Elastic Cloud vs Heroku: What are the differences?

Elastic Cloud: Deploy, operate, and scale Elastic products and solutions in the cloud. A growing family of Elastic SaaS offerings that make it easy to deploy, operate, and scale Elastic products and solutions in the cloud. From an easy-to-use hosted and managed Elasticsearch experience to powerful, out-of-the-box search solutions; Heroku: Build, deliver, monitor and scale web apps and APIs with a trail blazing developer experience. Heroku is a cloud application platform – a new way of building and deploying web apps. Heroku lets app developers spend 100% of their time on their application code, not managing servers, deployment, ongoing operations, or scaling.
