Where's the $40/month plan? The $100/month?
Also the fact that it doesn't come with the database is off putting. I was under the impression all these months that Galaxy would be a one-stop-shop for Meteor hosting.
Bummer, total bummer. I hope they come out with more middle ground pricing.
That link is to Meteor Up X(development version) which uses Docker just like Galaxy. Once it's stable it'll be merged into Meteor Up. I've been using it for prod/staging pushes and it works great even with SSL.
So unless ur bummed about costs again (i.e. the Compose.io costs on top of Galaxy's costs), U pretty much have everything u need now. It seems soon they will provide a cheaper account.

With the mention of Individual plans coming soon, I'm sure they are after that, too. I think it's more that they didn't make the offering clear, nor make it more obvious that these plans aren't the full shebang.

So yeah, little specs plans are coming too.
500$ a month is cheap when you have revenues. But when bootstrapping an app, it's simply out of the question.
Everyone else is almost in a sort of pricing war, so it really feels very much against the current.
Would it be possible to make a webapp like Meteor in Clojure pretty easily, using CSP go-style channels ang go-threads.
I imagine a function would "broadcast" or "listen to" websocket connections. If the app uses channels for communicating between different go-blocks, server/client contact could use an identical interface. Sending things server-side would be no different than sending things client-side.
Could also be a simple 2-function library.
You would have to do the database code yourself, however.
Microsoft has been busily fighting this notion ( http://blogs.microsoft.com/on-the-issues/2015/04/09/our-lega... ) for a while now. Basically all the tech companies are waiting to find out what happens ( http://www.nytimes.com/2015/09/08/us/politics/apple-and-othe... ) because it means the difference between "US Law applies everywhere" and "US companies can comply with foreign data protection laws". Unfortunately these two things are mutually exclusive.
Are they compliant with any security accountability programs like FEDRAMP/FISMA, ISO 27002, PCI-DSS and HIPAA?
