Clever Cloud vs Deis: What are the differences?
Clever Cloud: Deploy and run apps with bulletproof infrastructure, automatic scaling, and fair pricing. Clever Cloud is a polyglot cloud application platform. The service helps developers to build applications with many languages and services, with auto-scaling features and a true pay-as-you-go pricing model; Deis: Open Source PaaS that builds upon Docker and CoreOS to provide a lightweight PaaS with a Heroku-inspired workflow. Deis can deploy any application or service that can run inside a Docker container. In order to be scaled horizontally, applications must follow Heroku's 12-factor methodology and store state in external backing services.
Clever Cloud and Deis can be primarily classified as "Platform as a Service" tools.
Some of the features offered by Clever Cloud are:
- SQL and NoSQL
On the other hand, Deis provides the following key features:
- Deis can deploy any language or framework using a Dockerfile
- If you don't have a Dockerfile, Deis includes Heroku buildpacks for Ruby, Python, Node.js, Java, Clojure, Scala, Play, PHP, Perl, Dart and Go.
- Deis can be deployed on any system that supports CoreOS including your workstation, as well as most public clouds, private clouds and bare metal.
"Quick & easy setup" is the primary reason why developers consider Clever Cloud over the competitors, whereas "12-factor methodology" was stated as the key factor in picking Deis.
