Convox vs PythonAnywhere: What are the differences?

What is Convox? 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.

What is PythonAnywhere? Micro PaaS for Python web apps. Develop and host Python from your browser. It's somewhat unique. A small PaaS that supports web apps (Python only) as well as scheduled jobs with shell access. It is an expensive way to tinker and run several small apps.

Convox and PythonAnywhere can be categorized as "Platform as a Service" tools.

"Your own scalable Heroku in 5 minutes" is the primary reason why developers consider Convox over the competitors, whereas "Web apps" was stated as the key factor in picking PythonAnywhere.
