Fly.io: Geographic App Deployment with Kurt Mackey

Software Engineering Daily

Latency is the time it takes to get from point A to point B. In programming, this might be the time from a user selecting their photos library to the pictures reaching their computer screen from the database.  Fly.io is a simple platform for running full-stack apps and databases close to your users. Some available features include provisioning CPU, memory and storage based on your app’s demand, zero-configuration private networking and global load balancing, metrics and alerting, and managing SSL certificates at any scale. Fly.io beta is launching highly available PostgreSQL clusters with a single command and creating read replicas in different cities. In this episode, we talk with Kurt Mackey, Social Media Manager at Fly.io.

56: Fly-ing Elixir Close to Users with Kurt Mackey

Thinking Elixir Podcast

We talk with Kurt Mackey, founder at Fly.io, about what makes the Fly platform unique and why hosting Elixir applications there makes a lot of sense. They started out looking to make a better CDN for developers and this pushed them to try deploying Full Stack applications closer to users, not just the static assets! We learn about the tech behind the networking, how databases can be moved closer to users, and how LiveView is even more awesome when it is close to users. Kurt also shares what he sees as the future for databases as the industry continues to move into globally distributed applications.
