Obviously I disagree with the specifics of relative merits. As a nitpick, Lattice was a project to extract core components out of Cloud Foundry into a self-contained unit intended for experimentation, not a standalone component folded into CF.

The feedback was that Lattice is not what developers wanted, so it's been wound up in favour of MicroPCF[1], which is a single VM image that runs an entire, actual Cloud Foundry installation.

When developers decide they want to scale up to any size, they simply retarget a regular AWS/vSphere/OpenStack/Azure CF API server and push again.

I'm sure Convox has a single-VM version I can tinker with on my laptop.
