Deis Workflow vs Empire: What are the differences?
Developers describe Deis Workflow as "Open source Kubernetes PaaS". Deis Workflow is an open source PaaS that makes it easy to deploy and manage applications on your own servers. Workflow builds upon Kubernetes and Docker to provide a lightweight PaaS with a Heroku-inspired workflow. On the other hand, Empire is detailed as "A Self-Hosted PaaS Built on Docker and Amazon ECS". Empire is a control layer on top of Amazon EC2 Container Service (ECS) that provides a Heroku like workflow. It conforms to a subset of the Heroku Platform API, which means you can use the same tools and processes that you use with Heroku, but with all the power of EC2 and Docker.
Deis Workflow and Empire belong to "Platform as a Service" category of the tech stack.
Deis Workflow and Empire are both open source tools. It seems that Empire with 2.53K GitHub stars and 156 forks on GitHub has more adoption than Deis Workflow with 1.23K GitHub stars and 177 GitHub forks.
