Cloud application platform

Heroku is a cloud-based application used to build and manage apps. It’s suitable to build modern architectures in a simple way with code or by using add-ons, features, and extensions that are already available.

Use a variety of different codes

Heroku supports many languages, meaning there is bound to be one that fits your profile. Languages supported include Python, Go, PHP, Java, Ruby, Node.js, Scala, and Clojure. In addition, any language that runs on Linux is supported through an extension.

An experience made for developers

Heroku manages all the critical aspects of production: the configuring, orchestrating, logging, security, etc. You also have the ability to go back to previous versions of your code in an instant. And all this can be done in collaboration as well as different users in a team can be granted permission to work on an app.

A scalable platform

Heroku adapts to projects of all sizes and performs excellently, regardless of the traffic of an app or of the nature of the company. It fits the lean structure of startups and the high-performing needs of large businesses. Performance can be tracked through integrated app metrics. Add-ons are available to enhance applications if necessary.


Heroku has 4 plans. The Free and Hobby plan is for basic personal projects. The Production, Advanced, and Enterprise plans all have a monthly fee and target different business needs. You then have the option to add different features or upgrades if you need them, which will increase the final price.

Free; Hobby—$7/mo; $25-$500/mo depending on configuration
