PaaS platforms

This seems to be a busy space. I’m trying to catch up and understand how these all relate.

See also the blurring line between PaaS and Iaas, the PaaS Cheatsheet, a huge Spreadsheet.

This image helped me understand the layers involved:


  • Flynn
  • Deis: Seems like an extended dokku; deploys apps from git, not so much focused on backing services.
  • Gilliam: Runs a service on the host, per-project YAML file and command line client to deploy, can run backing services.
  • maestro-ng: Will setup docker containers based on a YAML
  • Flynn


  • Velociraptor: Deploys multiple apps on the same host without virtualization.
