Divio or Heroku ?
Heroku is great - but for Django developers, we think Divio fits you even better.
We have some things in common
Like Divio, Heroku is a platform as a service.
Like Divio, Heroku offers you scalable, efficient, containerised hosting.
Like Divio, Heroku is trusted and well-regarded.
Like Divio, Heroku pipelines compliment your workflow.
But if you're a Django developer, our optimised service, workflow and tools just can’t be beaten, because everything we do is built for Django.
|Optimised Django hosting||Heroku offers hosting for a variety of languages: PHP, Ruby, Java and others. Divio Cloud is built in Django, by Django experts and is dedicated to Django hosting. It’s built around the needs of Django developers and optimised for their work.|
|Portable||Heroku’s dynos run only on their own infrastructure. Divio Cloud’s containers can run on your server, on another Docker host, on your local machine - anywhere there’s a Docker machine to run them. You’ll never be locked-in to Divio Cloud.|
|Desktop application||The Divio App integrates directly with the cloud, allowing site managers to control and deploy sites using a friendly native application.|
|Command line interface||Both platforms offer a comprehensive command-line tool to interact with the cloud, manage servers and deployments, and more.|
|Ready-to-go sites||A Divio project can be ready-to-go right away, with applications installed and hooked up, with a variety of optional configurations to choose from, even including complete frontend frameworks.|
|Git based projects||Git-based projects allow you to fork and merge your project, roll back its history, and enjoy a modern project management workflow.|
|Web based package management||Heroku applications can only be installed, configured and kept up-to-date by backend developers. On Divio Cloud, the Addons system allows you to do all of this through the control panel.|
|Fully configured projects||On Heroku, you need to set up and connect the database, configure storage, and so on. Divio Cloud does this for you. All the layers of our projects are fully-configured: application, database, storage, web-server.|
|Pre-configured add-ons||On Heroku, you’re responsible for configuring addons such as Celery or ElasticSearch. On Divio Cloud, they’re set up and ready to go, in a configuration optimised for Django projects.|
|Advanced user management||On Heroku, you will need to take care of user management for your sites. On Divio Cloud, you can manage and delegate responsibilities for project management and even create Django admin users for your sites.|
