Question Install and deploy Heroku Platform on local network


I am a novice to Heroku platform. I have been reading this book and several articles about Heroku on the web. From all information I have got so far is Heroku platform is hosted and managed by third party such as Amazon data center. All applications developed for Heroku will be pushed to Heroku platform for execution. I am researching open source tools/apis for web single sign-on and resource authorization and considering Heroku. One of the requirement is that we must be able to install and deploy the service on our network. I wonder if we can do that we Heroku. Any help on this is greatly appreciated.

Default Re: Install and deploy Heroku Platform on local network

Hi Tam,

If you're simply looking to get an app up and running that would run exclusively within and be accessed through your own network (like SSO), Heroku probably would not be a good fit.

You can do local development using tools like Foreman (https://devcenter.heroku.com/article...y-with-foreman) but this is intended to ensure that the environment you use to develop and debug apps is similar to your production environment on Heroku. Since you can't use Heroku as your production environment in your use case, using Heroku probably wouldn't add any benefit for you.
