FlightFormation Beta

Automatically schedule, scale, and restart your application. Starting at $0/mo.

Reliable automatic scaling

Automatically scale your application in a way that is as simple or as sophisticated as you need. Designed to work with any Heroku application to improve performance and reduce cost, all without any code changes.

Scheduled application restarts

Schedule your application to restart daily, weekly, or whenever you need.

Improve performance and user experience

If your dynos are always scaled to handle your maximum load it’s probably not ideal (and it’s expensive)! Running an application with a higher load during a certain portion of the day? Use FlightFormation to provision more resources for a better user experience when your users are actually online, while also reducing your cost during the slower times.

Cost Estimator instantly shows savings

Automatically scaling your application will render Heroku’s estimated monthly costs inaccurate. Don’t worry! Since FlightFormation allows you to control exactly what you need we can provide real-time feedback of your new monthly dyno costs. Tweak your scaling to achieve the best performance while always knowing your dyno costs.

Works with any app, with no code changes

FlightFormation uses the Heroku Partner API exclusively to constantly monitor and scale your application as you need. You will not need to make any changes to your application’s code, or install any additional packages or libraries. Try today at no risk of having to maintain additional code. If FlightFormation isn’t a great fit for your application, deprovision in one-click without ever having to modify your application.

Simple one-click installation and setup

After a simple installation you’ll be up and running in under 30 seconds. We will instantly import the information about your application to get you started. You don’t even need to know your current dyno configuration, we’ll get all that information for you! Try it with no risk, and know how you will benefit in minutes.
