Welcome to AppHarbor. We’re building af Git-enabled .NET Platform-as-a-Service. That means we’ll build, deploy and host your .NET websites for you. To get started all you have to do is to create an account and git push your code to AppHarbor. Your app will be built by our platform and deployed to our managed IIS servers where it will have access to a fully compatible .NET and Windows stack including your choice of SQL Server or MySQL (with more database options to come). AppHarbor will have a free plan to get you started while dedicated hardware, loadbalancing, background tasks and other services can be purchased for your app as add-on services.
Who are we? Well there’s Troels who’s been hacking since age 12 and is a contributor to DotNetOpenAuth. There’s Rune, who — besides being an experienced .NET-hand — is a great fan of Ruby on Rails and Heroku. And there’s Michael who’s been developing .NET websites of all sorts for the last five years.
We’re building AppHarbor because we love C# and ASP.NET MVC and because we think Git is the best versioning system around. Deploying .NET web apps can be kind of a hassle, however. By building AppHarbor we want to solve the problem of deploying .NET web applications once and for all. By offering AppHarbor as a service, we want to take the hassle of deploying your .NET websites of your shoulders too. Non-MVC and non-C# code is welcome too of course.
We’re furiously hacking away on AppHarbor right now and are slowly letting beta-testers onto the platform. If you want to help us test and break our code, go sign up at appharbor.com and we’ll drop you a line once we are ready to welcome you aboard.
