How it works
1. Connect your Heroku account
Build.io is fully integrated into Heroku and GitHub. Authenticate your Heroku account and choose any of your existing Heroku apps to duplicate and deploy to Build.io.
You can also deploy a new app directly from any GitHub repo.
2. Build.io detects the right buildpack for your project
Build.io builds and deploys your app using the same buildpack recipes that Heroku does, so you can be confident your app will run correctly. This also means we support all the same languages and frameworks as Heroku.
3. Deploy to a trusted cloud, scale and save money
With one click your app is instantly deployed to the Build.io. Today we offer AWS under the hood (with more clouds coming soon). You can be confident your apps will be stable and secure on a cloud you trust. Plus you benefit from autoscaling and lower cost usage based pricing.
Coming soon: Bring your own AWS
You bring the cloud (and get to take advantage of AWS's generous credits) and we manage your apps with a Heroku compatible experience.

Why not just use Heroku?
Heroku is a great managed option that removes many of the devops challenges of deployment. However, it’s only great until you start growing. As soon as you do, you’ll need something more flexible, scalable and affordable.While there’s a host of cloud providers, each come with their own unique set of devops challenges requiring you to configure tons of services to get your application deployed.Build.io gives you the simplicity and familiarity of Heroku, with the added benefit of significant cost savings and more control.
