??Section's Latest Platform Enhancements Make it Easy to Stand Up and Deploy Mastodon at Scale
Section, the leading cloud-native hosting platform, today announced it is making it easier than ever to deploy and scale a Mastodon server; in just a few clicks, developers can use Section's global platform to ensure a superior user experience at a fraction of the cost. With the open-source Mastodon software seeing explosive growth in interest and adoption, communities find themselves looking for solutions that can help run self-hosted social networks for a geographically dispersed base of users. Section's platform automates the management of workloads like Mastodon using easily adjusted, rules-based parameters, making it ideally suited to easily distribute and scale these Mastodon instances globally. Simultaneously, the company has announced support for Persistent Volume storage, better enabling distributed deployment of Mastodon and other complex workloads.
"For those looking to create their own Mastodon server, the technical headaches, management decisions and ballooning costs that come with getting started can be incredibly debilitating," said Stewart McGrath, Section's CEO. "Even the so-called 'one-click' solutions quickly begin to show their cracks as communities grow and become geographically dispersed. Given the growth Mastodon is experiencing, this requires planning ahead - and Section has customized its platform to make it painless and cost-effective to deploy your Mastodon server at scale."
