Empire vs Jelastic: 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, Jelastic is detailed as "Java and PHP Cloud Hosting". Jelastic is the next generation of Java hosting platforms which can run and scale ANY Java application with no code changes required.
Empire and Jelastic 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.
