Heroku is a container-based cloud Platform as a Service (PaaS). Developers use Heroku to deploy, manage, and scale modern apps. Heroku is elegant, flexible, and easy to use, offering developers the simplest path to getting their apps to the market. Heroku is fully managed, giving developers the freedom to focus on their core product without the distraction of maintaining servers, hardware, or infrastructure. The Heroku experience provides services, tools, workflows, and polyglot support—all designed to enhance developer productivity. The Heroku platform provides a set of capabilities that deliver higher-order value. With Heroku, there is no need to learn about server configuration, network management, or tuning the latest version of a database. Heroku removes obstacles so developers can focus on what they do best: building great apps. Every detail of the Heroku experience, from capabilities to tools to workflows, is thoughtfully designed to delight developers and maximize productivity. Heroku Add-ons are fully-managed services, integrated for use with Heroku. They can be provisioned and scaled in one command, and let developers extend the capabilities of an application. Heroku is tightly integrated with Salesforce - providing seamless Heroku and Salesforce data synchronization, enabling companies to architect innovative apps that span both platforms. Another key component of Heroku is the Operational experience (OpEx) module. This functionality allows developers to troubleshoot and remediate common problems. It makes it easy to customize the op’s experience to impeccably pinpoint and cure negative trends affecting the apps health. Heroku provides powerful tools that allow users to automatically scale the web dynos whenever the response time to alerts exceeds the stipulated threshold.
