We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"Thanks to Heroku, we don't need to do as much direct management in AWS."
"It's easy to push a change and to deploy new things."
"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."
"The most valuable feature of the solution is its ability to scale. The services that connect to the database are also very good."
"Stability is not a concern with this product."
"The most valuable features are the monitoring and the deployment is easier."
"PCF is open, so the applications run really smoothly and with little downtime."
"They could flesh out some of their analytics a little more."
"Heroku doesn't support Docker images on the CI infrastructure."
"Their support is good, but they can improve their response time."
"In the next release, they should offer additional applications for the databases, and improve the deployment experience."
"The user interface should be simpler to navigate because it t can take time for users to learn it."
"In the next release, I would like to see easy integration with external tools."
"It is not straightforward to setup."
"Its price is very good."
"Licensing is on a monthly basis and right now we pay $24/month. There are no other costs over and above that."
