AppFog vs cloudControl: What are the differences?

Developers describe AppFog as "Simple PaaS for Java, Python, Node, .Net, Ruby, PHP, MySQL, Mongo, and PostgreSQL". AppFog provides the infrastructure web developers need to build apps without worrying about IT tasks or having to wait days to get servers ready for writing code. AppFog’s web application technologies include PHP, NodeJS, Ruby, Python, Java, .NET, MySQL, and PostgreSQL. On the other hand, cloudControl is detailed as "Deploy and scale any app in Java, PHP, Python, Ruby and more". The cloudControl PaaS supports multiple languages and their ecosystems natively and without vendor lock-in through open source buildpacks. Native support means you can continue to use the tools you know and love for development and simply push your code to the cloudControl platform. A buildpack is run on each push and prepares your app for deployment. E.g. compiling source code, minifying CSS and Javascript assets, pulling in dependencies with Maven, Composer, PIP, Bundler and more.

AppFog and cloudControl can be categorized as "Platform as a Service" tools.

Some of the features offered by AppFog are:

  • Launches fast, runs fast- Varnish Cache and op-code caching run applications with less server load and accelerated performance.

  • Plays well with any SCM- Versioning is critical. AppFog is compatible with code management systems like git, svn, and mercurial.

On the other hand, cloudControl provides the following key features:

  • Develop and push code in any language- Native support for Java, PHP, Python, Ruby and more without vendor lock-in.
  • Deploy and scale your apps easily- Launch new versions without downtime and use horizontal or vertical scaling.
  • Use the flexible and secure runtime environment- Run your code in secure Linux containers and easily use Add-on services to add databases and more.
