We are building neetoDeploy, which is a Heroku alternative. We recently wrote a blog about how the project started and how we designed the system. Here are some of the new features, enhancements, and optimizations which were recently launched.
1. Database exports
The first feature we're excited to announce is database exports. With this feature, you can now make backups of your databases. To use this feature, navigate to your Postgres addon's "Export" section.

2. Scheduled database exports
Along with the ability to export manually, you can now set up automated exports of your Postgres database according to a schedule that suits your needs.
To use this feature, navigate to the "Settings" part of your Postgres addon, and see the "Schedule Export" section. From there, you can choose the timing of your exports.

3. Database metrics
You will now see some basic metrics of your Postgres databases. For now, we are showing the number of connections, table size, row size, commit count, and of course, the total size of your database.
4. Multiple addons
The initial version of neetoDeploy only supported a single addon of each type. This limitation has been removed, and multiple addons of the same type can be added. For example, your app can have multiple Postgres addon instances or Redis instances. Depending upon the scale of your app, you now have the flexibility to add/remove more addons.
5. neetoDeploy CLI
An experimental CLI tool has been built, and we have started using it internally. Currently, it allows us to set config vars of apps and run the console. We will experiment with it, and it will soon be available for public install. Take a look out for our monthly updates here!

6. Migrated neeto staging apps to neetoDeploy
In other news, we migrated all our neeto staging apps from Heroku to neetoDeploy. They have been running well to the point that we deleted all the old Heroku instances.
You can follow neetoDeploy on Twitter. neetoDeploy has not been launched for everyone yet. If you want to give it a try, then please send an email to [email protected]. neeto has many other products for you to check out.
