Description

What is 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.

What is Pivotal Web Services (PWS)?

Pivotal Web Services is a public cloud version of the widely supported Open Source Cloud Foundry PaaS. PWS makes is an ideal platform for the rapid deployment, easy scaling and binding of third party apps for Java, PHP, Ruby, GO and Python apps. Focus on apps not dev ops.

What is Empire?

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.
