Hi! It’s been a minute since our last migration check-in.
Over the past few months, we’ve done a lot of talking about migrating everyone off of our old Nomad-based Apps platform and onto the newer Fly Launch platform, built on Machines. We’re nearing completion on that.
At the time I’m writing this, we’re a little bit over 96% migrated. As we sprint to finish as much of the last four percent as we can migrate from our side, we’ve also been looking towards the future (and what this means for the remaining Nomad apps).
We released the manual migration tool at the start of April, and by May, we’d started migrating simple apps automatically. We also pulled the plug on creating new Nomad apps in May.
It’s time to Get Off Nomad for good.
Over the next two months, we want to get rid of Nomad. Like, stop-provisioning-it-on-our-servers get rid of it. We’re going to be running more automated migrations, but anyone who still has Nomad apps should try to get them migrated by Oct 1st. (if this is you, you should be getting an email about this very soon!)
We’ve been working hard to ensure that existing V1 workflows transfer seamlessly to V2. If there’s something we missed or any unaddressed concerns that are blocking you from migrating, please let us know!
At risk of sounding like a broken record, here’s an explanation of the migration process:
Open a terminal inside the directory with your app’s fly.toml file (or, if you don’t have a toml file,
cdinto an empty directory and run
fly config save -a <app_name>to get one)!
Everything should be taken care of automatically, but if you run into any issues, feel free to reply with them in this thread for some troubleshooting help
TLDR: Please migrate your apps by Oct 1st! We want to get rid of Nomad entirely within the next couple months.
