Convox vs Shelly Cloud: What are the differences?

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; Shelly Cloud: Platform for hosting your Ruby and Rails apps (hosted in Europe). 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.

Convox and Shelly Cloud belong to "Platform as a Service" category of the tech stack.

Some of the features offered by Convox are:

  • Instant Deploys
  • Runs in your AWS account
  • Open Source

On the other hand, Shelly Cloud provides the following key features:

  • Designed for Ruby and Rails
  • Git-based workflow
  • Easy scaling

"Your own scalable Heroku in 5 minutes" is the primary reason why developers consider Convox over the competitors, whereas "Simple scaling" was stated as the key factor in picking Shelly Cloud.
