What is tsuru?

tsuru is an extensible and open source Platform as a Service (PaaS) that makes application deployments faster and easier. tsuru is an open source polyglot cloud application platform (PaaS). With tsuru, you don’t need to think about servers at all. As an application developer, you can:

  • Write apps in the programming language of your choice
  • Back apps with add-on resources such as SQL and NoSQL databases, including memcached, redis, and many others.
  • Manage apps using the tsuru command-line tool
  • Deploy apps using the Git revision control system
