Heya.

 

Here https://github.com/pawelsawicz/vagrant-dontstarve I've created vagrant configs (for now only for a Azure) basically it allows you to spin up VM without any trouble of configuration of OS.

 

As I said now it works only with Microsoft Azure, but in next day I will add next providers such a local VirtaulBox or VMWare. (All you need to do is vagrant up) :)

 

If you have any questions let me know, documentation at github can be a little bit uncompleted will try to make it better in a few day.

 

Cheers,

Pawel

Heya again,

 

As I promised, I have added new provider for vagrant-dontstarve, which is VirtualBox https://github.com/pawelsawicz/vagrant-dontstarve#virtualbox-localy.

 

What does it mean ? It means that by having only virtualbox (https://www.virtualbox.org/) and vagrant (https://www.virtualbox.org/) on your machine you can spin up ubuntu VM on your PC with DST Server by one command "vagrant up --provider=virtualbox" no extra action needed!

 

If you have any questions let me know.

Awesome work!  I had actually thought about testing out Azure for our own servers- but was too lazy to setup a new image :-)

 

Azure and AWS are quite expensive. Basically instead of having one server per VM you could try to ship it as a containers by using https://www.docker.com/. So it means that you could have one big powerful VM with OS and inside of this a thousands of containers with servers. https://www.docker.com/whatisdocker

 

Maybe in a few days I will prepare something based on Docker and DST.

We use  AWS for our Rhymes With Play and development servers and DigitalOcean for our general servers.   We are running a single instance per VM.  This technology choice doesn't scale very well,  so these servers are mostly for testing and experimenting.    A service like Docker might help us create on demand servers- which have many advantages.  An example of this would be how Valve hosts all CS:GO competitive servers,  this way they can ensure the server is not running any modifications or cheats.
