SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - Aug 30, 2011) - Dreamforce Conference -- New Relic, Inc., the SaaS web application performance management provider, announced today that their application performance management (APM) tool for monitoring web applications is now available for Java applications running on Heroku. New Relic Standard edition for Java will be available free of charge to Heroku's Java customers through the add-on catalog just as it is available today for customers deploying business-critical Ruby web apps on Heroku's robust, proven platform.

Announced last week, Java support on Heroku is now available and joins Ruby, Clojure and Node.js programming languages on Heroku. New Relic offers 24x7 real user and application monitoring along with a unique Java profiler for live web apps and delivers code-level diagnostics for more proactive identification and troubleshooting of web application performance bottlenecks. With New Relic Standard edition available free of charge, Heroku customers deploying business-critical Java applications can now monitor, troubleshoot and tune their apps at optimal application performance.

"As more businesses look to Heroku to enable their cloud strategy, providing application performance monitoring is critical," said Oren Teich, VP Product Management of Heroku. "We are excited to announce the availability of New Relic's add-on for our tens of thousands of developers worldwide and now growing base of Java developers with New Relic's new production profiling and monitoring capabilities integrated seamlessly with Heroku."

"New Relic and Heroku have worked together to deliver the tools, resources, and skills organizations needed to rapidly and successfully deploy business-critical apps in the cloud," said Bill Lapcevic, VP Business Development of New Relic. "The addition of New Relic's app production profiling and monitoring capabilities to Heroku's new Cedar platform underscores our continued joint commitment to providing Java developers with the same scalability, simplicity, and reliability that Ruby programmers have enjoyed for over the last two years."
