AppScale vs Cloud Foundry: What are the differences?

AppScale: 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; Cloud Foundry: Deploy and scale applications in seconds on your choice of private or public cloud. Cloud Foundry is an open platform as a service (PaaS) that provides a choice of clouds, developer frameworks, and application services. Cloud Foundry makes it faster and easier to build, test, deploy, and scale applications.

AppScale and Cloud Foundry 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, Cloud Foundry provides the following key features:

  • Application and services centric lifecycle API
  • High performance dynamic routing
  • Buildpack support

AppScale and Cloud Foundry are both open source tools. It seems that AppScale with 2.39K GitHub stars and 273 forks on GitHub has more adoption than Cloud Foundry with 605 GitHub stars and 532 GitHub forks.

        What are some alternatives to AppScale and Cloud Foundry?
        Google App Engine
        Google has a reputation for highly reliable, high performance infrastructure. With App Engine you can take advantage of the 10 years of knowledge Google has in running massively scalable, performance driven systems. App Engine applications are easy to build, easy to maintain, and easy to scale as your traffic and data storage needs grow.
        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.
        AWS Elastic Beanstalk
        Once you upload your application, Elastic Beanstalk automatically handles the deployment details of capacity provisioning, load balancing, auto-scaling, and application health monitoring.
        Apollo
        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.
        OpenShift
        OpenShift is Red Hat's Cloud Computing Platform as a Service (PaaS) offering. OpenShift is an application platform in the cloud where application developers and teams can build, test, deploy, and run their applications.
