Convox vs Flynn: What are the differences?

What is Convox? 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.

What is Flynn? Next generation open source platform as a service. Flynn lets you deploy apps with git push and containers. Developers can deploy any app to any cluster in seconds.

Convox and Flynn 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, Flynn provides the following key features:

  • Flynn goes beyond 12 factor apps. Run any Linux process written in any language or framework, even stateful apps on your own servers or any public cloud.
  • Scaling or adding a new cluster is simple: just add more nodes. Everything is containerized, Flynn takes care of distributing work across the cluster.
  • Flynn is 100% free and open source. Flynn works great out of the box, and since Flynn is modular and API-driven it's easy to modify and swap components to suit your needs.

"Your own scalable Heroku in 5 minutes" is the top reason why over 5 developers like Convox, while over 3 developers mention "Free" as the leading cause for choosing Flynn.

Flynn is an open source tool with 7.24K GitHub stars and 534 GitHub forks. Here's a link to Flynn's open source repository on GitHub.
