Today, we’re excited to announce a major update to Heroku Postgres with a new lineup of production plans. These plans are the first component of Heroku Postgres PGX, the next generation of our managed Postgres solution.

PGX Plans introduce larger database sizes, more generous resource allocations, and a broader set of options to suit your needs and to help your applications scale more smoothly. PGX Plans are generally available as of today, and all new Postgres databases will be created on our latest generation of Postgres infrastructure. Underneath the hood, we've upgraded the CPU, memory, storage, and networking aspects to ensure your Postgres database is running smoothly at scale....


2017 was a great year for Heroku and our users. We want to thank each of you for your feedback, beta participation, and spirit of innovation, which inspires how we think about our products and evolve the platform.

In the past year, we released a range of new features to make the developer experience even more elegant. We bolstered our existing lineup of data services while providing security controls for building high compliance applications on the platform.

With that, we’d like to take a moment and share some of the highlights from 2017. We hope you enjoy it, and we look forward to an even more exciting 2018!


We are excited to announce that the new Heroku Partner Portal for Add-ons is now generally available.

The new portal offers an improved partner experience for building, managing, and updating Heroku add-ons. Our goal is to create a workflow that will give you more freedom and enable you to bring your add-ons to market more easily.

In each section, we've made more functionality available via the portal interface, where in the past emails or support tickets might have been necessary. This release brings a more visual approach as well as greater focus to creating and...


UPDATE: Friday, January 5 19:07 PST

As of 13:30 PST, AWS completed their patch deployment addressing tenant isolation threats. AWS reports they have restored the expected multi-tenancy protections similar to dedicated hardware, which leaves Heroku to address the kernel vulnerabilities in runtime host operating systems.

Heroku Performance, Private, and Shield dynos feature varying degrees of isolation from potentially hostile neighbors. However, the shared Common Runtime carries our highest priority for Meltdown (variant 3) mitigation work due to the nature of its shared infrastructure.

The ideal fix is to deploy the updated kernel from Canonical prior to the release of functional...


Today, we're happy to announce full support for PostgreSQL 10, opening our managed Postgres solution to the full slate of features released after a successful two-month Beta period. PostgreSQL 10 is now the default version for all new provisioned Heroku Postgres databases. All Postgres extensions, tooling, and integration with the Heroku developer experience are ready to use, giving you the power of PostgreSQL 10 with the ease and usability of Heroku for building data-centric applications.

We'd like to re-emphasize a few features - among the many released in Postgres 10 - that we are particularly excited about.
