Glitch vs OpenShift: What are the differences?

Developers describe Glitch as "The easiest way to build apps and bots". Combining automated deployment, instant hosting and collaborative editing, Gomix gets you straight to coding. The apps you create are instantly live, hosted by us, and always up to date with your latest changes. Build products, prototype ideas, and hack solutions to problems. On the other hand, OpenShift is detailed as "Red Hat's free Platform as a Service (PaaS) for hosting Java, PHP, Ruby, Python, Node.js, and Perl apps". OpenShift is Red Hat's Cloud Computing Platform as a Service (PaaS) offering. OpenShift is an application platform in the cloud where application developers and teams can build, test, deploy, and run their applications.
