As whole, they are all Ruby hosting environment of PaaS

Heroku - owned by Sales Force, hence it is up to the owner discretion (and not the consumer or open) on its provisioning, you do not get any access to the VM hence it is more of using "as is" from developer pt of view. understand it uses  manually scale your application using some sort of containerization linux based soln (dyno)
> Quick and fast use of what it is already.

EngineYard - Dependent on the hosting on Amazon’s EC2 IaaS cloud hardwarefor storage, IP Addresses and backup. It has offers for an Windows Azure alternative (starting est 2013). More on the steeper cost for production services. Also partly owned by Oracle and Amazon - therefore as for support wise, they are the more "preferred" platform, though they still  offers more access to the underlying VM allowing more customization but also requires more sysadmin skills and time
> More "hand holding" for needs rather than use as it is (with better documentation) but cost is factor of consideration

Elastic Beanstalk -  Quite close to EngineYard and scaling automatically cum allow customisation. Likewise uses free AWS Elastic Beanstalk. It is a more of pay as you use scheme. it tends to be balance of service and cost needed for Heroku and EngineYard.
> Maybe as development and the pay as you use has to be wary of esp if traffic surge can lose sight easily if exposed in long term..
