Firebase Hosting vs Heroku: What are the differences?
Developers describe Firebase Hosting as "Production-grade web content hosting". It is production-grade web content hosting for developers. With a single command, you can quickly deploy web apps and serve both static and dynamic content to a global CDN (content delivery network). You can also pair it with Cloud Functions or Cloud Run to build and host microservices. On the other hand, Heroku is detailed as "Build, deliver, monitor and scale web apps and APIs with a trail blazing developer experience". Heroku is a cloud application platform – a new way of building and deploying web apps. Heroku lets app developers spend 100% of their time on their application code, not managing servers, deployment, ongoing operations, or scaling.
Firebase Hosting belongs to "Static Web Hosting" category of the tech stack, while Heroku can be primarily classified under "Platform as a Service".
According to the StackShare community, Heroku has a broader approval, being mentioned in 1883 company stacks & 5306 developers stacks; compared to Firebase Hosting, which is listed in 12 company stacks and 6 developer stacks.
