After a successful evaluation period, PostgreSQL 12 is now the default version for new Heroku Postgres databases and an available upgrade for existing databases.

I want to emphasize a few key changes and improvements in Postgres 12:

Native Table Partitioning Concurrent Operations

Native Partitioning was introduced in PostgreSQL 10 and performance improvements for improved parallel processing were added in PostgreSQL 11. Updating tables, altering partitions blocking queries, and executing concurrent operations for Native Partitioning were all improved in PostgreSQL 12. New features include allowing tables to modify partitions without blocking queries, allowing foreign keys to reference...

On May 10, 2018, we received notice about two critical vulnerabilities in Redis, both embargoed until this morning.

Upon this notice, our Data Infrastructure team proceeded to patch all internal and customer databases in response to these vulnerabilities. As of today, all customer databases have been patched successfully.

At Heroku, customer trust is our most important value - and we are grateful to have your trust in keeping a globally-distributed data fleet safe from harm. If you’re interested in more behind the scenes details, check out our engineering blog post on how our Data Infrastructure team undertook the effort to patch our entire Redis fleet.

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!

Heroku has a strong tradition with open source projects. Engineers have dedicated countless hours to the projects that developers count on every day. Open Source Software is in our DNA.

Speaking personally, I’m passionate about building tools like AFNetworking and cupertino, in order to help developers build insanely great experiences for mobile devices. It’s with great pleasure that I introduce something new I’ve been working on:

Helios is an open-source framework that provides essential back-end services for iOS apps. This includes data synchronization, push notifications, in-app purchases, and passbook integration. It allows developers to get a client-server app up-and-running while...
