really bad cold boot times?
^^ have you been able to measure/quantify at all? Or just “felt” experience (which, to be clear, is as important). Just wondering out loud if we can start attempting to benchmark these things. Definitely agreed I often feel like cold boot can be slow on both Netlify and Vercel.
Of note → I think DB also plays a significant role. Might be worth testing to see if higher performance DB also seems to resolve issues around “cold start”.
Vercel update → it’s still being tested in development, but Vercel will soon be using a different tool at build time to package a Redwood projects’ API/functions. In tests so far there’s been a 60% reduction in total size of Graphql.js function This should have a positive effect on cold start time reduction.
Render → at one time I know @peterp had success with a self-hosting setup on Render. I’m also seeing https://fly.io/ come up in conversations but cannot confirm a successful Redwood use-case (just don’t know if anyone’s tried).
