AppScale vs Convox: 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, Convox is detailed as "Launch a Private Cloud in Minutes. The simplicity of Heroku. The power of AWS". Convox is an open source Platform as a Service that runs in your own Amazon Web Services (AWS) account. Instead of signing up for a multi-tenant PaaS like Heroku, you can have your own. This gives you privacy and control over your platform and avoids the substantial markup on AWS prices that other platforms charge.
AppScale and Convox can be categorized 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, Convox provides the following key features:
- Instant Deploys
- Runs in your AWS account
- Open Source
