I suggest you ...

Multi-tier (more than one server for my application, load balancer, web servers, database server...)

I would love to have the option of setting up a multi-server application for more targeted and cost effective scaling. For instance, Say I could create a Wordpress site with a dedicated DB server, a dedicated load balancer, and a dedicated Web server. As my site grows, I can scale the specific part that is needed. If my site is gets a lot of views (reads), but doesn't make many writes, scaling my existing web server (or adding another instance) may be what's needed. If I'm running a WooCommerce site and start pushing the limits of my db server, increasing the resources or implementing replication might make more sense. It would be really great to have that level of control when growing a site.

    This is very nice but the problem is, cloudway is very expensive when you go to big plans, I think this is the biggest inconvenience that cloudway has, that after the medium server is already very expensive and server scale starts to be expensive. I know a lot of people who have a blog that do not go to the cloudway just because in the future it's expensive (when you change to a big plan). And this is an expensive function, in cludway it will surely be very expensive.

    Hi all,

    Finally we have this in private beta in the form or a managed private Kubernetes cluster. We are running a number of customers on top of it (up to millions of visits per day) and gathering feedback.

    Currently the cluster product is running only on top of Google Cloud but we plan to expand availability.

    This will be a high touch service for people overflowing the current platform and that need much higher levels of scalability and availability.

    We don't have an ETA for public availability yet.

    Any idea on when this might be available? I got a couple of people who might be interested then this if the performance can be better than a standard server running laravel.

    @Admin @Cloudways do we have an update on this? Please keep us in the loop. Many are waiting on this.

    Something that would set Cloudways apart from other hosts is to give customers the tools to create a fault tolerant solution. A lot of the parts already exist externally, but there are components that have to be done at the hosting level such as database replication.

    There are a lot of unhappy customers at other hosts (e.g. shared hosting) because those hosts do not engineer their networks against DDoS. And this is a huge opportunity for Cloudways to gain customers.

    I've been building a rather large multi-tenant web app and this would be awesome!

    Hey @Cloudways

    On 30 March 2017 you said "We expect to have an alpha version available at the end of the second quarter".

    Hows that Alpha version going?
