Since we deployed our very first lines of Python code more than 2 years ago we are happy users of Heroku. It lets us focus on building features rather than maintaining infrastructure, has super-easy scaling capabilities, and the support team is always happy to help (in the rare case you need them).

We played with the thought of moving our computational needs over to barebone Amazon EC2 instances or a container-management solution like Kubernetes a couple of times, but the added costs of maintaining this architecture and the ease-of-use of Heroku have kept us from moving forward so far.

Running independent services for different needs of our features gives us the flexibility to choose whatever data storage is best for the given task.
