Cloud Foundry vs Convox: What are the differences?

Developers describe Cloud Foundry as "Deploy and scale applications in seconds on your choice of private or public cloud". Cloud Foundry is an open platform as a service (PaaS) that provides a choice of clouds, developer frameworks, and application services. Cloud Foundry makes it faster and easier to build, test, deploy, and scale applications. 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.

      Easy host and monitor the application on the cloud, using a platform that is hight integrated with Spring Framework, but is also agnostic of technology
