  • You can run an instance either with a cloud provider, a VPS or dedicated server or even locally using a built-in ngrok integration.
  • Follow a few short steps and get setup on top of cloud providers and run for pennies a day with built-in Heroku and BackBlaze integrations, even with little technical knowledge
