Cloud Foundry vs Empire: What are the differences?
Cloud Foundry: 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; Empire: A Self-Hosted PaaS Built on Docker and Amazon ECS. Empire is a control layer on top of Amazon EC2 Container Service (ECS) that provides a Heroku like workflow. It conforms to a subset of the Heroku Platform API, which means you can use the same tools and processes that you use with Heroku, but with all the power of EC2 and Docker.
Cloud Foundry and Empire belong to "Platform as a Service" category of the tech stack.
Cloud Foundry and Empire are both open source tools. It seems that Empire with 2.53K GitHub stars and 156 forks on GitHub has more adoption than Cloud Foundry with 605 GitHub stars and 532 GitHub forks.
