We are excited to be one of the early adopters of the Phoenix web framework, powered by Elixir and the Erlang virtual machine. Phoenix provides fantastic concurrency, reliability, and fault tolerance, while preserving speed and efficiency of development.
We are among the first to use Elixir coupled with the Phoenix Framework which provides one of the most powerful platforms for APIs to drive Web and Mobile Applications. Elixir is built on the Erlang VM that has been battle-tested for over 30 years. We have noticed huge performance benefits, including lightning fast template rendering, performance reliability, and uptime of 99.99%. These features allow for the best user experience at a fraction of the hosting costs. In fact, this very website is one of our production applications written in Elixir and Phoenix and is one of the first Elixir/Phoenix applications to hit the web.
