Is there a Heroku for Elixir?

We’re currently using Digital Ocean to do our deployment of a Phoenix app. We decided against Heroku because it doesn’t enable the kind of scalability that Erlang provides (Heroku dynos can’t talk to each other).

Is there a a good service out there yet that allows for easy, automated, scalable deployment (like Heroku) but is OTP-scale friendly?

Thanks @jesse! Glad you created that service :slight_smile:
