Heroku Set up & Costs 

Source: Github.com

NOTE: You can upgrade this deployment later for use in a production setting, but keep in mind you will need to migrate data from any prior campaigns. Thus it is best to upgrade before you start any live campaigns.

This will cost ~$75 ($25 dyno + $50 Postgres) a month and should be suitable for production-level usage for most organizations. We recommend that if you plan to use Spoke at scale that you use this link to deploy with a production infrastructure from the start!

AWS Set Up Costs 

You can also deploy on AWS Lambda. which is a lot cheaper than Heroku at scale but requires considerably more technical knowledge to deploy and maintain. We recommend this option for large-scale campaigns with tech resources.
