Domino vs Flynn: What are the differences?
Developers describe Domino as "A PaaS for data science - easily run R, Python or Matlab code in the cloud with automatic version control for data, code, and results". Use our cloud-hosted infrastructure to securely run your code on powerful hardware with a single command — without any changes to your code. If you have your own infrastructure, our Enterprise offering provides powerful, easy-to-use cluster management functionality behind your firewall. On the other hand, Flynn is detailed as "Next generation open source platform as a service". Flynn lets you deploy apps with git push and containers. Developers can deploy any app to any cluster in seconds.
Domino and Flynn can be categorized as "Platform as a Service" tools.
Some of the features offered by Domino are:
- Domino Cloud supports the most powerful data analysis languages — Python, R, MATLAB, and Julia
- Modern and powerful cluster management
- Use a single-core machine during development
On the other hand, Flynn provides the following key features:
- Flynn goes beyond 12 factor apps. Run any Linux process written in any language or framework, even stateful apps on your own servers or any public cloud.
- Scaling or adding a new cluster is simple: just add more nodes. Everything is containerized, Flynn takes care of distributing work across the cluster.
- Flynn is 100% free and open source. Flynn works great out of the box, and since Flynn is modular and API-driven it's easy to modify and swap components to suit your needs.
