Jelastic vs PythonAnywhere: What are the differences?
Developers describe Jelastic 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. On the other hand, PythonAnywhere is detailed as "Micro PaaS for Python web apps. Develop and host Python from your browser". It's somewhat unique. A small PaaS that supports web apps (Python only) as well as scheduled jobs with shell access. It is an expensive way to tinker and run several small apps.
Jelastic and PythonAnywhere belong to "Platform as a Service" category of the tech stack.
"Managed hosting" is the top reason why over 7 developers like Jelastic, while over 4 developers mention "Web apps" as the leading cause for choosing PythonAnywhere.
