Welcome to Cycle’s documentation!
Whether you are new to Cycle or an advanced user, you can find useful information about the features ranging from introductions to advanced features.
What are Containers?
Containers are lightweight, and portable packaged processes. Unlike virtual machines, containers only package the user space, and not the kernel or virtual hardware. Each container has its own isolated user space, allowing several containers to operate on a single host.
Cycle takes container deployment to another level! With a simplistic and user friendly interface, Cycle allows users of all technical backgrounds to properly, and efficiently deploy, manage, and monitor containers.
Cycle’s “all-in-one” feature, means that users will no longer need to use third party services to assist with managing containers. From uploading an image, to scaling capabilities, Cycle strategically takes care of everything.
Being a container native platform, ALL of the features on Cycle were created specifically for containers, opposed to competitors that were originally made for virtual machines, and later modified to accommodate containers.
When it comes to the deployment, management, and monitoring of your applications, Cycle does it all without the need for third party services. Cycle’s features, most importantly its bare-metal infrastructure and container native platform, guarantees excellent performance throughout.
Cycle ensures that users experience peak performance by strategically routing traffic to the geographically closest instances with GeoDNS.
TLS/SSL certificates allow users to encrypt their sensitive communications.
Cycle allows users to automatically scale their containers as traffic fluctuates.
Take comfort in knowing that should your container fail, Cycle will attempt to repair it, while notifying you throughout the process.
