Hi Serge, if you have an Erlang web application that you want to deploy,
Heroku has buildpack support for a number of OTP versions.
The big downside right now is that you can't do Erlang distribution -
your web app would have to coordinate via a shared resource like a queue
or a database as typical Rails/Java/... apps do. It's an unfortunate
restriction of the platform right now.
The upside is you get one free dyno (linux container) for your app, and
a catalogue of addons that together with the platform take care of
almost all your ops chores.
