Deis vs Modulus: What are the differences?

Deis: 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; Modulus: Hosting, Scaling, and Data for Node.js applications. Modulus is a premier Node.js hosting platform that provides a complete technology stack for application developers. This includes custom SSL, WebSockets, MongoDB, statistics, and more.

Deis and Modulus belong to "Platform as a Service" category of the tech stack.

Some of the features offered by Deis are:
