I used AppFog for my masters' projects implementing AppFog cloud service with Java and Mongo. We created multiple instances of the projects and it was being used by more than 50 students at once. Our system was designed for a customer to select a particular model of car for purchase within five different varieties of car sellers with various models.
  • Appfog is one of the best PAAS service providers. It has many technologies to choose from with variety of platform and databases.
  • It has good performance and capacity to withstand multiple instances for multiple users. It is highly scalable.
  • Though it is good and easy for developers, it lacks operational activities and monitoring tools.
  • It is easy to deploy WAR on AppFog with its console but sometimes it can lack on the performance and feasibility.
It was very good to use in small scale projects. Considering the high end projects with many instances and multi-platform architectures, it is better to test before the application is deployed. I think few of the questions can be general - who are the system users and what size is the application focussing on? How much resources are required? Will the application require any additional services?

AppFog comes handy when building a prototype. A typical prototype that requires a quick web service deployment with a database layer is where I had used AppFog. It isn't used across the organization. I have also used AppFog as a student at my university. Our team used it for bringing our projects to the cloud.
  • Quick deployment of pre-built virtual machines
  • Some of the virtual machines also are readily available with a pack of softwares
  • Good Stability. Using it as a student, I have never experienced any downtime issues with the projects deployed on AppFog.
  • A little slow as compared to AWS.
  • Not sure about the latest versions, but compared to its competitors, it was missing out on some services.
  • Used to be a free service, but isn't completely free anymore.
AppFog is good for academic purposes. It comes in very handy for cloud deployments.
