Dokku vs Google App Engine: What are the differences?

What is Dokku? Docker powered mini-Heroku in around 100 lines of Bash. Docker powered mini-Heroku. The smallest PaaS implementation you've ever seen.

What is Google App Engine? Build web applications on the same scalable systems that power Google applications. Google has a reputation for highly reliable, high performance infrastructure. With App Engine you can take advantage of the 10 years of knowledge Google has in running massively scalable, performance driven systems. App Engine applications are easy to build, easy to maintain, and easy to scale as your traffic and data storage needs grow.

Dokku and Google App Engine can be categorized as "Platform as a Service" tools.

"Simple" is the primary reason why developers consider Dokku over the competitors, whereas "Easy to deploy" was stated as the key factor in picking Google App Engine.

Dokku is an open source tool with 17.7K GitHub stars and 1.44K GitHub forks. Here's a link to Dokku's open source repository on GitHub.

Snapchat, Movielala, and Feedly are some of the popular companies that use Google App Engine, whereas Dokku is used by MAK IT, Hostr, and Vufuzi.

        What are some alternatives to Dokku and Google App Engine?
        Heroku
        Heroku is a cloud application platform – a new way of building and deploying web apps. Heroku lets app developers spend 100% of their time on their application code, not managing servers, deployment, ongoing operations, or scaling.
        Flynn
        Flynn lets you deploy apps with git push and containers. Developers can deploy any app to any cluster in seconds.
        Docker
        The Docker Platform is the industry-leading container platform for continuous, high-velocity innovation, enabling organizations to seamlessly build and share any application — from legacy to what comes next — and securely run them anywhere
        Kubernetes
        Kubernetes is an open source orchestration system for Docker containers. It handles scheduling onto nodes in a compute cluster and actively manages workloads to ensure that their state matches the users declared intentions.
        Rancher
        Rancher is an open source container management platform that includes full distributions of Kubernetes, Apache Mesos and Docker Swarm, and makes it simple to operate container clusters on any cloud or infrastructure platform.

        With Cloud Endpoints you can create and deploy mobile backend in one hour or less. And it is free (until you need extra scale). I would not recommend to use Java - python is faster and has all new appengine features.

        Pros: everything is in one place: task queue, cron, backend instances for data processing, datastore, mapreduce. Cons: you cannot easily move your code from GAE. Even with special 3rd party services.

        PaaS for back-end components, including external data ingestion APIs, front-end web service APIs, hosting of static front-end application assets, back-end data processing pipeline microservices, APIs to storage infrastructure (Cloud SQL and Memcached), and data processing pipeline task queues and cron jobs. Task queue fan-out and auto-scaling of back-end microservice instances provide parallelism for high velocity data processing.

        checking a swap require a lot of cpu resource, roster normally come out same day of month, every month, at a particular time. Which make very high spike, our flag ship product, iSwap, with the capability looking swap possibility with 10000 other rosters base on user critieria, you need a cloud computing give you this magnitude of computing power. gae did it nicely, user friendly, easy to you, low cost.

        App engine fills in the gaps in the increasingly smaller case where it's necessary for us to run our own APIs.

        Very easy to make cloud computing of ML models , and use containers like Kubernetes.
