Today we’re sharing three performance enhancements that we have recently rolled out to apps running in Private Spaces:

  • Dynos upgraded to the latest generation infrastructure for 10-15% perf improvement
  • More consistent performance for Small Private and Shield Space dynos
  • Optimized clock source selection

Heroku is a fully managed platform-as-a-service (PaaS) and we work tirelessly to continuously improve and enhance the experience of running apps on our platform. Unlike lower-level infrastructure-as-a-service systems, improvements are applied automatically to apps and databases and require no action or intervention from app developers to benefit.

That means that no action is required on...

Today, we’re thrilled to announce four new trusted data integrations that allow data to flow seamlessly and securely between Heroku and external resources in public clouds and private data centers:

  • Heroku Postgres via mutual TLS
  • Heroku Postgres via PrivateLink
  • Apache Kafka on Heroku via PrivateLink
  • Heroku Redis via PrivateLink

These integrations expand Heroku's security and trust boundary to cover the connections to external resources and the data that passes through them. They enable true multi-cloud app and data architectures and keep developers focused on delivering value versus managing infrastructure. Data is the driving force in modern app development, and these...

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.

Need to quickly catch up on this past quarter's announcements? Here are the top three topics to tune in on:

Heroku has expanded regions availability for Private Spaces and introduced the general availability of the Dublin region on September 26, 2017. Heroku users are able to run apps in all of the following Private Spaces regions: Virginia, Oregon, Frankfurt, Tokyo, Sydney, and Dublin. Please verify that your add-on's manifest accurately reflect the supported Privates Spaces regions.

Heroku app webhooks for customers and add-on webhooks for partners are generally available. Partners are able to track many kinds of events relating to add-on resources on apps, domains, builds,...
