Scale your dynos, choose your database, and dive into our Add-ons. Whatever you need.
Dynos are the unit of computing power on Heroku, providing lightweight, isolated containers that run your app.
Dynos can execute any process type and are designed to run and scale independently. A web dyno runs your code and responds to HTTP requests. Increase your web dynos to increase HTTP performance. A worker dyno executes background jobs, typically running your code and processing jobs from a queue. Increase your worker dynos to provide additional concurrency and capacity.
Heroku Postgres is a fully managed, reliable and powerful database-as-a-service based on PostgreSQL. Our pricing is tiered by availability and scaled by cache size.
