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.
