Galaxy Developer Edition is made for developers who have made personal, or project apps with Meteor, and are looking for a cloud platform from which to manage and operate it. Meteor will charge $0.035 per GB, per hour for the Developer Edition, which it says equates to around $13 each month. This is limited to five 512MB containers.
Galaxy Developer Edition introduces new prices and services suitable for more developers building apps with Meteor
In the announcement blog post, developers are told apps can still be deployed with one command, and metrics will be available, giving CPU and memory use, number of connections, and more during a five-minute window.
It’s early days for the Galaxy Developer Edition, and Meteor is staggering the launch, meaning interested developers must apply for access first. “We want to make sure that everybody who runs apps on Galaxy has an outstanding experience,” it’s stated in the post, “That means we need to onboard new customers to the system incrementally, instead of opening the floodgates all at once.”
