Self Hosting Exceptionless – Free and Fast!

Self Hosting Exceptionless

Self hosting allows you to run your own instance of Exceptionless, our real-time error, feature, and log reporting tool, on your own systems – FOR FREE!

Not Just Free, but Fast!

When developing Exceptionless 3.0, we put extensive focus on making self hosting much easier, and therefore more viable, for our users.

It is now possible to get a test environment up and running on your local machine in only a few minutes, and production environments can be set up very quickly as well.

Exceptionless V3.0 – Changes to the Build Process, Dependencies, and Self Hosting

version-3-featuredVersion 2.0 was a pretty big rewrite for us, and we’re happy with how everything played out, but that doesn’t mean we’re done!

We’ve been working on 3.0, and it’s ready.

What was the focus, you ask? To make life easier for you! We’ve simplified the build process, removed dependencies, and drastically improved the ease of self hosting.

Introducing Foundatio – Pluggable Foundation Blocks for Building Distributed Apps

Exceptionless Foundatio App Building BlocksIn the process of developing Exceptionless, we realized there was a lack of good, simple, open source solutions for caching, queues, locks, messaging, jobs, file storage, and metrics when building scaleable applications.

We tried an open source Redis cache client for caching, but it went commercial (expensive) and there wasn’t any in-memory implementations. For the message bus, we looked at NServiceBus (good product, high cost, not open source friendly) and MassTransit (local setup a pain, Azure support lacking), but were left disappointed. For storage, we simply could not find a solution that was decoupled and supported in memory, file storage, or Azure Blog Storage.

So, naturally, we built our own!

Meet Foundatio – your key to painless, scalable development and testing for your app! Let’s take a look at some examples, below.

Exceptionless Documentation has Moved & Grown

Exceptionless-documentation-githubThe Exceptionless documentation has moved to GitHub!

Over the past few weeks, we have taken all the existing documentation on the docs subdomain and migrated it over to the respective GitHub repo.

We also pulled out worthy examples, demos, and tutorials from past blog posts and created pages for those, so information is in a more centralized area that is hopefully easier for our users to locate and utilize.

As new features, demos, examples, and clients come online, expect to see them added to the new documentation system and updated regularly. (more…)
