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 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.

What is Pivotal Web Services (PWS)?

Pivotal Web Services is a public cloud version of the widely supported Open Source Cloud Foundry PaaS. PWS makes is an ideal platform for the rapid deployment, easy scaling and binding of third party apps for Java, PHP, Ruby, GO and Python apps. Focus on apps not dev ops.
