"A great tool for rapid arrangement and environment conformation."
What do you like best about Salesforce Heroku?

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.

What do you dislike about Salesforce Heroku?

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.

What problems is Salesforce Heroku solving and how is that benefiting you?

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.

"Heroku is an essential development environment for web apps"
What do you like best about Salesforce Heroku?

Heroku CLI. The Heroku CLI for deploying ruby on rails apps is very easy to use and git workflow is made painless with Heroku. It simplifies tasks like upgrading a Postgresql database which can be done easily from the command line.

What do you dislike about Salesforce Heroku?

The cost. For any development app with limited database tables and accessible to one or two users, deploying to Heroku is a no brainer. But, for production apps, the cost can quickly spiral as more integrations (e.g. New Relic) are added. For the price range of a typical Heroku production app, I feel there are much better solutions out there. While these may not have the ease of use that Heroku can provide, the additional work needed to setup deployment scripts and deploy to a server on Digital Ocean, for example, would be much more cost effective over a long period of time. Also, there are many open-source tools now that can mimic Heroku-like deployments without all of the costs.

What problems is Salesforce Heroku solving and how is that benefiting you?

Working with internal QA teams that need to see latest development changes instantly. Also, managing multiple development environments. With Heroku I can quickly get a new environment up for other team members to review.

"Ridiculously easy but a bit pricey at times"
What do you like best about Salesforce Heroku?

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.

What do you dislike about Salesforce Heroku?

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.

What problems is Salesforce Heroku solving and how is that benefiting you?

Again, it removes devops from the equation almost completely when it comes to getting an app in front of people.

"The fastest way to expand your software stack"
What do you like best about Salesforce Heroku?

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.

What do you dislike about Salesforce Heroku?

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.

What problems is Salesforce Heroku solving and how is that benefiting you?

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,

"Great Platform And Easy To Use For Application Development"
What do you like best about Salesforce Heroku?

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

What do you dislike about Salesforce Heroku?

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.

What problems is Salesforce Heroku solving and how is that benefiting you?

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.

"Now just focus on development, not on deployment"
What do you like best about Salesforce Heroku?

I like how simple is deploying an application on Heroku is. I mostly use Heroku when developing any projects because I know that I don't need to worry about the deployment.

What do you dislike about Salesforce Heroku?

Pricing. Heroku price for each ad-ons separate and that is a negative point from my side. If Heroku can somehow work on their pricing more to provide more benefits to small businesses, that would be great.

What problems is Salesforce Heroku solving and how is that benefiting you?

Deployment of applications. Currently, I use Heroku for my apps and database hosting. and its just some clicks and work is done.

"Pretty satisfied"
What do you like best about Salesforce Heroku?

Its extensibility, plugins and command-line integration. One can set up complete stack in minutes focus on the application rather than maintaining the stack.

What do you dislike about Salesforce Heroku?

Extra services that are required along with the primary platform come at a higher cost, if we choose to work entirely on the Heroku platform.

What problems is Salesforce Heroku solving and how is that benefiting you?

Creating large scale web platforms for social activities. It provides with all types of pricing to suit your needs and gives you the ability to test some free of cost.

"Salesforce Heroku helps us deliver data archiving solution successfully"
What do you like best about Salesforce Heroku?

Salesforce Heroku allows us to install various apps to archive data by a 3rd party archiver and we can process the archived data to be run off-platform in Heroku Postgres then synchronize the stats back to SF. The best part is that the archived data can still be visible on-platform via Salesforce Connect!

What do you dislike about Salesforce Heroku?

The pricing might not be affordable by small company with limited budget as they might not see the benefit from the solution immediately comparing the cost they could reduce from the data storage.

What problems is Salesforce Heroku solving and how is that benefiting you?

We are able to move SF data off-platform and still keep them calculated and updated in Salesforce nearly real-time.
