13 Feb 2017 in Deis Workflow, Announcement

Deis PaaS v1 Takes a Bow

The original v1 PaaS based on CoreOS and fleet is at the end of its support lifetime today, February 13, 2017. Deis Workflow provides the same Heroku-inspired experience on Kubernetes, the future of production-grade container orchestration.

The v1 code remains available at deis/deis, but we will stop testing and merging fixes and updates. All focus now is on Workflow and Kubernetes.

Many Moons Have Passed

When the new Platform-as-a-Service product was first released as a "public preview," it leaned on Chef. You could git push deis master a buildpack-based app and have it scheduled to run on multiple Amazon EC2 nodes. That was more than three and a half years ago!

Graduation day for Helm! The first project to exit Kubernetes Incubator.

We are excited to announce that Helm, the package manager for Kubernetes, has officially graduated from the Kubernetes Incubator program!

A huge amount of thanks is due to the Helm user and contributor communities. Your usage, support, development and hard work made this all possible.

The Kubernetes incubation process is designed to set a high quality bar for projects under the Kubernetes umbrella. Projects must not only demonstrate that they are functional, but also that they are active, stable, well-governed, and useful to the broader community. To pass these gates, the Helm project met multiple criteria. We iterated through several stable releases. The community showed its support. And the project continues on its relentless quest to build the best Kubernetes package manager.

February 2017 Community Meeting

Welcome to February! The Deis Workflow community holds monthly meetings to catch up, discuss recent releases and share their experiences. Community meetings are held on the first Thursday of every month, drop by and say hello!

Community Demo: Maciej Małecki

Community member Maciej Małecki recently wrote a blog post detailing a fully featured Platform as a Service, based partially on Deis Workflow. Maciej was kind enough to dive into the details of the platform which brings together cluster, application, database and CDN management into one administrative interface.

Thanks for taking the time to share. It is always great to see how the open source projects are being used in the wild. Interested in sharing a story? Reach out to Seth Goings or Jason Hansen.
