Description

What is Google App Engine?

Google has a reputation for highly reliable, high performance infrastructure. With App Engine you can take advantage of the 10 years of knowledge Google has in running massively scalable, performance driven systems. App Engine applications are easy to build, easy to maintain, and easy to scale as your traffic and data storage needs grow.

What is Convox?

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.

What is cloudControl?

The cloudControl PaaS supports multiple languages and their ecosystems natively and without vendor lock-in through open source buildpacks. Native support means you can continue to use the tools you know and love for development and simply push your code to the cloudControl platform. A buildpack is run on each push and prepares your app for deployment. E.g. compiling source code, minifying CSS and Javascript assets, pulling in dependencies with Maven, Composer, PIP, Bundler and more.
