Fly.io vs Platform.sh

Not all Platforms-as-a-Service (PaaS) are made equal. While Fly.io provides a PaaS equipped with their own hardware and multi-region deployment. It lacks some key features needed for growth and scalability including an efficient developer workflow and robust customer support for larger enterprise clients. Platform.sh provides an alternative to Fly.io with all of those key features and more. Giving development teams peace of mind while accelerating the time it takes to build and deploy applications.
