Convox vs Stackato: 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, Stackato is detailed as "Enterprise ready private PaaS based on the Cloud Foundry open-source project and Docker". Stackato runs on top of your cloud infrastructure, and is the middleware from which your applications are launched. Developers simply upload their application source files to Stackato via IDE or command-line. Stackato automatically configures the required language runtimes, web frameworks, and data and messaging services.
Convox and Stackato can be categorized 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, Stackato provides the following key features:
- Web console
- Activity timeline
