Business description: Instant Deployment: When you create or import an app with Heroku, it's already live on the web. Integrated Stack: No configuration or deployment necessary. Heroku provides a full stack platform. No decisions necessary, just get straight to coding your app. Share and Collaborate Make your app public to the web or private to users you specify. Add collaborators who can edit the app with you. Full Ruby Environment: With a full Ruby and Rails runtime environment, you can run any Ruby code you can write, no limits. Rails Console: Execute code and manipulate data through a full Rails console running in a browser window. Painless Migrations: Unapplied migrations are automatically detected. Apply them with one click. Work Locally: Use our API and Git to create, clone, and deploy apps right from your local command line. Create and Edit Online: Edit all of your code and data right in your browser. You can access it anywhere and there's nothing to install. Elastic Performance: Heroku is built on Amazon's Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2), so your apps have access to unlimited computing power. Import & Export: Easily import and export your app's code, schema, and data at any time with just one click. Gems & Plugins: Install any gem or plugin directly into your app with one click. Pull from the standard gem and plugin directories, or upload your own. Generate Code: Use Rails generators to create code for your application. Run any generate command right in your browser. Rake Tasks: Run any rake command right from your browser.
