What do you like best?

Recently moved my website's staging environment to Heroku. Combined with GitHub, I'm able to push changes from my localhost to Heroku's staging environment to test site changes before they go live. Can easily turn Dynos on/off to control monthly cost. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Not much. Took me less than a day to get used to Heroku and haven't looked back. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Heroku is one of the best platforms to host your web app. I support almost every possible backend language. Apart from that, you can host up to 4-5 web apps for free on your free tier. And it is very simple to use. If you have a little bit of knowledge about how the git command-line interface works you can easily use this. Alo you can manage your app with the bash terminal and can log if there is any issue or error in the web app. Maintaining and scaling your web app is very simple for you with Heroku. I have personally hosted all my web apps on Heroku. And the documentation is also very clear so there won't be any hassle for you in using this product. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

After using this it was very easy to host my web apps like node, react, flask, etc. And maintaining and managing them had also become very easy. This was the first platform that I used and it so much suited me that I did not think of changing this anytime. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

It's easy to set up and does what it says on the tin generally. Easy enough PaaS provider. The problems arise when you have contractual issues or need support... Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Long story short, they will try to trap you with contracts - for example, rolling an annual contract even if you're talking to support ahead of time about amending or cancelling it. Do not trust them or rely on good faith. In true American style, common sense, compassion and clear business need cannot supercede their contracts and hunger for money. You can try and fight them afterwards, but when &^%$ hits the fan and you need to reason with a human being, it will not happen.

Our case detailed below:

We have been terribly hit by Covid (travel tech business) and so our traffic fell off a cliff a month or two before our contract renewal was due. We were actively in discussions with their team about how we could adjust our usage accordingly. As we were coming close to a resolution that would save us a load of cash, they suddenly said 'oh, too late, your contract has rolled over so we can't make any changes, you have to pay for x dynos even if you don't use them'. We pointed out that this was ridiculous, given that we were literally talking to their support team when it happened.

Feeling fed up, we researched alternatives and had an option available that stood to save the business an amount that could be crucial to our survival. After explaining this to our rep and asking what reasonable provisions there were to simply pay for what we'd used and end the contract (which shouldn't have been rolled anyway) they immediately jumped to threatening us and saying that if we didn't pay for the full contract then they'll send debt collectors!

We found this highly inappropriate and asked to speak to their manager. What followed was a circus of escalations and beaucracy, all amounting to different levels of people blaming processes as to why we couldn't simply pay for what we'd used and cancel the contract (which, again, shouldn't in good faith have rolled in the first place). Eventually they offered a very small concession (we'd still have to pay for more than we were using) but no reasonable exit provisions. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Do not use it. They do not value customer experience over enforcing contracts and making money in the short term.

If you must, be EXTREMELY careful of their contracts and roll-over dates. Even if you're in active discussions to cancel/amend with their support, their roll-over dates are still iron-clad.

Bear in mind that they will NEVER let you exit a contract, even if a once in a lifetime global pandemic pauses your business for a year and you're making 0 revenue... Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

PaaS is relatively useful, avoids dev ops hires - though AWS has low-management options now-a-days. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Ease of use. Heroku saves us a lot of time in creating and deploying new apps.

Their marketplace for additional resources is very powerful. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The Heroku CI service is fairly limited, and I've had a hard time getting it to work well with a couple of our main apps (CircleCI and Travis work fine) Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Heroku is great. It allows single developers or teams to get on with a project, and get it launched, without too much hassle at all. But it can start to get quite expensive quite quickly. Once you start to see substantial traffic on your site, you're going to have to ask yourself whether your budget should focus on more dynos, more code optimisation, or a different platform. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We ship web apps for our own projects and for clients all of the time. Heroku takes a lot of the effort out of that. Their auto-maintenance and auto-deploy services really do save us a lot of time and effort Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

I love that Heroku scales with you. You can easily upload a Nodejs Application using a git repository, and Heroku will handle the deployment. You don't have to worry about how it will scale with you, as they will autoscale it based on usage. This helps you with no downtime on anything. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I dislike that Heroku is always trying to upsell you on features you may not need. To the uneducated, they'll opt into unnessacary features that are otherwise free. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If your company can't commit the time and resources to a DevOps team to manage your application, Heroku makes it easy to deploys apps without having the knowledge of managing a server. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use Heroku to deploy our custom application that keeps track of all of our technicians and clients. Heroku allows our technicians to access the app online anywhere. Compared to a regular server such as Godaddy. Heroku has allowed to to deploy a full stack application without the need of all the technical skills needed for AWS. It's the backbone of our business, and without Heroku hosting our application, we wouldn't be able to operated at the margins we currently at. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

My favorite part of Heroku is how fast I can have a web application up and running, even on a free tier. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Most of my projects are hosted on the free tier, which goes to sleep after a certain period of no use. When the dyno wakes again it can take upwards of 30 seconds for the webpage to load. While I can't really complain because I'm using the free version, it would be nice not to have to deal with this latency. Otherwise great product all around. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I'm hosting a web application for a startup I do contract work for. It's a python web application using the Flask framework and deployed using gunicorn. The main benefit is the ease of use and how quick new changes can be pushed out in just a few seconds. I also like how it hooks up directly to my github repo.

What do you like best?

Heroku is an outstanding tool for new users, providing perfectly simple, easy, and rapid early distribution and environment arrangement. It offers easy arrangement, environment confirmation, and simple practicability. The Heroku CLI delivers a great user interface for cooperating with the cloud environment. The metrics involved in Heroku are brilliant as an initial means for analyzing high-level problems. It is an open-source with wide-ranging certification. It offers a general pricing strategy. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

In some situations, Heroku could not be well-appropriate, because the price could be relatively higher as compared to GCP or AWS when using a few add-ons with more exclusive strategies. The cost of Heroku is not reasonably priced. Though it functions pretty good for smaller organizations, demanding little containers, it becomes very high-priced for larger applications. The value of add-on wholesalers is all the time more inconstant as Heroku enlarges the market. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It is an astonishing tool for the expansion of smaller apps, facilities, and sites that contains an inadequate budget or price estimation. It has an accessible user-friendly interface. It delivers highly scalable facilities and apps, with excessive competence to scale an app when desirable. It helps multiple databases, languages, and provide some other facilities in the form of add-ons. It is likely to get it free for smaller and simpler apps. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

There are a lot of cloud-based platforms for rapid deployment now, and Heroku's feature set is as robust as any of them. But it's extensive set of Add-Ons makes it stand apart. Truly, with one click you can incorporate any additional service you can possibly conceive of. Not only are days or weeks of work collapsed into hours, but it makes it possible to try out different options before you commit, bc the investment in setting them up is low. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Dealing with the lack of persistence file storage is painful, as is upgrading or downgrading the specs of the database. While the pricing for hosting is reasonable, some of the most common Add-Ons are priced a bit high, so costs can quickly add up. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Heroku has a free tier to try-before-you-buy, so if you're a complete Heroku newbie, consider testing your app on that tier to get a feel for how it works and what it will take to convert your existing app (or alter your usual software development patters) to fit Heroku's deployment model. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Heroku makes it possible for us to run a website with a complicated back-end with minimal staff. Most of the set-up/integration work on the platform fits well within the DevOps skillset of an experienced software developer, which means our core team can handle most of the infrastructure work, Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Salesforce Heroku, is an ideal tool for all types of developers who want to upload their applications to the cloud, you can work as a test error, running the applications, which are in the database of the application, in an environment simulated, for later, when you are sure, they work perfectly, they are uploaded to the network, and they can be online and accessible to all. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I must be honest, this software is somewhat complicated to use even for advanced developers, many commands and codes may be difficult for many to understand, since they are development environments a little different from those we are already familiar with, apart from this, the documentation of help, which is found on the web, about this program is very limited, a very large help documentation is needed, to avoid wasting time, in the trial and error of the use of the different features, that the application uses. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have a sector of developers, experimenting with new creations of applications of all kinds based on Heroku, we see a high potential, in this application and we want to move, many outdated applications that we still have, elaborated in different applications that use obsolete codes, and change them by the new ones that are made, in Heroku.

The ease of deployment and configuration is a big plus. Heroku lets you build and scale your website (and related components such as Postgres database or a Redis cache) with minimal fuss. There's more add-ons such as scheduled tasks and monitoring. Compared to other cloud providers, it's much easier to learn how to use and deploy your first app. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I think that for a highly complex application, heroku may not offer enough low-level control of the infrastructure. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Heroku may just suit your needs. Do a bit of research before committing to a cloud provider, there's no need to have complex features if you're not using them, and Heroku is located at a sweet spot with respect to price, ease of use and features that can support most web applications.

What do you like best?

Heroku is a fast, easy, nice and very reliable place to host your server-side apps, node.js, and ruby on rails apps works like a charm. I use HEROKU to deploy my apps, it allows me to store logs, run commands on the server side, clone the entire app and create a new environment, add services to my apps such as Sendgrid, Postgres DB and many many other. It also allows you to create pipelines and set up your environment variables in a very easy going manner over the web tools but also there is the CLI that allows you to do all the actions over the console. The overall service experience is great, once you start working with Heroku, Git will be your best friend since it is the way to deploy your apps. It even provides you with many development environments for your apps like Swift and any other that have some sort of package manager. Last but not least you can manage your project collaborators and ownership over the web manager so you can create your app and add all the members on your development team in no time or you can create an app for your client and once it's finished you can transfer the app ownership to your client. This is by far one of the best services for apps development I'd found in years, it really reduces the development and deployment time, no setup for each app, just the joy of git push heroku master ..... DoneTo gets to start with the services you just need to create the app in the web manager app, which makes it super Easy to use, it is super FAST to deploy and run the apps. It is highly scalable, you can start with a free dyno and scale it over the paid plans according to your needs with makes it very cost efficient. It might replace your git repository but also it is very easy to create several environments for your app in no time with exact clones of it even with environmental variables Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Unfortunately, we do not use Heroku for every project because it does have a high cost. While it is my favorite to use, sometimes it feels like the smarter decision to give up a little bit of the elegant design in exchange for significant savings in cost. The introduction of Hobby dynos awhile back made Heroku a great starting point for fresh apps, but depending on how many users we plan on having, sometimes the cost of staying on Heroku will quickly eclipse other platforms as a service option which while less elegant, still get the job done. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Heroku is a great platform for building modern web apps. You can quickly launch your app in production, especially if you use Heroku Container Registry. I use it to launch my lots of learning application free of cost. I worked for the enterprise at my company. It's Easy to use, Where you can create your pipeline for the deployment process. You can connect your Git with Heroku. Lost of important add-ons also available. Like Sumologic, Paper trail, Heroku COnnect, Postgres. Here Heroku has free database so you can use your free application as well Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

We have lost of limit in Salesforce to update, Insert and delete the data but using Heroku we resolve this issue and update lost of data.

Heroku enables any company of any scale or seamlessly manage any web properties they have. For rapid prototyping and testing new features, Heroku more than meets one's needs, and is a perfect solution to rapidly deploying and testing new mobile API back-ends. Whether one has always used personally managed servers or are coming from tools such as AWS Elastic Beanstalk, Heroku is very quick to migrate to and flexible to whatever deployment configuration you have. Its use of Git has been incredibly transformative for our team, as we had all been previously using it Git for all projects, and Heroku closed the loop allowing us to work and deploy from the same system. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Is more expensive than more traditional DIY hosting options. In the name of ease of use, some functionality is harder to find/employ, but this is more than compensated by the realized benefits of the system. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Heroku Toolbelt makes deployment and maintenance tasks so easy - everything is just a command line away. Almost never a gem compatibility problem, it's a complete plug-and-play. Hobby tier provides sufficient availability for my purposes.

Documentation works great for my needs, and it's supplemented by a healthy user community - I can find answers to most of my questions by just googling them, Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

It'd be nice to have some kind of a persistent file storage add-on. As things are now, I have to use Amazon S3 for files.

I wish Heroku Toolbelt used one port for everything. I roam a lot, working off of public wireless access points. Depending on their restrictions on TCP, ports you can use, this or that Heroku command won't work.

Also I'm not a big fan of their ElasticSearch add-on, Bonsai, I understand run by a separate company. I had availability issues specific to them, more than with Heroku proper. And when it happened, they would tell me that it's my fault for not subscribing to their more expensive plan.

It'd be nice to have more logs than just the last 1500 lines. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If your needs, like mine, are hosting Rails and Node.js web apps, Heroku seem like a good choice.

Watch out for the lack of persistent file storage - it came as a bit of a surprise to me. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

It's quite simple.to create and configure an entire pipeline.

The UI is pretty simple and useful. You can perform almost any action: start/stop an application, group some apps in a pipeline, perform a rollback to a previous version with jist one click, etc... Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

It's a bit expensive.

An x1 instance (512MB and 1 core) costs 25 euros per month.

If your applocation needs 1GB of primary memory you'll need to pay 50 euros per month.

In my opinion it's not as cheap as other platform, like digital ocean. However it's true that Heroku is a PaaS so it offers more features. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
