Deploying to the DARKSIDE

HEROKU

GONDOR

GOOGLE APP ENGINE

WINDOWS AZURE

THE GOOD(-ISH)

Staged Deployments

Microsoft Infrastructure

Deployment options

Data centres everywhere

Probably easy if you use Visual Studio

THE BAD

Signing up

Yep. Credit card required, phone number verification, must create MS account, must provide address, must agree to some "interesting" terms

Everything seems slow

Static files handled manually

THE REALLY, REALLY BAD

Having your dependencies in your repo
cp -R ~/.virtualenvs/azure/lib/python2.7/site-packages/* ./site-packages/

No ability to run management commands

MySQL or MS SQL Server

Configuration nightmare

UBUNTU SERVERS, SERIOUSLY
