Last week we have deployed a big update which adds support for workers and processes. You can now define your own processes to be launched when your app starts such as workers or additional app instances.
This change enables you to run cron jobs and workers in a separate process apart from your app instances. If you run multiple app instances, all requests are automatically load balanced across all your running instances.
Existing apps have been migrated so that all processes spawn an instance of your app. This setting can be easily changed through our web console. Memory and storage is shared across all your processes.
