How it works



We get on call to understand your application stack, and propose the migration plan.



We setup your entire stack on AWS using Kapstan.



Once your applications are up and running on AWS, we test and verify that everything is working as expected.

Developer features


Programming language

Kapstan uses containers for deployment, supporting various programming languages.

Heroku's build packs limit language flexibility and add complexity.


Application cost visibility

Kapstan tracks application costs per service, helping teams manage budgets effectively.

Heroku requires add-ons for cost visibility, adding complexity.


Application Performance Monitoring (APM)

Kapstan's built-in APM provides real-time visibility into API latency, success rates, and request counts with no additional setup.

Heroku requires add-ons, configuring agents, and additional logins for APM.


Preview environments

Kapstan's preview environment provide unparalleled velocity to development teams to test and ship features.

Heroku's traditional approach of deploying and testing in a shared environment is painful and hampers the developer productivity.

Kapstan allows us to efficiently handle DevOps with just one engineer, eliminating the need for a dedicated team. Provisioning infrastructure like Kubernetes, Kafka, and databases is as simple as a click. We easily run and monitor cron jobs, receive real-time notifications, and maintain excellent production health observability.

Kapstan’s no-code solution cut our deployment time, letting us run smoothly without a full-time DevOps engineer in our early-stage startup.

We at RevAmp have been using Kapstan for our infrastructure management with app deployment. It needs very little to no expertise in AWS and Kubernetes deployments, which couldn't have been possible without Kapstan.
