AWS Elastic Beanstalk vs octohost: What are the differences?

Developers describe AWS Elastic Beanstalk as "Quickly deploy and manage applications in the AWS cloud". Once you upload your application, Elastic Beanstalk automatically handles the deployment details of capacity provisioning, load balancing, auto-scaling, and application health monitoring. On the other hand, octohost is detailed as "Simple web focused Dockerfile based PaaS server". octohost helps you host any web site by adding a Dockerfile to your app's source repository.

AWS Elastic Beanstalk and octohost can be categorized as "Platform as a Service" tools.

Some of the features offered by AWS Elastic Beanstalk are:

  • Elastic Beanstalk is built using familiar software stacks such as the Apache HTTP Server for Node.js, PHP and Python, Passenger for Ruby, IIS 7.5 for .NET, and Apache Tomcat for Java
  • There is no additional charge for Elastic Beanstalk - you pay only for the AWS resources needed to store and run your applications.
  • Easy to begin – Elastic Beanstalk is a quick and simple way to deploy your application to AWS. You simply use the AWS Management Console, Git deployment, or an integrated development environment (IDE) such as Eclipse or Visual Studio to upload your application

On the other hand, octohost provides the following key features:

  • Uses Dockerfiles rather than Procfiles
  • More than 10 languages supported already, and many frameworks
  • Support for Amazon, Digital Ocean, Rackspace
