Deis v1.1 - CoreOS Stable Channel

10 Dec 2014

The Deis project is fired up to announce v1.1.0, the first update in our new monthly release cycle. The CoreOS stable channel is now used to provision Deis. Process type management has been improved for all Docker, Procfile and Docker-plus-Procfile workflows.

If you are coming from an earlier version of Deis, read the "Upgrading Deis" documentation for details.

What is Deis?

Deis is an open source PaaS that makes it easy to deploy and manage applications on your own servers. Deis builds upon Docker and CoreOS to provide a lightweight PaaS with a Heroku-inspired workflow.

1.1.0 Summary

New Features

  • Deis now follows CoreOS' Stable channel for updates
  • Process type management has been significantly improved!
  • deisctl respects the --ssh-timeout option flag
  • Integration test suite uploads more verbose logs to S3 for future reference
  • Nginx routers have a NAXSI firewall installed, but disabled by default
  • deis CLI checks against the API version instead of the platform version
  • registry is now scalable. Try deisctl scale registry=3 for added redundancy!

What's Next

Application SSL Support

Thanks to the efforts of @jparkerCAA per-application SSL support should land in Deis very soon. Once merged, users will be able to install custom private keys and SSL certificates to expose HTTPS applications using the Deis router.

Improved Test Infrastructure

We are in the process of planning another round of improvements to our test infrastructure. The goals are to speed our test suites, eliminate the build queue and increase coverage to include operational aspects like upgrades and HA.

Mesos Integration

We have an alpha version of Deis + Mesos running. We are polishing it with help from our friends at Mesosphere and hope to announce a production-ready version soon. If you are interested in helping test Deis on Mesos, please find us in IRC!
