Hi everyone, It's so great to be featured here. We weren't planning on launching today but Render won TechCrunch Battlefield yesterday so here we are. Our goal is to be the best cloud provider for developers and startups who've traditionally been neglected by large clouds like AWS. Heroku was great five years ago, but things have stagnated since the Salesforce acquisition, and we're hoping to carry the baton into the next decade and beyond. Happy to answer questions here. You can also join us at https://render.com/chat for live Q&A. Cheers!

@anuraggoel How is it different from netlify??

@achuthhadnoor we run static sites (which Netlify does) as well as backend servers (like Heroku), but all without our users having to manage anything.

@anuraggoel This is awesome thanks for the information and congratulations on the Tech crunch disrupt 🤩🤩
Share
@achuthhadnoor @anuraggoel i got it, but netlify is telling me that backend goes into functions/cloud functions. Same as Cloudflare with workers (KV). Maybe im not your target ?

Been a user for almost 6 months. Render makes you affordably focus on your product and not on deployment and scaling. It’s my first choice when building something new

Been using render for some recent projects and it’s been awesome. Easy to use, performant, pretty powerful. Great support too! I feel like Render is the first thing I’ve used in a long time that fulfills the promise of serverless without many of the drawbacks.

We need to build. Very fast and scalable backend, 7,000 transactions per second. Can you guys handle that?

Can you provide a bit of insight into your global CDN? What provider do you use and how many sites are there? I’m interested in moving my static sites to Render from Firebase which has performance issues.

@rayliverified here's a map of our current POPs:

@anuraggoel thanks, this is better than Firebase which only has 20 or so sites. You’re missing some locations in Brazil and India and South Africa unfortunately

@rayliverified we do plan on adding additional locations/CDNs.
Share
@rayliverified @anuraggoel Please include India POPs. Many startups in India are completely India focused and this will be an important criterion.

Hi, Just discovered them on TechCrunch, I am from Kenya and was considering using render, however I see the only mode of payment is through stripe which is not avialble in my location. Are there alternative modes of payment? Or do we have to wait for 10 years?
