Today we're excited to announce Site-to-Site Virtual Private Network (VPN) support for Heroku Private Spaces. Heroku customers can now establish secure, site-to-site IPsec connections between Private Spaces on Heroku and their offices, datacenters and deployments on non-AWS clouds.

VPN is a powerful, proven and widely-adopted technology for securely combining multiple networks (or adding individual hosts to a network) over encrypted links that span the public Internet. VPN is well-understood and in use by most enterprise IT departments, and is supported on all major cloud providers and by a range of hardware and software-based systems.


Today we’re announcing a powerful new network control for apps running in Heroku Private Spaces: Internal Routing. Apps with Internal Routing work exactly the same as other Heroku apps, except the web process type is published to an endpoint that’s routable only within the Private Space and on VPC and VPN peered networks (see the Private Space VPN support companion post). Apps with Internal Routing are impossible to access directly from the public internet, improving security and simplifying management and compliance checks for web sites, APIs and services that must not be publicly accessible.


Since we introduced Heroku CI over a year ago, we've been hard at work developing features aimed at making your testing speed even faster and workflow more optimized. Today we are pleased to announce Heroku CI Parallel Test Runs and the Heroku CI API are now generally available (GA) for all Heroku customers. Parallel Test Runs allows you to split up and execute test runs on up to 16 nodes. With the Heroku CI API, you can create, trigger, and receive test run info from your own custom workflow or CD tools. Additionally, we are opening up our support for cross-browser UAT via integration with third-party providers to private beta participants.

Today we are pleased to announce general availability of Heroku Shield Connect, the latest addition to our lineup of Heroku Shield services.

Heroku Shield, announced last year, enabled new capabilities for Dynos, Postgres databases and Private Spaces that make Heroku suitable for high compliance environments such as those that fall under the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) regulations. Heroku Shield Connect extends this offering by enabling high performance, fully automated, and bi-directional data synchronization between Salesforce and Heroku Postgres for companies that need to build HIPAA-compliant applications - all in a matter of a few clicks.
