Porter Alternatives

    Porter is described as 'alternative to Heroku that runs in your own cloud (AWS, GCP, DigitalOcean, etc). Get started on Porter without the overhead of DevOps and fully customize your infra later when you need to'. There are more than 100 alternatives to Porter for a variety of platforms, including Online / Web-based, Linux, SaaS, Windows and Mac. The best alternative is DigitalOcean. It's not free, so if you're looking for a free alternative, you could try Heroku or Kubernetes. Other great apps like Porter are OpenShift (Freemium, Open Source), Linode (Paid), Vultr (Paid) and CapRover (Free, Open Source).
