About Kool.dev Cloud
The Kool.dev Cloud brings the ease you always thought should exist when deploying web applications running in containers to the cloud.
For developers stepping into the world of cloud-native development, Kool.dev is a game-changer. It bridges the gap between the complexity of container management and the efficiency of cloud-native applications, empowering developers to focus more on creating value and less on managing infrastructure.
The Kool.dev Cloud API was designed with the best developer experience in mind for deploying containers to the cloud. By leveraging your existing local environment structure in
docker-compose.yml and adding a sane and intuitive configuration layer that will feel familiar from the first sight, our goal is to provide a best-in-class offering for cloud platform engineering. This platform allows you to leverage Kubernetes and orchestrate your web applications in the cloud without all the hassle.
Enterprise: You can use Kool.dev Cloud to deploy workloads to your own cloud vendor to keep things compliant - contact us for the "Bring your Own Cloud" offer.
Kool.dev Cloud is the CLI suite of commands that allows you to configure, deploy, access, and tail logs from the applications to the cloud via the Kool.dev Cloud API.
CPU and Memory Resources
Having your application in a container helps isolating its resources and allocate them more efficiently, while scaling up and down seamlessly.
Currently the sizing of containers go by a simple scale:
micro size starts with 128 millicores of CPU and 256Mbi of memory limits. Each size then doubles the previous size limits.
Kool.dev Cloud supports persisting folders across deployments. This is a key piece that facilitates moving legacy applications into containers.
More that you may need
Supporting a wide range of features you will find no limits on any requirements your web application might have. Running daemons as extra containers, scheduling commands like cron jobs, adding hooks to run before or after deployment, viewing logs of running containers, accessing the running container interactively, and much more.
Getting Started Steps
Sign up for Kool.dev Cloud and get your access token.
- You can store your token in your
.envfile if you are using one:
echo "KOOL_API_TOKEN=<my-token>" >> .env
- Or you can store your token in a real environment variable:
export KOOL_API_TOKEN="<my token>"
- You can store your token in your
- Configure your deployment with files directly in your application root folder. For that, you can use
kool cloud setupto help guide you in creating the following files:
kool.deploy.yml- a "mirror" of your
docker-compose.ymlfile, with extra pieces of data for customizing your cloud deployment.
Dockerfile- usually, you are going to need to build your app for deployment if you haven't already.
- Make sure you set up the necessary environment variables for your app to run in the cloud.
- Deploy your application
kool cloud deploy --domain=<your domain>- this will validate and deploy your application.
- Wait for it to finish and then access the provided deployment URL!
- Doing more
kool cloud logs- you can check the logs of your deployed containers.
Access running containers (like SSH-ing in)
kool cloud exec- you can execute commands, including interactive TTY sessions, within your cloud-deployed containers. For example,
kool cloud exec app bashto open a bash in my running container in the cloud.
