Codebase One codebase tracked in revision control, many deploys
Dependencies Explicitly declare and isolate dependencies
Config Store config in the environment
Backing services Treat backing services as attached resources
Build, release, run Strictly separate build and run stages
Processes Execute the app as one or more stateless processes
Port binding Export services via port binding
Concurrency Scale out via the process model
Disposability Maximize robustness with fast startup and graceful shutdown
Dev/prod parity Keep development, staging, and production as similar as possible
Logs Treat logs as event streams
Admin processes Run admin/management tasks as one-off processes
