Heroku, a long-time partner of Startup Grind is a cloud-based, platform-as-a-service (PaaS) that gives startups a powerful solution for building, deploying and operating their business-critical apps. The Heroku platform is fully-managed, meaning that we take care of servers, hardware, and infrastructure, so you can keep your team lean and focused on product. Heroku grows with your business — use a range of free services to get established and then scale up with increased usage.
