Heroku is used to host and run our web application and background processes. Mainly our software team and data science team use Heroku. The software team uses Heroku and various plugins to deploy and monitor the performance of the web applications and background tasks. It is the hosting services ...

    Google App Engine is great if you want to rapidly build and deploy web services and you have the money to spend. It's also great if you have a team of developers, or at least 2 or 3, so if you get stuck then you have multiple people looking into it and trying to figure out how to proceed. It is l...

      Amazon Elastic Beanstalk Review!

      Elastic Beanstalk is a great fit for a product that's already open to using Amazon Web Services, but has a team that does not want to work with environment setup. Furthermore, it's really only a fit for situations where the configuration needed from the team fits within a stack that Elastic Beans...

        Elastic Beanstalk has been around for some time, but it never caught our eye until we started using AWS CodePipeline. … Currently, we use Elastic Beanstalk (EBS) to run applications on our pipeline. Each stage (dev, perf, prod) has its own set of servers defined under EBS. Our current solu...

          Under 100K Monthly Visitors for the next 6+ months? Go with Heroku, not AWS

          Heroku is great if your developer's time is more valuable than your expected hosting bill. I'd put the magic number at 100,000 monthly users for a typical site. If your traffic will be below this for the next 6+ months, then Heroku is a no-brainer over more complex and unwieldy competitors like A...

            App Engine is a fantastic service for developers who want to be able to run their code in an environment that they do not have to provision -- there is no manual server configuration or maintenance, etc, and all the developer needs to be concerned about is how their code works.

              PaaS from Google, give it some code and it will run it and scale it automatically

              It's a good use case to use App Engine when you need to serve traffic to large amount of users, but you should avoid doing any computation on it. It's better to use Compute Engine or Dataflow to process your data. It has a free tier so it's very useful for non-yet-existing startups.

                Compared with Microsoft Azure, Google App Engine requires a more complicated development environment setup. It's not as simple as using Visual Studio 2015 with Azure SDK. There are multiple IDE on the market to choose from for developing apps for Google App Engine. JetBrains may have the best IDE...

                  AWS Elastic Beanstalk makes it very easy for us to deploy the NodeJs applications which we create as part of any project instantly and this enables us to start using Node server without installing any required dependencies on cloud. Also when JAVA REST APIs are developed, the AWS Elastic Beanstal...

                    We use Heroku as our primary hosting service for our web application. It takes care of scaling when it comes to our database size, web traffic spikes, and background jobs. Deployment and maintenance come with ease without having to worry about managing our infrastructure.

                      For small companies that are building a new app or already have one being maintained by a very small team, Heroku is perfect. The price will be affordable and it will totally pay the price of having all the tooling they provide. When you start growing, the platform may become too expensive for th...
