OpenShift vs tsuru: What are the differences?
Developers describe OpenShift 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. On the other hand, tsuru is detailed as "Extensible and open source Platform as a Service software". tsuru is an open source polyglot cloud application platform (PaaS). With tsuru, you don’t need to think about servers at all. You can write apps in the programming language of your choice, back it with add-on resources such as SQL and NoSQL databases, memcached, redis, and many others. You manage your app using the tsuru command-line tool and you deploy code using the Git revision control system, all running on the tsuru infrastructure.
OpenShift and tsuru belong to "Platform as a Service" category of the tech stack.
Some of the features offered by OpenShift are:
- Built-in support for Node.js, Ruby, Python, PHP, Perl, and Java (the standard in today's Enterprise)
- OpenShift is extensible with a customizable cartridge functionality that allows developers to add any other language they wish. We've seen everything from Clojure to Cobol running on OpenShift.
- OpenShift supports frameworks ranging from Spring, to Rails, to Play
On the other hand, tsuru provides the following key features:
- Fast and secure. The entire process is really simple with no special tools needed, just a simple git push.
- Scaling in Tsuru is completely painless. Just add a unit and Tsuru will take care of everything else.
- Tsuru is built to be extensible. Through services you can provide anything your application needs.
"Good free plan" is the top reason why over 95 developers like OpenShift, while over 4 developers mention "Very receptive to contributions" as the leading cause for choosing tsuru.
