Description

What is Heroku?

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.

What is Pivotal Web Services (PWS)?

Pivotal Web Services is a public cloud version of the widely supported Open Source Cloud Foundry PaaS. PWS makes is an ideal platform for the rapid deployment, easy scaling and binding of third party apps for Java, PHP, Ruby, GO and Python apps. Focus on apps not dev ops.

What is Aerobatic?

In a nutshell, it's a platform as a service (PaaS) for HTML5 web apps. You could think of it as Heroku for the front-end. It provides a streamlined developer workflow and a suite of cloud-based smart hosting modules that are highly complementary to your custom app code running in the browser.
