Nanobox vs OpenShift: What are the differences?
Nanobox: The Ideal Platform for Developers. Nanobox is the ideal platform for developers allowing you to focus on code, not config, by removing the need to deal with environment configuration and dev-ops complexity; OpenShift: 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.
Nanobox and OpenShift can be categorized as "Platform as a Service" tools.
Some of the features offered by Nanobox are:
