Cloud 66 vs Heroku: What are the differences?

Developers describe Cloud 66 as "Full Stack Container Management as a Service". Cloud 66 makes Ops easy for developers. It is a single tool built for developers to build, configure and maintain servers and Docker containers on your own servers. On the other hand, Heroku is detailed as "Build, deliver, monitor and scale web apps and APIs with a trail blazing developer experience". Heroku is a cloud application platform – a new way of building and deploying web apps. Heroku lets app developers spend 100% of their time on their application code, not managing servers, deployment, ongoing operations, or scaling.

Cloud 66 and Heroku are primarily classified as "Continuous Deployment" and "Platform as a Service" tools respectively.

Some of the features offered by Cloud 66 are:

  • Provision — build your infrastructure from your code.
  • Backup — peace of mind with regular database backups for all your databases.
  • Security — Simple firewall management & DDoS protection without the stress.

On the other hand, Heroku provides the following key features:

  • Agile deployment for Ruby, Node.js, Clojure, Java, Python, Go and Scala.
  • Run and scale any type of app.
  • Total visibility across your entire app.

"Easy provisioning" is the top reason why over 12 developers like Cloud 66, while over 694 developers mention "Easy deployment" as the leading cause for choosing Heroku.
