Heroku is a virtual platform as a service (PaaS) supporting some programming languages. Salesforce.com acquired Heroku in 2010.
Heroku helps developers build beautiful, customer-facing apps faster than ever before by removing the complexity of architecting your app for the Web.
Build apps in dozens of modern programming languages — including Ruby on Rails, Node.js, Python, Java, and more — then move your app to the Web with a few simple clicks. Heroku apps scale to meet demand with ease, and you get full control, infinite capacity, and independent scaling for each component of an app.

Heroku Use Cases and Deployment ScopeWe needed a trusted hosting platform that could scale but wouldn't come down like the other PaaS companies that pop up every day. In my previous role, Heroku was used for multiple applications, from our production application to one off proof of concepts.
Pros : The UI and admin dashboard made it easy to understand what was going on with each application.Heroku makes it easy to control who has access to your deployment platform.The command-line tool (CLI) is very well made. It makes deployment simple.
Cons : Our biggest gripe is the hoops we had to jump through in order to see exactly what went wrong during deployments.

Their dependence on Amazon brought them down a few times this year.

Heroku pairs rapid application deployment with a wealth of developer tools, but is light on manageability. It makes it easy to deploy a live application at no cost. Conversely, Heroku doesn't offer a fully functional dashboard for managing an application. With a preference for the command line, the Heroku team appears to have adopted a minimalist approach to the Web user interface.
