When roughly do you think it will be available?

We're about to build an app, I'd like to deploy on Heroku but its looking as though we may have to go with AWS due to Thinking Sphinx support.

I'm not after a solid date, but if its a month or so I'd consider holding out!

    Hi Geoff

    Two things to note: firstly, if you want to be a part of the private beta, email beta at heroku dot com - they have a single list for all add-ons. I'm not sure how hard/easy it is for them to get you on that list, but it's definitely worth asking.

    Secondly: I can't promise anything with regards to a public release.

    That said, I'm hoping to either go public beta or even fully public in a week or less - as I'll be speaking about it at Euruko in just over two weeks, and it'd be nice if it was live (and not just before I hop on a 24 hour flight). Whether that actually happens, I'm not sure - I'm currently fighting a battle with Sphinx authentication at the moment - but I'm hopeful.

    The one remaining caveat with that is that timelines will depend at least a little on Heroku themselves, as they'll need to mark it as public.

    Does that add at least a little clarity? :)
