Heroku enables businesses to easily build, deploy, and scale their applications, and Facebook has been the most popular social platform for these apps. So the company's new Facebook App Package will bring that knowledge and experience helping customers build apps to bear, with resources specifically catered to help Facebook developers. Included in the package is Heroku's dedicated database service, dynos and workers, New Relic app performance monitoring, and memcaching.
Heroku's CEO Byron Sebastian says that "Facebook apps are a clear category where we've seen customers large and small successfully reach millions of new potential customers and users on our platform. The Heroku Facebook initiative helps customers leverage the best practices we have identified from working with these thousands of apps."
