Convox vs Dokku: 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, Dokku is detailed as "Docker powered mini-Heroku in around 100 lines of Bash". Docker powered mini-Heroku. The smallest PaaS implementation you've ever seen.
