AppScale vs MongoDB Stitch: What are the differences?
What is 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.
What is MongoDB Stitch? Backend as a Service for web and mobile applications. MongoDB Stitch lets developers focus on building applications rather than on managing data manipulation code, service integration, or backend infrastructure. Stitch lets you focus on building the app users want, not on writing boilerplate backend logic.
AppScale and MongoDB Stitch 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, MongoDB Stitch provides the following key features:
- REST API to MongoDB Atlas
- Declarative data access controls
- Service integrations (AWS S3, Twilio...)
