Convox vs Empire: 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, Empire is detailed as "A Self-Hosted PaaS Built on Docker and Amazon ECS". Empire is a control layer on top of Amazon EC2 Container Service (ECS) that provides a Heroku like workflow. It conforms to a subset of the Heroku Platform API, which means you can use the same tools and processes that you use with Heroku, but with all the power of EC2 and Docker.
Convox and Empire can be primarily classified as "Platform as a Service" tools.
Empire is an open source tool with 2.53K GitHub stars and 156 GitHub forks. Here's a link to Empire's open source repository on GitHub.
