Cloud Foundry vs Apache Tomcat: 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, Apache Tomcat is detailed as "An open source software implementation of the Java Servlet and JavaServer Pages technologies". Apache Tomcat powers numerous large-scale, mission-critical web applications across a diverse range of industries and organizations.

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

Cloud Foundry and Apache Tomcat are both open source tools. It seems that Apache Tomcat with 3.44K GitHub stars and 2.36K forks on GitHub has more adoption than Cloud Foundry with 605 GitHub stars and 534 GitHub forks.

ebay, Intuit, and Evernote are some of the popular companies that use Apache Tomcat, whereas Cloud Foundry is used by Intel, VMware, and SBT Aqua. Apache Tomcat has a broader approval, being mentioned in 562 company stacks & 419 developers stacks; compared to Cloud Foundry, which is listed in 8 company stacks and 12 developer stacks.
