What is Nanobox? The Ideal Platform for Developers. Nanobox is the ideal platform for developers allowing you to focus on code, not config, by removing the need to deal with environment configuration and dev-ops complexity.
dotCloud and Nanobox belong to "Platform as a Service" category of the tech stack.
Some of the features offered by dotCloud are:
- Develop faster- Don’t waste time with servers. Just select the services you need, combine them in a stack, and get back to writing code. It’s like playing lego!
- Don't worry about ops- We keep your app running 24/7 with built-in load-balancing, monitoring and failover. Scale in seconds to handle surges in traffic - and only pay for what you need.
- Not just for throw-away apps- Create maintainable, future-proof applications with a service-oriented architecture. Build custom services and network topologies. Need custom support, pricing or SLAs? We do that too.
