Faster cloning of app/server | Instant Cloning | Instant Provisioning
We have a rather large application in which constant development happens. For this purpose we at multiple times have to create multiple clones of the live app for people to work on.
Because of the server size we have, it takes about 30 to 45 minutes to clone one app.
We always tend to do this cloning during neck of the moment and this delay is such a pain.
It would be great if we have something like instant cloning where you get the clone in few seconds instead of an hour.
Any thoughts / suggestions are appreciated.
We have a site with a very database, it's still running a cloning operation over 2 hours later, and for 1.5 hours of that time site performance went from 1.5 second page loads to 30 seconds, with occasional 502s. This is completely impractical and now we're questioning the viability of Cloudways for our large enterprise sites (and this site is running on a dedicated AWS CO 9XL instance). We have not seen live site performance this bad during cloning on other managed WP hosts (we moved it from a Pressidium Enterprise install, over there we had no issues cloning to Staging).
