What is Convox?
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.

Deploy any of your apps easily on the cloud, auto-scale in a breeze, great customer support, I use it everyday!
We use it for Devoxx France, the biggest developer conference in France
September 16, 2014 02:44
We started to use Clever Cloud for Devoxx France, a conference for developers, 1500 attendees in April. After a quick and successful first deployment, we decided to use it to host the CallForPaper for speakers, a Play2+Scala application. The support is reactive, and we had also the ability to test with their team some new features such as Redis and ElasticSearch.
App hosting designed by developers, for developers
September 16, 2014 05:57
Whether you want to deploy your apps through Git or FTP, Clever-Cloud is a very powerful solution for developers that want to host their apps without losing time on the hosting. Also, if you have any question that is not on their documentation, they have a bunch of very kind people available on their phones. To sum up, Clever-Cloud is the best alternative to Heroku/AWS on the market.
Perfect for polyglot programmers
September 16, 2014 05:55
I work as a freelancer and I'm used to pick the right tool for the right job. As a result I have projects in Node.js, Play framework, JEE with multiple DB engines (postgresql, mysql, couchbase, mongodb)… Using a PaaS with native support of these stacks make me save lots of time. I can also setup beta environments to share ongoing work with my clients before prime-time. Deployment fits well in my workflow (git push). The blue-green deployment process saved my ass several times when I needed to deploy fixes during a surge of traffic.
The support is quick to answer and takes feedback into account.
zero configuration hosting
September 16, 2014 07:09
Awesome hosting for Play Framework applications. We are developers, not administrators. We want to write code, not to delve into configuration details. Clever Cloud liberates your mind for coding.
Great service & Amazing support !

Working perfectly well!

Nothing to add. It's working well.
Easy to setup !
November 23, 2014 09:08
We use it for our Scala conference http://scala.io, it's really easy to setup.
You can checkout our code here https://github.com/ScalaIO/scala.io_web_main/tree/scalaio-2014 (the deployment is a bit more complicated than just
git push but that stays manageable).
One of the best node.js as a service

Say Goodbye to server administration
February 01, 2015 14:17
I'm big fan of PaaS because I hate wasting time in server configuration and I can more focus on business, code... I use clevercloud to host my B2B web application and I love it! It's easy to use and support a lot of programming langages. Deploy in production in 30 sec with just a git push and forget about everything. Say Good bye to server administration ! Special mention for customer support that it reply in less than 24h. Just Awesome !
November 03, 2015 17:51

Perfect for high-traffic website!

These guys rock! We host our social network Uplust on Clever Cloud and we are really happy about the way it is managed. Easy to use, always here to make some great recommendations about structure optimization. I was a bit scary to move to the cloud but it was the perfect timing to satisfy our 250.000 users. Thanks guys, keep up the good work! The little plus: the CEO answers even at 2am. :)
Easy to deploy
October 07, 2015 22:27
We use it for our play2+java application hosting. It is easy to setup the account, evaluate apps with free credits and development DB and finally deployment is very easy for play framework based application and git. Support is very prompt in responding be it email or chat on console.
Scalability rocks !
October 08, 2015 09:36
We manage a few websites, and some of them with quite a bit a traffic (a.k.a more than 2 millions page views per month) so we were looking for a good service to host them. Clever Cloud are fast, have a great support and help us grow without thinking about server management or what so ever. When we need ressources, it deploys and gives us the power we need, when we don't it gives us enough to go. A smart, good and reliable choice. Keep up the good work guys !
Best experience yet
October 27, 2015 12:56
I adopted node.js the year it came out. I have hosted my experimental and general purpose sites on many cloud hosting services, including ones that don't exist any more.
Clever Cloud has been by far the best experience yet. There was a brief, steep learning curve, but I had excellent personal support from Quentin himself and several other excellent techs.
I have high confidence in this service and I will recommend it to my associates and expect to deploy large scale sites soon. All I can say is good job and well done! They do everything right, and its a breeze tracking and controlling many sites.
Simple to use and autoscale
October 19, 2015 00:35
Very simple to use. We achieved to deploy nodejs in one click.
Great Service & Performance

Great & simple tools, performance, good service : work fine !
Easy to use PaaS with stunning support
March 01, 2016 05:36
I use Clever Cloud for my Django apps, their solution is easy to use and the support has no match. I left Heroku, to go and use Clever Cloud and I am more than happy with my choice: it is much more reliable and cheaper on many points.
February 01, 2016 11:09
I went from never having deployed a node.js app to production in very little time. Frankly I did not expect that.
Great job guys!
March 10, 2016 12:13
We use clever to host a CRM and everything is cool in my experience; a lot of tools to deploy in a few clicks, MySQL ? 2 clicks. A web app for your CMS ? 3 clicks. Deploy a new version? 1 git push.
Just easy to setup, easy to maintain, easy to engage new developer on this stack, and if you need some help, ping them and see how fast your question we be answered, at night, on weekends...
OH, and your know what? It just works all the time, and pricing is fair.
Guys: You Rocks !

gives pleasure to code !

Incredibly easy, always available, french !
Great Platform and Teams
July 17, 2016 09:28
I'm the owner of a french iOS development company. Started in 2010, we were using our own servers for developing mobile application backend. Until the day where i have discovered CleverCloud platform and switched to use it. Now we can focus on the development part and let CleverCloud do all the servers stuff. It's easy to configure, easy to use, it performs great and the support is very reactive. And the price is very competitive. I strongly recommend.
August 25, 2016 01:54
I tried various PAAS provider for my Java web app. Clever cloud has won my comparison by far. It is very easy to use and scaling works like a charm!
Phenomenal service and support!
April 14, 2017 15:34
We have recently moved our Playframework app to Clevercloud. It was relatively painless and the few issues we did have was mostly of the RTM type.... in fact, everything came down to minor configuration tweaks on our side... the Clevercloud stack performed flawlessly throughout.
The Clevercloud team doesn't have a moat of "Level 1 Support" people around their technical experts, who try to fob off support queries with canned responses, like a lot of other hosting companies do.... when you have a technical question it gets answered by a member of the core engineering team, pretty much straight away. They are knowledgeable, think out the box and are willing to entertain non-standard requests (within reason).
The platform is accessible via a web-based console or a custom CLI. Both are easy and straightforward to use. Changing your scaling strategy (vertical, horizontal or both) is dead simple, as are deployments (git push). We don't use Github, but I understand things are even easier if you do. The infrastructure also seems quite robust (a little early to tell for sure) and is certainly performant.
For us as primarily software developers who do server admin, etc. mostly in self-defence, the Clevercloud platform and team is heaven sent. It's like having your own data centre, run by your own team of dedicated devops ninjas... at a fraction of the price and none of the HR issues 😄
May 10, 2017 08:12
Very nice !
Good support team: pleasant, responsive, complete and knowledgeable.
Good documentation: Very well guided.
Unusual simplicity: Excellent !
A very nice team :)
An awesome platform run by an awesome team
August 31, 2017 01:04
The platform is really easy to use, everything works as expected, no surprise. The first app I deployed was a Spring Boot app; in less than an hour, I've been able to write the hello world app, subscribe and deploy.
The pricing is fair, and you pay for your use only (no hidden cost such as app storage or something like that).
And the biggest point: the support is awesome. If you miss something, just ask: they will give you the help you need.
To sum up: give a try, and I'm pretty sure you will never go back.
Clever Cloud is awesome!
September 19, 2017 08:18
Clever Cloud helps me a lot!
GAE to Clever Cloud
August 07, 2017 09:27
I use to be using GAE, but now I switch to Clever Cloud, the deployment time is much faster, and more GitHub repo friendly
No more excuses to launching your idea!
July 30, 2015 05:27
Programmers are very proud of their code. Everybody wants to build the best code as possible and they forget about delivering value to the future possible customers and the idea ends not happening.
I saw in Stamplay an opportunity to make all that ideas that were in the drawer happen—it is easy to use, to setup and it delivers what I—as a frontender—always wanted: data. Now, with my abilities I can give life for them, and finally I am launching the applications I've been dreaming for the last years.
Technically speaking, Stamplay delivers an API and there's no effort to get there. Also, all the integrations it gives us such as Stripe, Facebook, etc. are time saviors—I really just need to focus on what matters most, which is designing a great user interface for delivering the value my customers deserve.
Last but not least, are you experiencing a problem or have a question? Oh, no worries—this is your littlest problem because their staff are always ready to help you with the maximum professionalism and politeness you've ever seen.
Elegant & Rapid
September 12, 2015 17:56
Elegant. Rolled out a site fast with auth and automation. I was super-impressed with how as a (very) part-time coder I could just get the job done.
The UI gives a lot of confidence of the care and skill gone into the product.
