I'm looking for a reliable free cloud service provider where I can deploy my Web App for free. My Web App is not commercial but rather it is for educative purposes. I've recently used Heroku and Openshift, but they are very much limited in the free version and I'm not sure if my Web App would run without any bandwidth issues. I will anyways try them but if you know of any other service provider, please let me know!

Any free service is going to have limitations. If you want high bandwidth, you are unlikely to find a free service that will provide that.

I doubt you'll find decent Java hosting for free. Hosting, especially Java hosting, is just not to be had for free.

Unfortunately, if I have to go for a decent hardware, I need to pay that out of my pocket and I cannot afford that at the moment. I have to stick with free hosting. Atleast to begin with, I might use a combination of Openshift and Heroku where one will host the application and the other, the database. Let me see how it goes.

If your bottleneck is bandwidth then that will make things much worse as your own application operation will now add to your bandwidth usage.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
