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 Shelly Cloud?

Shelly Cloud is significantly cheaper than other PaaS hosting providers. You save money by getting all services needed to run your application from one provider. We run our own servers, so there is no "Amazon tax" included in our prices. You pay only for what you use with per-hour metered billing.
