Shipa, a cloud-native application management framework built to manage the full application lifecycle, launched open-sourcing Ketch, Shipa’s deployment engine, under Apache License Version 2.0. This open-source release follows the general availability launch of Shipa’s full application management framework in October.
Shipa’s deployment engine
Ketch enables application developers to manage the entire deployment process at the application level. Developers can stay focused on writing code and do not need any Kubernetes expertise to successfully deploy applications running on Kubernetes.
Bruno Andrade, Founder and CEO of Shipa, said,
“By open sourcing Ketch, the cloud native community can easily try and leverage this powerful cloud native application deployment engine. Enterprises continue to struggle with the app deployment process on Kubernetes. Ketch is the perfect way to keep developers’ focus on code – not the infrastructure – as they scale with Kubernetes. Shipa’s vision is to manage the full application lifecycle, from code to post-deployment. With Ketch now available as a fully open source technology, there’s no faster and easier way for the community to get started.”
Shipa is funded by Engineering Capital and Jump Capital; advisors include Google’s Kelsey Hightower, Mastercard’s Ken Owens, and Lyft’s Matt Klein. Shipa is a Silver member of the Cloud Native Computing Foundation and a general member within the Continuous Delivery Foundation.
