AppFog vs CloudBees: What are the differences?

Developers describe AppFog as "Simple PaaS for Java, Python, Node, .Net, Ruby, PHP, MySQL, Mongo, and PostgreSQL". AppFog provides the infrastructure web developers need to build apps without worrying about IT tasks or having to wait days to get servers ready for writing code. AppFog’s web application technologies include PHP, NodeJS, Ruby, Python, Java, .NET, MySQL, and PostgreSQL. On the other hand, CloudBees is detailed as "Enterprise Jenkins and DevOps". Enables organizations to build, test and deploy applications to production, utilizing continuous delivery practices. They are focused solely on Jenkins as a tool for continuous delivery both on-premises and in the cloud.

AppFog and CloudBees can be primarily classified as "Platform as a Service" tools.

Some of the features offered by AppFog are:

  • Launches fast, runs fast- Varnish Cache and op-code caching run applications with less server load and accelerated performance.
  • Reduces ops work- No more configuring servers, firewalls, Apache, security, or installing frameworks.
