AppScale vs Azure Websites: What are the differences?

Developers describe AppScale as "An open source implementation of Google App Engine. Run your applications in any cloud- public, private or hybrid". AppScale is a platform that allows users to deploy applications developed using the Google App Engine APIs over Amazon EC2, Rackspace, Google Compute Engine, Eucalyptus, Openstack, CloudStack, as well as KVM and VirtualBox. On the other hand, Azure Websites is detailed as "Deploy and scale modern websites and web apps in seconds". Azure Websites is a fully managed Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) that enables you to build, deploy and scale enterprise-grade web Apps in seconds. Focus on your application code, and let Azure take care of the infrastructure to scale and securely run it for you.

AppScale and Azure Websites can be primarily classified as "Platform as a Service" tools.

Some of the features offered by AppScale are:

  • UI & Dashboard
  • Manage Apps, Machines, and Logs
  • Automated Data Persistence

On the other hand, Azure Websites provides the following key features:

  • .NET, Java, PHP, Node.js, Python
  • Built-in AutoScale and Load Balancing

        We use Azure's Websites to host our app and site. Continuous deployment from GitHub is the handiest feature, check in and before you know it your updated site is already online.
