I would only get into it if I where willing to pay for the support plan and getting some assurances from the team as to where they are headed. The platform itself is great and can save you a ton of hard work and money. but it's hard to be confidant in it's sustainability.

For how it is used within the organization it is perfectly fine. We use it for benefits, salary, and vacation tracking. It does make it easy to find your information within the system and make changes.

Pros

Nanobox

  • Relatively easy setup. One file named "boxfile.xml" controls all relevant services including there communication ports, routes and build steps.
  • Scaling is easy - you can put everything on one machine, split certain services to dedicated machines and scale services to multiple machines. best of all this can be done at any time with almost zero down time.
  • I have not used this yet, but for a few hundred dollars a month you can get dedicated operational services to help you make your setup even easier and ensure your system is operational.

Cons

Nanobox

  • The company has not been very communicative as of lately. Not much news, no apparent work on missing features.
  • Some components are incomplete as far as some critical features. For example, I use RethinkDB as my database and it's missing critical features like backup and clustering, so It is unusable and they should have made that clear from the get go.
  • The pricing on the support plan is vague. I do have the feeling it is actually well worth the money, but it's hard to form a decisions based without more predictable specific.
  • Seems to me like the platform's future is unclear.

I am not a part of the team that would make this decision but as far as I know they are happy with the platform and how it performs.

Alternatives Considered

The ability to choose your own cloud provider is huge, especially for a small start up like I have. We have a lot of free credit from AWS, Google Cloud, IBM, Azure, etc...The data layer is baked into the system which is better for integration then an external provider.There are also a lot fewer differences between environment as everything is Docker based which gives me the confidence that what works on my machine is going to work in production.Heroku doesn't have good support for Docker containers yet and although Heroku has served me well in the past, it is limited in some aspects.

Return on Investment

Nanobox

  • The platform is saving me a lot of time I would have been wasting on operations instead of development.
  • The platform is saving me a lot of money as I can easily switch between cloud providers to find the best price.
  • I am worried though for the price I might have to pay in case of an unexpected system issue.
  • Hopefully I will be able to pay the support plan before that.
