How to choose between Appcelerator Cloud Services (ACS) and Open Shift?
I am trying to understand the long term strategy of Appcelerator, as they seem to develop ACS while partnering with RedHat... Is there a choice to make? Or, should people use both (i.e. use Open Shift for server side programming needs and ACS for lightweight services)?
Any ideas? Advises? Pros/cons of each solution.
OpenShift requires you to write the server-side code. ACS has server-side services already written and exposed via APIs
It depends on what you need if you can do all the server side code yourself then go with RedHat so you can control your own code. The other advantage is it can be cheaper to host your code and databases and it can sometimes be cheaper depending on your needs.
If you cannot write server side code then go with acs it's lightweight and easy to use and integrate with your app. Because it is apart of appcelerator you do not have to worry about your back-end. This will save time during development.
