Render 🇺🇸

Build, deploy, and scale apps with ease

Render is a cloud provider that distinguishes itself from traditional providers by offering a fully managed platform. It provides services such as container based deployments, static sites, cron jobs, background workers, and managed databases.

It's particularly appealing to developers who enjoy the building blocks a platform like Kubernetes offers, but would prefer to offload the operational burden of managing their own infrastructure.

Example customers include Red Bull, Watershed, Equals, Felt.
