Northflank is the first batteries-included developer platform that doesn’t suffer from the invisible ceilings that hover over its competitors. We could have built all of Slack with Northflank - and we would have, had it been available.

By far the most complete product like this I’ve seen. This is how Kubernetes should be used.

If you’re starting to sweat about clusters, secrets, GitOps, CI/CD, scaling, monitoring, rollouts, or anything in between, this is your answer!

Going into our first steps with Northflank I was of the mindset, “how can it be easier than AWS AppRunner or Google Cloud Run?” but in reality it's much more powerful and user friendly – templates and GitOps are fantastic for keeping configurations in-sync with code repos, whilst instrumentation, metrics and monitoring are top-dollar.

I love the UI. It’s easy to plug and play and bring my own cloud, and I didn’t have to make any changes to integrate with Northflank on my end.

Northflank eradicated all of our DevOps overhead. You only have to provide a Dockerfile to have a secure, production-ready build pipeline and hosting environment. This allows our teams to focus on building great software, with confidence.

I found Northflank while hunting for a Heroku replacement. I've found the platform to be very stable and fairly priced. I deploy updates to my apps on Northflank weekly, and it's been a key factor in my ability to quickly build more side projects.
