How it works

With Shuttle you can take any Rust service code, and have it ready for deployment by adding a single annotation to your main function.

Your code is packaged and sent to Shuttle where it is compiled and deployed. After a few seconds, your app is already running in the cloud.

You can then add more annotations that control cloud resources. Adding components like databases, secrets or storage is as easy as adding arguments to a function.

The next time you deploy your app, Shuttle provisions and configures the resources you need. In minutes, you can build complex and scalable apps on industry-standard AWS products and never have to touch the AWS console.

use rocket::{get, routes};

fn hello() -> &'static str {
    "Hello, world!"

async fn init() -> shuttle_service::ShuttleRocket {
            .mount("/", routes![hello])

Deployed my second service with Shuttle and I really like it! It's fast and integrates well with cargo, so I can focus on the Rust code instead of the deployment. Well done!

Shuttle is hands down the best way to deploy a rust app quickly, safely, with the ability to scale. It has a variety of frameworks supported, and the community surrounding it is incredible. Heroku for Rust but better!

You soon realize Shuttle is much more than just a host for your app. It's your Rust framework for the cloud; Infrastructure as Crates! This puts Shuttle in front of everything else I've tried. I couldn't be more happy!

Mind-blowing! What a huge addition to the Rust ecosystem! I'm sure this will be a driveway to get more people into Rust.

I tried migrating my project from heroku to Shuttle and it works perfectly! Looking forward to more of it


Build the Future of Backend Development with us

Join the movement and help revolutionize the world of backend development. Together, we can create the future!


Shuttle revolutionizes backend development by saving you valuable time. With our infrastructure from code approach, you can provision resources directly within your Rust codebase. Say goodbye to complex config files and the need to navigate through the AWS console. With a single line of code, your resources are ready. This efficiency translates to faster development cycles, allowing you to focus on building your application instead of managing or learning how to manage infrastructure.

Yes, Shuttle is open source enabling developers to not only use but also contribute to our platform. We believe in the power of open collaboration and transparency.

We build and deploy every project in its own container. This gives you safe isolation from other users, and also across all the projects that are owned by your account.

You can provision a static folder and serve your frontend counterpart seamlessly.

We believe Rust is the language of the future because of the safety guarantees Rust provides and the efficiency of running Rust code. Also, with Rust you build once and everything just works - saving you tons of time on maintenance. And Shuttle makes the experience of building your backend with Rust better than anything you can find for any other language.

We use Stripe for payments, providing a secure and easy way to pay for our services. You can access and manage your invoices and billing details in your Stripe dashboard. You can adjust your plan and billing information with just a few clicks.

Absolutely! You can upgrade or downgrade your plan at any time to better align with your project's requirements. Whether you're expanding or scaling back, we adapt to your needs, ensuring you have the resources necessary to succeed.

If you choose to cancel your subscription, you'll still have access to your existing resources until the end of your billing period. After that, your access to premium features and resources associated with your subscription will be downgraded to the free Community tier.
