You own little heroku

What do you like best?

Simplicity. Heroku got it right when they focused on making deployments easy for developers. Deis follows in those steps. You can even use heroku buildpacks to get your deployments right.

What do you dislike?

When it screws up, it screws up catastrophically.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you don't know much about infrastructure, Deis is perfect. Gets you going lightning fast. Very similar to heroku. But if you DO know about infrastructure and a bit of devops, you might want to do things yourself so you understand the magic behind Deis. Deis is a good stepping stone.

We evaluated Deis, but found that it didn't meet our business needs. However, Deis is really quite nice to work with.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Devops. Deis makes devops a lot simpler.

amazingly versatile and highly scalable micro-PaaS project with very little complicated overhead.

What do you like best?

- Deis is an open source project; there are numerous very good contributors to this project giving it a firm support

- Deis has built-in docker support, and it drives the meaning of micro-PaaS using docker.

-Adopted key features of CoreOS to drive their clustered, highly-distributed architecture.

- Uses CoreOS as a wholesale, meaning same OS for driving docker and also for service discovery.

- has a robust, scalable systems layer to drive service discovery, task scheduling, and cluster management based on top of CoreOS

- very similar spec format to Dockerfile, for application management and whole platform alike.

- service oriented architecture, which is very much important in micro-PaaS based projects.

What do you dislike?

- Complete CoreOS dependency, once you adopt Deis, you have to use etcd for example with discoerd for service discovery.

- at the moment, doesnt possess a good monitoring solution.

- Database services appeal is weak

- Install and setting up Deis require more experience with infrastructure development.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Please get yourself well acqauinted with CoreOS and Docker. Deis is completely hands in glove with CoreOS and golang, so these two tech are must precursor before using CoreOS.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

large datacenter agnostic , highly scalable PaaS framework that uses docker as baseline technology to handle large volume of distributed builds.

What Cloud Platform as a Service (PaaS) solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

Compared multiple PaaS systems, one of them was Deis

What do you like best?

Apparently it already has version 1, which is quite good and comforting when compared to other platforms as a service. It's also Open Source, written in Go so I really like it from developers perspective

What do you dislike?

not sure whether it's a good choice when thinking long term - hybrid cloud (private + public) could would present many obstacles. Choosing other platforms like openshift or kubernetes would enable seamless migration between your on premise solution to public cloud (GCE) without modifying your templates.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

PaaS is the future, it enables developers to deploy and control their applications. They also move away the need to manually install databases, applications, caches and configure loadbalances.

Deis is currently the best OpenSource PaaS on the Market

What do you like best?

Deis was very easy to setup and was able to be customized to our needs at Brandfolder.

What do you dislike?

Open source as it is, Deis was meant to be a self-hosted alternative to Heroku. But to be honest, its not quite there yet. While deis is great for the command line user, it still lacks the beautiful user interface companion to the command line as Heroku does.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Have a good understanding of DevOps and CoreOS. When it comes to debugging sometimes (but not often) you will need to get your hands dirty.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Cost, Control, Deployability. Deis has absolutely helped us with these three facts, cutting our infrastructure costs by half.

Solid PaaS based on great technology, but not quite there yet

What do you like best?

It uses the great environment provided by CoreOS and is pretty much the best "light" PaaS solution when you're running a bunch of servers handling user traffic. The monitoring is quite nice too and support for Heroku buildpacks provides a solid base for any project, so that you can set the whole thing up in just a few hours.

What do you dislike?

For smaller deployments, you can't reuse the server for both database and frontend handling. It still requires service support, without that it will not gain that many users.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Encrypted storage, email and so on. It simplified our continuous delivery process, which was the greatest benefit.

Deis completes Kubernetes

What do you like best?

Deis allows your ops team to focus on infrastructure and your developers to focus on their apps. It's the satisfying developer experience of Heroku without the pain and cost of Heroku.

What do you dislike?

Deis has gone through several iterations that have kept it in a continuously stable-beta-like state, but it feels justified given where it's ended up.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Node.js deployment onto bare metal servers in a managed datacenter.
