Flynn vs Jelastic: What are the differences?

Developers describe Flynn 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. 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.

Flynn and Jelastic can be categorized as "Platform as a Service" tools.

Some of the features offered by Flynn are:

  • 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.

On the other hand, Jelastic provides the following key features:

  • Set up environment in seconds
  • No installation or configuration
  • No APIs to code to

"Free" is the top reason why over 3 developers like Flynn, while over 7 developers mention "Managed hosting" as the leading cause for choosing Jelastic.

Flynn is an open source tool with 7.24K GitHub stars and 534 GitHub forks. Here's a link to Flynn's open source repository on GitHub.
