Module of the Week: 

Role Export

The Role Export module allows roles to have machine_names and generates a unique role id (rid) based off of the machine_name. Roles can be exported with Features and get the exact same rid if imported on other sites. Because of this unique rid there is no need to create plugins per contrib module that use the rid in their export code, such as Views, Ctools, Rules, etc. References to this role id will not break on other sites.


Great podcast! Thanks for that.
As a small Drupal shop owner I am also keep tracking and searching the best solution, if there any..
Just tried DigitalOcean which is really easy and great documented!
Also mention Aberdeen and PlatformSH, like getpantheon & acquia.
Also Bitnami which is a great solution.
