Deis vs octohost: 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, octohost is detailed as "Simple web focused Dockerfile based PaaS server". octohost helps you host any web site by adding a Dockerfile to your app's source repository.

Deis and octohost can be primarily classified as "Platform as a Service" tools.

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, octohost provides the following key features:

  • Uses Dockerfiles rather than Procfiles
  • More than 10 languages supported already, and many frameworks
  • Support for Amazon, Digital Ocean, Rackspace

Deis and octohost are both open source tools. It seems that Deis with 6.12K GitHub stars and 863 forks on GitHub has more adoption than octohost with 444 GitHub stars and 32 GitHub forks.
