Synerty Peek

What is Peek

Peek is semi distributed pluggable python platform.

Peek provides a platform for Python similar to the functionality JBOSS provides for JAVA. (Or at least that is in the intention, it's early days)

The Big Bang

Peek was created and is maintained by Synerty to be a distributed, pluggable python platform that provides many of the core services needed for enterprise applications.

We wanted to integrate smaller peices of code, that can leverage different existing boilerplate code which the platform provides. For example, services for parallel processing or services for business integrations.

The Peek Platform allows developers to better write and integrate smaller units of code.

Synerty uses the Peek platform to provide scalable enterprise grade applications to the power utilities sector.

Cross Platform

Peek is compatible with the following operating systems

  • Linux (Preferred)
    • Debian 8
