Fly.io Alternatives

Here are some alternatives to Fly.io:

  • Scaleway

    Scaleway's serverless containers might be a good alternative if you're looking for an EU-based provider. However, they don't offer nearly as many data center locations as Fly.io.

  • DigitalOcean

    DigitalOcean's App Platform offers a similar managed experience to deploying container-based applications, and you get access to the rest of their managed services such as databases, caches, and object storage.

  • Railway

    Railway is a good alternative to Fly.io if you're looking for a similar developer experience and managed database offerings. However, they don't yet offer as many datacenter locations and instance configuration options.

  • Render

    Render offers more managed services under one platform. For example databases, caches, cron jobs, and background workers. However, the cost to run an equivalent app will be generally higher on Render.
