Azure Websites vs Convox: What are the differences?

Developers describe Azure Websites as "Deploy and scale modern websites and web apps in seconds". Azure Websites is a fully managed Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) that enables you to build, deploy and scale enterprise-grade web Apps in seconds. Focus on your application code, and let Azure take care of the infrastructure to scale and securely run it for you. 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.

Azure Websites and Convox belong to "Platform as a Service" category of the tech stack.

Some of the features offered by Azure Websites are:

  • .NET, Java, PHP, Node.js, Python
  • Built-in AutoScale and Load Balancing
  • High Availability with Auto-Patching

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

  • Instant Deploys
  • Runs in your AWS account
  • Open Source

"Ease of deployment" is the top reason why over 14 developers like Azure Websites, while over 5 developers mention "Your own scalable Heroku in 5 minutes" as the leading cause for choosing Convox.

Microsoft, Performance Assessment Network (PAN), and simplement-e are some of the popular companies that use Azure Websites, whereas Convox is used by Bit Zesty, Placeavote, and Truebill. Azure Websites has a broader approval, being mentioned in 73 company stacks & 36 developers stacks; compared to Convox, which is listed in 9 company stacks and 5 developer stacks.

      We use Azure's Websites to host our app and site. Continuous deployment from GitHub is the handiest feature, check in and before you know it your updated site is already online.
