Description

What is Heroku?

Heroku is a cloud application platform – a new way of building and deploying web apps. Heroku lets app developers spend 100% of their time on their application code, not managing servers, deployment, ongoing operations, or scaling.

What is OpenShift?

OpenShift is Red Hat's Cloud Computing Platform as a Service (PaaS) offering. OpenShift is an application platform in the cloud where application developers and teams can build, test, deploy, and run their applications.

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.
