Deis, an open source PaaS based on Docker

We’re excited to include the following guest blog post by our friends at Deis. Today we’re excited to share Deis with the Docker community. Deis is an open source PaaS based on Docker that runs on public cloud, private cloud and bare metal. Deis allows software teams to deploy and scale almost any application on their own PaaS using a workflow inspired by Heroku. Deis combines Docker’s Linux container engine with infrastructure automation by Chef to create an application platform designed for developers and operations engineers.  With Deis, software teams experience the benefits of PaaS and lightweight virtualization without giving up control of their underlying infrastructure. Deis takes a unique approach, bridging the gap between the DevOps tool chains trusted by today’s sophisticated ops teams and our lightweight, containerized future. For more on Deis itself, as well as our overall Continue reading…

PaaS: Present and Future

In the past few weeks, three great, new Platform as a Service offerings have been announced, using Docker as a base technology. We couldn’t be more thrilled. These include: Voxoz an Erlang Based PaaS Flynn an Open Source PaaS powered by Docker Deis an open source PaaS that makes it easy to deploy and scale LXC containers and Chef nodes used to host applications, databases, middleware and other services. dotCloud itself started life as public Platform as a Service provider, offering one of the first, multi-language PaaS solutions. Docker grew out of that experience, and while we see Docker as having applications far beyond PaaS, we clearly have a great deal of interest in how the PaaS market is developing. In our mind, there are four, big trends emerging in the market:
