Clever Cloud vs Google App Engine: What are the differences?

What is Clever Cloud? Deploy and run apps with bulletproof infrastructure, automatic scaling, and fair pricing. Clever Cloud is a polyglot cloud application platform. The service helps developers to build applications with many languages and services, with auto-scaling features and a true pay-as-you-go pricing model.

What is Google App Engine? Build web applications on the same scalable systems that power Google applications. Google has a reputation for highly reliable, high performance infrastructure. With App Engine you can take advantage of the 10 years of knowledge Google has in running massively scalable, performance driven systems. App Engine applications are easy to build, easy to maintain, and easy to scale as your traffic and data storage needs grow.

Clever Cloud and Google App Engine belong to "Platform as a Service" category of the tech stack.

Some of the features offered by Clever Cloud are:

  • Auto-scalability
  • Multi-language
  • SQL and NoSQL

On the other hand, Google App Engine provides the following key features:

  • Zero to sixty: Scale your app automatically without worrying about managing machines.
  • Supercharged APIs: Supercharge your app with services such as Task Queue, XMPP, and Cloud SQL, all powered by the same infrastructure that powers the Google services you use every day.
  • You're in control: Manage your application with a simple, web-based dashboard allowing you to customize your app's performance.

"Quick & easy setup", "Amazing support" and "Ultra fast answer to any question" are the key factors why developers consider Clever Cloud; whereas "Easy to deploy", "Auto scaling" and "Good free plan" are the primary reasons why Google App Engine is favored.

Snapchat, Accenture, and Movielala are some of the popular companies that use Google App Engine, whereas Clever Cloud is used by Accenture, Uplust, and Rude Baguette. Google App Engine has a broader approval, being mentioned in 481 company stacks & 343 developers stacks; compared to Clever Cloud, which is listed in 21 company stacks and 3 developer stacks.
