Heroku vs Scalingo: What are the differences?

Developers describe Heroku 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. On the other hand, Scalingo is detailed as "French Docker based Platform as a Service". Scalingo is a Docker native Platform as a Service. You just have to push your code, our platform takes care of the rest.

Heroku and Scalingo can be categorized as "Platform as a Service" tools.

Some of the features offered by Heroku are:

  • Agile deployment for Ruby, Node.js, Clojure, Java, Python, Go and Scala.
  • Run and scale any type of app.
  • Total visibility across your entire app.

On the other hand, Scalingo provides the following key features:

  • git push based workflow
  • PostgreSQL as a Service
  • MySQL as a Service
