Deis vs HatchBox: What are the differences?
Developers describe Deis as "Open Source PaaS that builds upon Docker and CoreOS to provide a lightweight PaaS with a Heroku-inspired workflow". Deis can deploy any application or service that can run inside a Docker container. In order to be scaled horizontally, applications must follow Heroku's 12-factor methodology and store state in external backing services. On the other hand, HatchBox is detailed as "Super easy Rails servers". Configure any server to run Ruby on Rails servers in minutes and without hassle.
Deis and HatchBox belong to "Platform as a Service" category of the tech stack.
Some of the features offered by Deis are:
- Deis can deploy any language or framework using a Dockerfile
- If you don't have a Dockerfile, Deis includes Heroku buildpacks for Ruby, Python, Node.js, Java, Clojure, Scala, Play, PHP, Perl, Dart and Go.
- Deis can be deployed on any system that supports CoreOS including your workstation, as well as most public clouds, private clouds and bare metal.
On the other hand, HatchBox provides the following key features:
- Choose your hosting provider
- Automatic Databases
