Polished Hosting now supports deploying apps with up to 32 GB of RAM. This new high RAM option is for Shiny apps that require compute intensive R calculations (a common requirement of Shiny apps that run simulations and/or predictive models). We also recently added a smaller 16 GB RAM option, so 2, 4, 8, 16, and 32 GB RAM options are now available on Polished Hosting. Pricing is based on the selected amount of RAM, so only allocate the amount of RAM necessary to run your Shiny app.
In addition to the ability to deploy apps with more RAM, we made several other updates to Polished Hosting. The most significant updates were:
- Support for 6 more regions. Deploy your Shiny app to the closest region to your users to reduce latency. A full list of all regions is available here.
- Fixed a long standing bug where apps with large UIs would sometimes throw a rate limit error on the initial start up.
- Significantly decreased Shiny app start up time.
