Cloud Foundry vs octohost: 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, octohost is detailed as "Simple web focused Dockerfile based PaaS server". octohost helps you host any web site by adding a Dockerfile to your app's source repository.

Cloud Foundry and octohost can be primarily classified as "Platform as a Service" tools.

Some of the features offered by Cloud Foundry are:

  • Application and services centric lifecycle API
  • High performance dynamic routing
  • Buildpack support

On the other hand, octohost provides the following key features:

  • Uses Dockerfiles rather than Procfiles
  • More than 10 languages supported already, and many frameworks
  • Support for Amazon, Digital Ocean, Rackspace

Cloud Foundry and octohost are both open source tools. Cloud Foundry with 605 GitHub stars and 532 forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than octohost with 444 GitHub stars and 32 GitHub forks.
