Sad to see Heroku is dropping their free teir. I have used @Railway to test deployments and it is a great alternative

You might be wondering...
Does Railway have a pipeline workflow to spin up a staging environment, to then promote it to production?
Yes! We call them Ephemeral Environments.
Where do I set the size of my deployments?
You don't. We automatically scale vertically to meet your requirements at all time. Worried about a traffic spike? We got you.
Do you support workers?
Yes, it's just an unexposed Service. To make it a webserver just attach a domain to it.
Do you have 100% feature parity with Heroku?
No, we're different in some ways. However, let us know what you think is missing. Although we can’t promise to get to everything, your feedback helps us determine the priority of what we work on.
Do Free Plan services sleep after inactivity?
No. Your app stays online unless you want it to be offline.
Crafting software should be fun; learning AWS and K8s isn't. Join 75 thousand users and hundreds of companies who moved to Railway.
If you want a heroku like experience, but way better and without the outages, migrate to @Railway in seconds.
I assure you it will be worth it!
heroku killing their free tier wow. everyone should go use @Railway instead, it’s time.
I've recently moved to @Railway and it really is next level. Speed, ease of use, and pricing.
Now that Heroku seems to be dying by a thousand cuts, perfect time to switch with 1 click imports
Successfully migrated all my services from @Heroku to @Railway , thanks @FarazPatankar13 for the great help.
Reducing my monthly bill from $70 to around $4.
First app moved from Heroku to @Railway ...zero downtime, 10 minutes to move everything!
I finally moved @heypresents to @Railway from Heroku. I tinkered with @render, but the DX was much better with Railway for what I was looking for. Would recommend 🚆
Moved http://bibliothekai.ktema.org from Heroku to @Railway. Took ~10 minutes (excluding my Postgres migration screwups), cut cost by 70%.
