How Stormkit is different than Heroku?

Stormkit stands out in its capability to host static websites, single-page applications (SPAs), and serverless functions. Its optimization for performance ensures a smooth journey for JavaScript developers. The platform offers a range of features, including dynamic injection of frontend code, instant rollbacks, feature flags, customizable CDN storage, and trigger functions.

Conversely, Heroku provides a broader application platform that accommodates diverse application types, including web apps, APIs, and beyond. It enables developers to deploy applications constructed with a variety of programming languages and frameworks.

Can I run my Node.js applications on Stormkit?

Not directly, Stormkit is optimized for serverless deployments and provides a serverless computing environment through its serverless functions feature, which allows you to deploy pieces of code that respond to HTTP requests. These functions are stateless and designed to be short-lived. You can use Nuxt.js functions or use plain functions which has same interface as Node.js. If you are looking for long lived executions please contact with us. We can tailor our platform according your needs.

Are you using AWS?

Yes, we leverage specific AWS solutions such as Lambda and S3 to enhance our services. Our approach involves utilizing certain AWS services to minimize dependence on AWS. This strategy ensures our platform's adaptability for potential portability to on-premise environments or alternate cloud providers in the future.

Do you support Next.js?

As of May 21, 2023, we have made the decision to drop serverless support for Next.js. You can still use Next.js but you won't able to SSR.

Why there is no free tier?

At Stormkit, we're dedicated to offering an exceptional user experience through our carefully crafted product. As a self-funded endeavor driven by passionate co-founders, we've invested our energy into developing a solution that truly addresses your requirements.

To maintain our commitment to quality, we're introducing a free trial period. This approach enables us to focus on users genuinely interested in exploring our offering. By providing a free trial, we can better cater to the needs of serious users and offer tailored support and features.

It's crucial to understand that we're entirely self-funded, without external backing. Our product's growth and development rely solely on revenue generated. Opting for the free trial not only lets you experience our product's full potential but also supports an independent, self-funded venture.
