Empire vs Heroku: What are the differences?
Developers describe Empire 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. On the other hand, Heroku is detailed as "Build, deliver, monitor and scale web apps and APIs with a trail blazing developer experience". 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.
Empire and Heroku belong to "Platform as a Service" category of the tech stack.
Empire is an open source tool with 2.53K GitHub stars and 156 GitHub forks. Here's a link to Empire's open source repository on GitHub.
