Convox vs Deis: What are the differences?

Developers describe Convox as "Launch a Private Cloud in Minutes. The simplicity of Heroku. The power of AWS". 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. On the other hand, Deis is detailed as "Open Source PaaS that builds upon Docker and CoreOS to provide a lightweight PaaS with a Heroku-inspired workflow". Deis can deploy any application or service that can run inside a Docker container. In order to be scaled horizontally, applications must follow Heroku's 12-factor methodology and store state in external backing services.

Convox and Deis belong to "Platform as a Service" category of the tech stack.

Some of the features offered by Convox are:

  • Instant Deploys
  • Runs in your AWS account
  • Open Source

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

  • Deis can deploy any language or framework using a Dockerfile
  • If you don't have a Dockerfile, Deis includes Heroku buildpacks for Ruby, Python, Node.js, Java, Clojure, Scala, Play, PHP, Perl, Dart and Go.
  • Deis can be deployed on any system that supports CoreOS including your workstation, as well as most public clouds, private clouds and bare metal.

"Your own scalable Heroku in 5 minutes" is the top reason why over 5 developers like Convox, while over 15 developers mention "12-factor methodology" as the leading cause for choosing Deis.

Deis is an open source tool with 6.12K GitHub stars and 863 GitHub forks. Here's a link to Deis's open source repository on GitHub.
