    At Lob, we currently use Convox as our deployment platform, a “roll your own Platform-as-a-Service” that you can install to handle container orchestration on AWS’s ECS (Elastic Container Service). Convox is showing its age and this year we began the process of replacing Convox with HashiCorp’s Nomad, a flexible workload orchestrator to deploy and manage our containers on AWS.

  • Launch HN: Porter (YC S20) – Open-source Heroku in your own cloud
    6 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 30 Apr 2021
    On the one hand, I don't want to post a shallow dismissal on your big launch day. On the other hand, this does look like something that's been tried a dozen times before. To name one example, Convox (https://convox.com/) started out using ECS on AWS, but more recently switched to being a multi-cloud platform on top of Kubernetes. Cloud66 has also tried a few things in this space. What sets Porter apart from other products in this apparently crowded field?

    Yes, I'm a huge fan of Convox [1]. One thing that don't make very clear is that the "Convox Pro" hosted console is optional, and convox/rack [2] is completely free and open source.

    I'm sad to see that Convox still isn't getting the recognition it deserves, because it really is like having Heroku in your own AWS account.
