Convox vs Jelastic: 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, Jelastic is detailed as "Java and PHP Cloud Hosting". Jelastic is the next generation of Java hosting platforms which can run and scale ANY Java application with no code changes required.
Convox and Jelastic can be primarily classified as "Platform as a Service" tools.
Some of the features offered by Convox are:
- Instant Deploys
- Runs in your AWS account
- Open Source
On the other hand, Jelastic provides the following key features:
- Set up environment in seconds
- No installation or configuration
- No APIs to code to
"Your own scalable Heroku in 5 minutes" is the primary reason why developers consider Convox over the competitors, whereas "Managed hosting" was stated as the key factor in picking Jelastic.
