Overall Satisfaction with Heroku

Heroku has been invaluable to our development and delivery of (mostly Ruby-powered) web applications for internal purposes as well as for clients. Heroku's toolbelt and great network of add-ons has let us and our devs focus on building and shipping products and services and not infrastructure and developer ops.
  • Deployment of apps
  • Network of add-ons
  • Pricing could be a little more competitive
  • Ease of use for new developers
  • Professional support offerings
  • Faster time for code to deployment to delivery
  • Better discovery of add ons
  • Added ability to focus on code, not dev ops
Heroku is great for small to medium apps. For larger apps, dedicated infrastructure might be a better idea.
Heroku is well suited for small to medium sized web apps (for huge scale it can get overly expensive) -- of course not well suited for apps where data security like PHI is required as the platform is not HIPAA compliant.
