The creator of Kel, a devops-focused PaaS for Web applications has released an open source edition of its platform.
Kel is based on the container-cluster management system Kubernetes and was originally made to run Gondor, a managed host for Python and Django apps. Eldarion, the company behind Gondor, hopes Kel will appeal to developers who want a PaaS that’s built with workflow in mind, not just app deployment.
Workflow is king
According to James Tauber, co-founder and CEO of Eldarion, Kel’s big distinction from other PaaSes is its focus on how developers work across the lifecycle of an application: development, QA, testing, staging, and production.
