Pivotal Web Services (PWS) vs PythonAnywhere: What are the differences?
Developers describe Pivotal Web Services (PWS) as "Deploy, Update and Scale Applications On-Demand". Pivotal Web Services is a public cloud version of the widely supported Open Source Cloud Foundry PaaS. PWS makes is an ideal platform for the rapid deployment, easy scaling and binding of third party apps for Java, PHP, Ruby, GO and Python apps. Focus on apps not dev ops. 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.
Pivotal Web Services (PWS) and PythonAnywhere belong to "Platform as a Service" category of the tech stack.
