Automatic horizontal scaling
This is really a must have function for the app platform. Is there any ETA when this will be available?
VPC with Apps, Droplets and Managed Databases
Being able to integrate Apps into a VPC together with droplets and managed databases, would allow secure / private access to them. Maybe even kubernetes could be integrated.
Allow disc space to be increased without requiring RAM to be increased
We currently have an 80-ish GB database but we really don't need 8GB of RAM. It would be awesome if we could use a 4GB server and just add more disc space
Speed-up MySQL backup process
We have two MySQL clusters 3 and 5 Tb size. The daily backup processes take 6 and 10 hours. Very bad experience while databases are locked for metadata change.
Trigger Component Deployment via API
Being able to rebuild individual components (e.g. to trigger a static site build) from an external system (e.g. a headless CMS) would greatly increase flexibility while also decreasing build time and load. Currently, having the entire application rebuilt every time the static site should update is not the best scenario.
How to get a 10 year long residence documents required
Administrative review is the process in which a visa application is reviewed, even after it has been approved. Before undergoing an administrative review , the visa holder will be questioned on their travel plans and if they have any further intentions of traveling to or remaining in the UK, past or future. After this questioning process, if a visa holder’s answers are satisfactory and they are not considered a risk to homeland security or public safety, then their visa will be renewed for a period of six months. In order to get a 10 year long residence documents required applicants need to provide evidence of residence for the previous 5 years. This can be in the form of rental agreements, utility bills, or other documents that prove that the applicant lives in the UK.
Add support to configure CRON job
We are looking for sending scheduled updates to the users of the application. We are doing I in others platform providers by using configuring CRON jobs. This is a sort of missing feature in App Platform. looking forward to be available soon.
Multiple App Deployments
It would be nice to be able to set up multiple deployments from different branches (for example main and develop, feature branches and even tags) or different image tags.A possible way to do this could be to create the concept of "sub-apps" or "app slots". The main app would be the production one; if there's a web deployment, it would be the one using the domain name as now.Each "sub-app" or "slot" could be(1) manually created, using a different branch or image tag; if there's a web deployment it would prepend a subdomain to the main app domain or(2) automatically created, everytime a branch or git tag is committed; if there's a web deployment, there are two alternatives (2.1) domain is managed by DO, therefore, we can automatically add the subdomain, just like the previous or the main or (2.1) domain is managed externally, so we add the subdomain only for the DO default domain only, which is probably fine if it's for internal use (previews).In addition, it would be nice to be able to "promote" a deployment from "sub-app" or "app slot" into the main app.
Point domains to specific services
I'd like to use multiple domains in one app and point them to different services. Currently, it's only possible to route URL paths to services but that's quite limiting in some regards.
