Heroku is a cloud platform that enables developers to deploy, run, and scale applications. Heroku was initially created by James Lindenbaum in 2007 as an open-source project called "RackHD", but it was acquired by Salesforce in 2010 and rebranded. Heroku services are used to control app servers, databases, add-ons (additional services like background workers), logging, monitoring, security protocols (TLS), and more. Heroku's popularity is largely due to its simplicity; there is no need for users to configure or manage virtual machines or the operating system of the application server itself.
