Deploying your Shiny applications could not be easier. You don’t need to own a server or know how to configure a firewall to deploy and manage your applications in the cloud. No hardware, installation, or annual purchase contract required.
Shinyapps.io is secure-by-design. Each Shiny application runs in its own protected environment and access is always SSL encrypted. Standard and Professional plans offer user authentication, preventing anonymous visitors from being able to access your applications. Users are required to authenticate through one of the supported systems which currently include Google, GitHub, or a shinyapps.io account.Click here to read more about authentication.
We bring our IT team so you won’t have to bring yours. Be confident your compute resources will scale effortlessly as your Shiny applications and users increase. You can also tune the performance of your applications by controlling the resources available to them. This includes the ability to run multiple R processes in a given instance, along with the ability to add additional instances to increase your application performance even further. Shinyapps can scale to meet any workload. Click here to read more about scaling and performance tuning.
* Active Hours are the hours your applications are not idle. They are capped per account per month to protect the service from the exceptional resource consumer. If you exceed them on a free account your applications will not be available to your users again until the following month cycle. Currently, there are no overage fees if you exceed the hour allocations in any of the paid plans. In time, we may implement an overage fee if the number of hours is exceeded. If there is a change to the plan, which includes hours exceeded, you will be notified in advance.
