Apollo vs Empire: What are the differences?
What is Apollo? GraphQL server for Express, Connect, Hapi, Koa and more. Build a universal GraphQL API on top of your existing REST APIs, so you can ship new application features fast without waiting on backend changes.
What is Empire? A Self-Hosted PaaS Built on Docker and Amazon ECS. Empire is a control layer on top of Amazon EC2 Container Service (ECS) that provides a Heroku like workflow. It conforms to a subset of the Heroku Platform API, which means you can use the same tools and processes that you use with Heroku, but with all the power of EC2 and Docker.
Apollo and Empire can be primarily classified as "Platform as a Service" tools.
