I’m on a dedicated plan (not australia) and I will say that I’m very happy with this investment. I love bubble because of it. When you consider what your getting for even just a basic plan, it’s a steal at the price!
- Unlimited apps on your dedicated server (as memory permits)
- Updates (controlled updates)
- Faster UI / Editor (Big relief)
- Faster front end for customers (and auto-bind) / great customer experience
- Prioritized support from bubble team
- Security / 24/7 monitoring
Everything runs a lot faster (even the editor) and I don’t experience the same issues as the cluster, I find i’m well insulated from all that noise. I’ve never had an issue where my front end has gone down and my customers have not been able to access my services.
When I have a system questions or a potential bug concern, I fill out the form and always hear back from someone within a short period of time. The ticket gets sent to the excellent bubble team and escalated to the appropriate individual. I even heard back from @emmanuel once! They work hard to solve the problem. A couple times it took them a few days to push out a patch, but this is very reasonable.
Now, we can’t abuse the bubble support team as they are a small, but growing, team that is dealing with a lot. On the dedicated plan, you will get a response a lot faster that any other plan. However, I reserve them for system related issues and not programming / development related issues. For programming / development, reach out to gurus like @romanmg ( https://coachingnocodeapps.com/) or @copilot ( www.cobubble.com) for help. They are both experts with bubble. Also search hard in the forum as a lot of my questions have been solved.
In the end, if you want performance, get out your wallet and rent a basic dedicated server. It will make a world of a difference in bubble. Even just try it out for a few months to see if it meets your expectations.
I’m really impressed with bubble, the bubble team, the plugin community, and the high level roadmap that bubble is working on.
