Now enables you to deploy a Dockerfile, seamlessly building and starting up your deployment in seconds. To this end, we first synchronize the files in your project's directory and build it in the nearest datacenter.
To decide what files to include or exclude for Docker deployments, we honor .dockerignore if present, or fall back to .gitignore.
Until today, we treated these two files as if they had the same semantics. As of Now 11.1.15, however, we now feature full support for the .dockerignore specification, which introduces the ability to use it as a whitelist.

During the week of April 2nd, ZEIT became the target of frequent Denial-of-Service attacks targeting our core infrastructure.
The affected datacenter was sfo1. We did not experience any downtime in our newly announced Brussels (bru1) datacenter. Deployments that were scaled to that region were therefore served uninterrupted.
