    You mean why I'm not doing it as a project offering or how would one go about doing that for his own project?

    Something like that, i mean : as a freelancer testing website could be a really cool business, may be doing a product on heroku may help freelancers to do that ?
    - A detailed business offer in the way you explain it in the article on SAAS deployment,
    - A client would test XSS on his web site and it cost some $s <= Arachni could help
    - A network of freelancers specilized in security website scanners <= a network of freelancers could be more efficient
    Things are not really clear in my mind now but i am sure it could be great for 'ME' to focus on creating a business with Arachni framework

    I've thought about it but I'm not interested in starting my own business, at least not yet. As for doing it on Heroku specifically, I'm not really sure how they run things but most people do this on Amazon's cloud stuff.

    Also, most startups that offer those kinds of services actually use Arachni to perform the scans, so there's plenty of companies to chose from already if you're looking for those types of services.

    Also, you can stick some Dispatchers on your favorite cloud-crap provider and use the WebUI to control them and run scans, if it's just for personal use. And that way you'll have full control over both the process and the data.

    I am really enthousiat about how i will perform a business with my startup to perform scans in distance work and touch some webmasters around the world (in general freelancers working with major CMS) to find vulnerabilities in their sites. I am going to work about it now ... The developpement model (open source) of Arachni is the best that fits my convictions in the way that developpement must be.

    Metasploit is a true model of envolvement that became a must now. I hope Arachni too

    Hello all !
    I have tried to upload anarchi 0.4.x to heroku yesterday accordin to heroku documentation, a sorte of file called Procfile must be done and Ruby must be recognised.

    I am not a heroku neither ruby guru but i will try again ... In the other hand amazon AWS could be good but it's pay servers like VPS on
