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 do you dislike?

There is nothing to dislike about this software. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Yes 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?

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.

What do you like best?

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. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

I built an application that let's users upload their data and share with others. It was very easy to provision the machines and the databases I needed - I didn't have to manage any networking configuration for example. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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.

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

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. Some of the third party also we can't connect with some other service but we connect. Heroku also having lots of important add-ons. I used Postgres, Heroku Connect, Sumologic, Paper trail, Scheduler more. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

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.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

For rapid prototyping you will not be disappointed, but do bear in mind the cost as things scale. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

Easy team collaboration and resource management and scaling. Heroku is the best way to achieve this. When application issues have occurred, Heroku has made patch deployment very easy and has been able to drastically improve our issue response time. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

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

Heroku is an incredible, elegant platform for deployment, hosting, and scalability. It's very well documented, has a great user experience both in website and command line form, is well supported by Heroku as well as third-party tools, and has a very set of features. Most of all: No need to be concerned with securing a server itself.

They also provide a fear, single dyno service one can use for testing and micro projects. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Heroku does have some limitations in the form of a no-write filesystem, forcing developers to use solutions like Amazon S3. It has had some performance issues in the past due to how routing was performed, but Heroku was honest and transparent about the issue and their resolution. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Use it. You can run far more than Ruby applications on it these days. Get rid of any servers you truly don't need and go PaaS. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

We've used this for our own products, to host software for running blood drives, greatly supporting a hospital and its children, for a custom video streaming solution, and far more.

We could not be happier with a PaaS. It has saved us immense time in provisioning, configuration, deployment, and security, allowing us to focus on the application itself. It's so easily scalable, there have even been iPhone apps for doing so on the fly. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Heroku toolbelt: It makes every thing easy as pie, from profiling a deployed system to switching from local to remote console in order to perform any desired task. It feels just as if one were working on his/her local computer, while performing some very non-trivial remote tasks. Also, the Procfile feature is a must, as I can easily configure additional tests, continuous integration, and run some extra scripts that I might need in order to fulfill a certain task my product my be in need of. Switching from local to my remote deployed system, as well as having many different instances installed at the distance of a simple command text. It's a must to me! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Steep learning curve. In order to being fully capable of using heroku's platform, one needs to take quite a bit of time to learn its commands and entrails. It did take me a while to really take the time to study it. I wish it was a little simpler so I could have enjoyed its great plugins a lot earlier. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

It makes going from idea to deployed app ridiculously easy. I *always* recommend starting with Heroku to folks starting out with tech like Rails and the Python frameworks. It removes the deployment barrier for these folks to start sharing their code. The lack of require maintenance is also great. If a piece of hardware fails, they take care of it. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The price, which isn't to say it doesn't match the value. It's just that it does add up once you reach a certain level of traffic and complexity. After a while, you reach a juncture where your app is complex enough, you know enough, and the concept is "worth it" (from a personal or financial perspective) to move it to something that is far higher maintenance for (in raw dollars) cheaper. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you plan to go all in on Heroku, it will make your life much easier if you choose tech (e.g., databases, email, etc.) that has tight integration with it through a third party provider or a direct Heroku service. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Implementation is not an easy task with heroku here as you need to be completely aware of heroku platform and its capabilities.

You need to change some settings on both the sides. But as we have a few trailhead chapters specially for training, it is of a lot of help Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

We are still exploring the platform and integration. As we are in the learning stage, we would be good to provide recommendations once our major go live happens with our next release.

What do you like best?

Easy to setup and use. It works as a charm to add new features or plugins. Well documented and easy to understand. Makes development easy since it gives you all the needed resources to do so. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

It is still difficult for me to understand what a dyno is. It is not well documented and I have not seen any good explanation on it. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Don't be afraid of changing from a traditional grid-service to a cloud computing service. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

I like that provisioning of any web application or service is very easy. You souldn't learn how to configure the servers or how to customize them to give you the best performance. On Heroku Enterprise you can, also, increase the scalability of any application and the support team is very very experienced and helps you with any thing regarding network issues, downtimes, servers configuration, so on. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I and my team didn't find any issues or things that we dislike until now. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you search for a really customized PaaS, go for Heroku. It's the right choice. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

My team doesn't need to configure the servers for our application. Continuous integration, testing servers, mail server, GIT server, Sonar server installation is very complicated for a huge application environment. With Heroku Enterprise, we just configure elelments and we are up to go if we want to extend features. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

The leader in the emerging platform-as-a-service industry is Heroku, an extensible and well-connected cloud hosting platform that makes deploying and managing applications in several popular languages almost effortless.

It has made great strides since its inception as a Ruby-only application hosting platform to include support for Python, Node.js, Java and PHP multiple languages.

Heroku has a freemium model, and invariably, Ruby enthusiasts who try out Heroku, invariably get hooked on to it and start using more and more resources and move to the premium offering. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

No other services can be run on dynos. Dynos are strictly for application processes. Databases, background workers, and other services usually cost extra through Heroku’s add-ons or third party services.

No way to install system software. Heroku does provide some commonly-used packages such as Imagemagick, but if you need anything else, you’ll have to resort to hacks. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

You can’t beat free, and this is actually quite a good offering. One dyno is plenty to run many kinds of apps. Brochure sites, simple APIs, and blogs are a few of the many possible uses for this free dyno. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

Modern Platform-as-a-Service for Enterprise Application Development.

Corporate app dev teams can enjoy all of the core Heroku benefits — including smart containers, instant scalability, powerful developer tools and workflow, pre-integrated add-ons, and data services — with added collaboration functionality, additional control features, and enterprise grade support. Now enterprises can build highly engaging, disruptive apps as easily as startups. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
