One of the best things about Heroku is that it is very easy and straightforward to deploy an application.

The platform is very Node.js-friendly, which is something that is important to us.

The most valuable feature of Heroku is the continuous integration and applications it provides.

It is easy to deploy applications, and we don't need to bother about software updates on the server. We don't need to bother about machines, servers, and hardware. We only need to care about the system and functionality that we need or want to develop. They take care of everything else. It provides high availability.

It is a pretty good solution that provides everything that we need. It has everything that we need to run our applications. We have many different applications, and we generate three million bills for a company in Brazil. We see more than a billion requests per day in another application. Everything works just fine, and it is very good.

It's easy to push a change and to deploy new things.

Thanks to Heroku, we don't need to do as much direct management in AWS.

They could flesh out some of their analytics a little more. I can't think of any areas for improvement. It works pretty well.

They used to have MongoDB add-ons, but currently I think they've stopped and I'm not sure why. There is an issue because Heroku supports Docker container images, but not if you're using the continuous integration infrastructure. I really think Heroku should support Docker images on the CI infrastructure. For now, you cannot use those images and have to use the certified ones they provide for continuous integration and continuous delivery. They have a free plan but it only provides three hours of service, after which you have to switch to a pay plan. It's when you start to scale the application it becomes costly. There should be more scalability options for storage. It would be nice to have more official stacks, to try and support more languages to stack officially.
