As the world becomes more cloud-centric, and more of our apps and business depend on its capabilities, the trust, control and management of cloud services is more important than ever. Since the first days of Heroku — and Platform-as-a-Service in general — many companies have struggled to balance the impact and success of the cloud with the control offered by traditional software and on-premise infrastructure.

At Heroku we're building a solid platform for delivering apps in a deliberate, reliable manner. We know that reasoning about the state and progress of code changes, testing and verifying what's deployed, and tracking what works can all be difficult — especially for non-engineering team members.

So we’re proud to introduce Heroku Flow, a new and flexible way to structure, support, and visualize Continuous Delivery for Heroku apps from development to production. Heroku Flow does for Continuous Delivery (CD) what pull requests have done for code review: make CD visual, easy...


Last year, we launched the original Performance dyno, designed to support the largest apps running at-scale with more consistent service and faster response times.
