New Relic offers 24x7 real user and application monitoring and the industry’s first Java profiler for live web apps.

With New Relic Standard edition available free of charge, Heroku customers deploying business-critical Java applications can monitor, troubleshoot and tune their apps, and deliver optimal application performance.
"As more and more organizations look to Heroku for help with enabling their cloud strategies, it’s important that we provide additional language support for and continue partnering with leading companies like New Relic to help our customers be successful," said Name, Title at Heroku. "With New Relic available to our Ruby and Java customers through the add-on catalog, it’s now easier than ever before for app teams to ensure their cloud-based apps are meeting and exceeding business goals and end-user expectations."
"New Relic and Heroku have worked closely together to deliver the tools, resources, and skills organizations needed to rapidly and successfully deploy business-critical apps in the cloud," said Lew Cirne, New Relic founder and CEO. "The addition of New Relic’s app production profiling and monitoring capabilities to Heroku’s new platform demonstrates very clearly our continued joint commitment to providing Java developers with the same scalability, simplicity, and reliability that Ruby programmers have enjoyed over the last two years."
