@support - these deploys are BRUTAL. Please. Please.

I had the same issue. So many unnecessary build steps are taken place. Even a simple react app took 30 mins to build which takes like 2-3 min on my system. Also need something like AWS Fargate to build as sometimes we need higher resources during build time.

Really disappointed in the ability build of digitalocean app platform, it extremly slow.It pending 40 minutes at add label process…the problem from 2020 has not improved yet
