AppScale vs Cloud Foundry: What are the differences?

AppScale: An open source implementation of Google App Engine. Run your applications in any cloud- public, private or hybrid. AppScale is a platform that allows users to deploy applications developed using the Google App Engine APIs over Amazon EC2, Rackspace, Google Compute Engine, Eucalyptus, Openstack, CloudStack, as well as KVM and VirtualBox; Cloud Foundry: Deploy and scale applications in seconds on your choice of private or public cloud. Cloud Foundry is an open platform as a service (PaaS) that provides a choice of clouds, developer frameworks, and application services. Cloud Foundry makes it faster and easier to build, test, deploy, and scale applications.

AppScale and Cloud Foundry can be primarily classified as "Platform as a Service" tools.

Some of the features offered by AppScale are:

  • UI & Dashboard
  • Manage Apps, Machines, and Logs
  • Automated Data Persistence

On the other hand, Cloud Foundry provides the following key features:

  • Application and services centric lifecycle API
  • High performance dynamic routing
  • Buildpack support

AppScale and Cloud Foundry are both open source tools. It seems that AppScale with 2.39K GitHub stars and 273 forks on GitHub has more adoption than Cloud Foundry with 605 GitHub stars and 532 GitHub forks.
