Convox vs octohost: 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, octohost is detailed as "Simple web focused Dockerfile based PaaS server". octohost helps you host any web site by adding a Dockerfile to your app's source repository.
Convox and octohost 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, octohost provides the following key features:
- Uses Dockerfiles rather than Procfiles
- More than 10 languages supported already, and many frameworks
- Support for Amazon, Digital Ocean, Rackspace
