Next-level autoscaling

Why use Judoscale when Heroku has their own autoscaler?

Scale background jobs

Web dynos are only half of your app. Autoscale your worker dynos to ensure job queues don't grow out of control.

Request queue time

Response time varies depending on the endpoint. Request queue time is a better metric for more reliable autoscaling.

Speed

You need your autoscaler to respond as fast as possible. Catch slowdowns before they become a problem.

Precise control

Scale by multiple dynos to minimize disruption. Tweak your autoscaling behavior using our intuitive interface.

Scheduled autoscaling

Need even more control? Judoscale will adapt to the ebb and flow of your traffic, on a schedule you define.

Any dyno type

Judoscale will autoscale Heroku's standard, performance, private, and shield dynos.

Built for your language and framework

We tightly integrate with web frameworks and job queues to provide the most powerful and reliable autoscaler available.

Trusted by 600+ dev teams

We’ve been autoscaling Heroku apps since 2016. We’ve got your back.

    • Judoscale has allowed us to reduce our dyno usage for our primary application down to less than half of what we were using before, which is amazing (and allows us to not have to upgrade our Heroku plan). Thanks for making this, it really is a great little service.

    • If I was the king of the world, I would make it illegal to horizontally scale based on execution time. Scale based on queue depths, people!

    • Judoscale saved me big time yesterday!! I’m new to this and I’m learning on the fly, but you made it very easy.

    • I needed to save on dyno hours at slow times of day/week, but handle the busier times without doing anything manually. Judoscale has given me this peace of mind.

    • I’ve used most of them. Adam’s is the best. I highly recommend it.
