AppScale vs Shelly Cloud: 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; Shelly Cloud: Platform for hosting your Ruby and Rails apps (hosted in Europe). Shelly Cloud is significantly cheaper than other PaaS hosting providers. You save money by getting all services needed to run your application from one provider. We run our own servers, so there is no "Amazon tax" included in our prices. You pay only for what you use with per-hour metered billing.
AppScale and Shelly Cloud belong to "Platform as a Service" category of the tech stack.
Some of the features offered by AppScale are:
