I begun testing Bitnami’s MEAN setup on GoogleCloud (60 days free/with credits), alternativelly via MLab free hosting (500mb), and custom setup of the different environments MEAN Cloud Hosting, MEAN Installer, Docker Container and VM
The good thing here seems to be scaling as needed, and a robust tested software ecosystem.
Has anyone experience and maybe some pointers about feasibility of such a setup? Basically what i need is encrypted login/authentication, and some requests from time to time, for pulling and storing item and user related data. As i understand Parse is for encrypted requests, Node.js handles JSON and Parse. Then storage of user and item data with Mongo, the communication via VaRest (JSON or Parse).
Questions i have include
Do i need PHP7, i read it is faster then previous versions, and someone mentioned i need PHP7, but for initial testing it doesn’t seem super important to me.
Do i need to use Google’s AppEngine for app deployments, because currently i need to use a US based managed server for this.
Finally i want to setup a GoogleCloud bucket and store the distribution, based on implementation of the required functionalities through this launcher [FREE] Launchpad - A free, open-source UE4-compatible game launcher - Community Content, Tools and Tutorials - Unreal Engine Forums or maybe Custom Launcher for your game - Community Content, Tools and Tutorials - Unreal Engine Forums
Currently in the process to setup VaRest with 4.11 and establishing a Mongo connection.
