Description

What is AppHarbor?

AppHarbor is a fully hosted .NET Platform as a Service. AppHarbor can deploy and scale any standard .NET application to the cloud.

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 cloudControl?

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.
