clarify future support of docker on now platform

November 8, 2018 at 6:21pm
It seems zeit is moving away from allowing customers to utilize Docker as a common 'primitive'; would you kindly clarify this?

How are websocket connections going to work on a serverless architecture? I currently send real-time updates (via websockets) to my clients, which is a really important feature of my application.

Regardless websocket connections, i prefer something like Pusher.js for the architecture and API for all platforms.

we'll definitely make that possible. We have many super interesting use-cases for it in mind
Also, in response to feedback here about finding the v1 plans, the great just shipped an improvement:
My usecase requires docker so 🤷‍♂️.
What I don't need is yet another external service for my application to depend upon. What I need is an always-on NodeJS application instance (minimum 1, with the ability to scale as needed) that can handle persistent websocket connections -- unless I'm mistaken and the new architecture will support this.
what happens when you use v1 apps on a v2 plan?

What i mean is looking at Pusher.JS as a successful real-time story to learn from. So we could utilize something like that right from Now v2 !
seems like you're billed on-demand
$0.025/hr
oh yikes, I'll need to downgrade then...
I tried, there doesn't seem to be a way to do that
Gotcha. I suppose then it'd be another proprietary module I'd have to import that would only integrate with Zeit's cloud.
yeah just discovering that too -- that's super concerning. , is there a way to downgrade to a legacy plan? I'm not able to deploy any of my apps to v2 and am now going to be paying $18 per month per deployment
I wonder how many users that upgraded, don't know about this forced on-demand billing and will get a >$50 bill on a supposedly $15 plan
we have a very clear disclaimer on the modal
please email [email protected] and we'll take care of it, no stress

same for you Alin!
not at all proprietary, and not at all specific to our cloud
Meaning: it's just another API, like Stripe
So you will support websockets in v2?

Let me tell you my use case: I'm developing a tcp server to listen to GPS devices to trigger that event to other microservices/lambdas. I hope Now V2 should support this specific use case without relying on 3rd party services like Pusher.js
Edited
Do you confirm we can no longer chose the Premium/Pro/Advanced plans and that we are forced into On demand plan? (Now 1.0)
