Cloud Foundry vs tsuru: What are the differences?

Developers describe Cloud Foundry as "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. 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.

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

Some of the features offered by Cloud Foundry are:

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

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.

Cloud Foundry and tsuru are both open source tools. tsuru with 3.14K GitHub stars and 421 forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than Cloud Foundry with 605 GitHub stars and 532 GitHub forks.
