A powerful and innovative feature set

Built for developers, by developers

  • Heroku Runtime

    Your apps run inside smart containers in a fully managed runtime environment, we handle everything critical for production — configuration, orchestration, load balancing, failovers, logging, security, and more.

  • Heroku Postgres (SQL)

    Reliable and secure PostgreSQL as a service with easy setup, encryption at rest, simple scaling, database forking, continuous protection, and more.

  • Heroku Redis

    The most popular in-memory, key-value datastore — delivered as a service. Heroku Redis provides powerful data types, great throughput, and built-in support for top languages.

  • Scale

    Heroku scales in an instant, both vertically and horizontally. You can elegantly run everything from tiny hobby projects to enterprise-grade e-commerce handling Black Friday surges.

  • Add-ons

    Extend, enhance, and manage your applications with pre-integrated services like New Relic, MongoDB, SendGrid, Searchify, Fastly, Papertrail, ClearDB MySQL, Treasure Data, and more.

  • Data Clips

    Data Clips make it easy to keep everyone in the loop with up-to-the-second data insights from your project by sharing query results via a simple and secure URL.

  • Code & Data Rollback

    Work fearlessly — Heroku’s build system and Postgres service let you roll back your code or your database to a previous state in an instant.

  • App Metrics

    Always know what’s going on with your apps thanks to built-in monitoring of throughput, response times, memory, CPU load, and errors.

  • Continuous Delivery

    Heroku Flow uses Heroku Pipelines, Review Apps and GitHub Integration to make building, iterating, staging, and shipping apps easy, visual, and efficient.

  • GitHub Integration

    Our seamless GitHub integration means every pull request spins up a disposable Review App for testing, and any repo can be set up to auto-deploy with every GitHub push to a branch of your choosing.

  • Extensibility

    Customize your stack with a Heroku innovation: Buildpacks. Build your own, or choose one from the hundreds built by the community to run Gradle, Meteor, NGINX — even Haskell.

  • Smart Containers

    Your apps run in smart containers called dynos, where the system and language stacks are continually monitored, patched, and upgraded by our team.
