Heroku is a cloud application platform that allows organizations to focus on application development and business strategy while Heroku focuses on infrastructure management, scaling, and security. The platform is designed to protect customers from threats by applying security controls at every layer from physical to application, isolating customer applications and data, and with its ability to rapidly deploy security updates without customer interaction or service interruption.
In this architecture, Heroku is the foundation that the Data Lake is built on and provides a secure, reliable platform to store data that can scale as business demands grow. More on Heroku security can be found here.
The GRAX Heroku application manages proxying of data bi-directionally between SFDC and S3 (or other storage provider), Elasticsearch indexing, restore functions, data connectors, and schedulers.
