AppScale vs dotCloud: 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, dotCloud is detailed as "Deploy, manage and scale any web app". Build your ideal application stack by combining powerful cloud services. Experiment for free, then go live and only pay for what you need. dotCloud enables developers and IT organizations to deploy, manage and scale their applications with unprecedented ease and flexibility by assembling and customizing powerful pre-configured stacks and services.

AppScale and dotCloud 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, dotCloud provides the following key features:

  • Develop faster- Don’t waste time with servers. Just select the services you need, combine them in a stack, and get back to writing code. It’s like playing lego!
  • Don't worry about ops- We keep your app running 24/7 with built-in load-balancing, monitoring and failover. Scale in seconds to handle surges in traffic - and only pay for what you need.
  • Not just for throw-away apps- Create maintainable, future-proof applications with a service-oriented architecture. Build custom services and network topologies. Need custom support, pricing or SLAs? We do that too.

AppScale is an open source tool with 2.39K GitHub stars and 273 GitHub forks. Here's a link to AppScale's open source repository on GitHub.

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.
          Red Hat 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.
