Choosing your `--cloud` provider on Gigalixir

One cool thing about gigalixir is that you can choose both cloud platform and the datacenter/region where you’d like to install your app.

By default gigalixir create will put an app in Google Cloud Platform.

But what if you already have infrastructure that you want to take advantage of on AWS in the us-east-1 region (this is where heroku is by default putting it’s servers)?

Well you can change providers with the --cloud flag and the region with --region flag.

gigalixir create -n gigatilex --cloud aws --region us-east-1

AWS it is!
