How PaaS works?

PaaS is the abbreviation for Platform as a Service: a cloud computing platform to host any application. Scalingo is a PaaS to deploy yours in 2 minutes!

Scalingo scene 01

We package your code
into a container

Git push your code, your application stack and dependencies are detected and packaged into a Docker image. It's the only thing you have to do from now, just wait for the magic to happen.

Your resources are isolated

We then choose the best physical server available in our cloud to boot a Docker container from the image we previously built.

Dedicated resources are allocated for your application. All your containers are isolated from others.
