Cloud Foundry vs Gunicorn: 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; Gunicorn: A Python WSGI HTTP Server for UNIX. Gunicorn is a pre-fork worker model ported from Ruby's Unicorn project. The Gunicorn server is broadly compatible with various web frameworks, simply implemented, light on server resources, and fairly speedy.

Cloud Foundry belongs to "Platform as a Service" category of the tech stack, while Gunicorn can be primarily classified under "Web Servers".

Cloud Foundry and Gunicorn are both open source tools. Gunicorn with 5.91K GitHub stars and 1.12K forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than Cloud Foundry with 605 GitHub stars and 534 GitHub forks.

Instagram, Fitocracy, and Kippt are some of the popular companies that use Gunicorn, whereas Cloud Foundry is used by Intel, VMware, and SBT Aqua. Gunicorn has a broader approval, being mentioned in 184 company stacks & 50 developers stacks; compared to Cloud Foundry, which is listed in 8 company stacks and 12 developer stacks.
