Why you should consider migrating off Heroku to your own servers

RepoBus is a Heroku-like PaaS that works in any cloud. Simply connect your servers and RepoBus will setup a managed runtime allowing you to deploy applications with the same open source buildpacks you use on Heroku.

Save big on cost, up to 60%.

The prices of hardware continues to drop sharply across many clouds but prices on public PaaS providers remain constant. This disparity in the price of the underlying hardware and the markup cost of the service provided by the PaaS provider is simply untenable.

RepoBus provides you and your team a similar PaaS experience based on buildpacks while slashing your hosting bill by up to 60% as you can freely choose the hardware to run your applications.

Better performance and stability.

Almost all public PaaS providers are simply decorated shared hosting environments. With Heroku, you run your workloads on a VPS shared with other Heroku customers. The overload of containers on the VPS can cause several stability and performance issues from time to time which will typically be only noticed by the purest who watches their deployments deligently.

Moving your workloads to a dedicated VPS or Bare metal node not only saves you money, it also ensures consistent performance and stability. You can count on your application responding timely to end user request when they need it the most.

Run just about anything without any limits.

There are no container restarts unless you do so manually or any any other constraints imposed on your deployment such as connections per dyno limits, request timeouts and many others enforced at Heroku. You have the complete freedom to configure and run your deployments however you see fit.

Also, Heroku works well for things that do not write anything to disk. This however, is not practical for all applications out there. Because with RepoBus you own the server, you can now run applications that can write directly to the local SSD of the bare metal or the mounted volume to the VPS.

Run your applications anywhere securely.

RepoBus supports any server that is reachable on the internet. You are no longer constrained to only the regions supported by Heroku. If your application has strict data placement requirements, you can now have the same flexibility of a PaaS in the the data centers that meets your requirements.

For strict high availability requirements, you could easily distribute your applications across multiple clouds. Never put all your eggs in one basket. If one cloud goes down, your app will still be running.

How it works

Dockerfile deployment + Officially supported Buildpacks

In addition to the officially supported buildpacks and Dockerfile deployment, you can deploy using any open source buildpack.

A Complete platform for devs and businesses.
