I have quite a few apps running that would benefit from multicore but don’t necessarily need dedicated CPU. I know I can spin up a machine with 4x-shared-cpu but I can’t seem to do that with a regular app.
Yes that’s the plan. It’s more accurate to say that apps are coming to machines.
You an actually try them in early preview now: Preview: Deploying applications on Machines with flyctl
I’ve been using these, it works very well for simple apps right now. Oh, except I think there’s a bug that reset VM size when you run
fly deploy. So make sure you test it before you use it as a workaround.
