We run app servers and databases close to end users. Developers deploy their apps to Fly.io (it's about the simplest place to deploy a Docker Image) and use our CLI to launch instances in regions that are most important for their application.

Global Heroku

What is your company going to make? Please describe your product and what it does or will do.

We're building a global hosting service. Devs package up their project, ship it with our CLI, and then we scale it up and down in whichever cities they have users in.

How far along are you?

We have a prototype running production traffic for a handful of big customers. They've been paying us for about 8 months -- currently at about ~$59k ARR.

The self service, bottoms up version of our platform is just about ready. We'll potentially launch it before a yc interview.
