Strategic Goals

There has been a recent strong trend to unify software development and operations in order to reduce release cycle times and gain in quality and velocity.

Solutions Developed / Used

The PLUSH project is meant to create a next generation PaaS (Platform as a Service) – that can run multiple applications in multiple computing languages using multiple data backends on a Hybrid-Cloud infrastructure. PLUSH will be the first self-hosted PaaS (able to deploy itself on any private or public cloud) which thus will generate different deployment modes for client applications (public cloud, private cloud, as a hybrid-cloud, on multiple clouds). PLUSH will be a distributed and decentralized system powered by a high-availability grid of micro-services.
