Empire vs MongoDB Stitch: What are the differences?
What is Empire? 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.
What is MongoDB Stitch? Backend as a Service for web and mobile applications. MongoDB Stitch lets developers focus on building applications rather than on managing data manipulation code, service integration, or backend infrastructure. Stitch lets you focus on building the app users want, not on writing boilerplate backend logic.
Empire and MongoDB Stitch can be categorized as "Platform as a Service" tools.
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.
