We’re thrilled to announce the launch of Flynn Gamma.
Flynn is a unified, open source platform for running apps, websites, databases, and services at scale.
It’s our first step towards a world where computers run the way they’re supposed to. A world where infrastructure is fully open and transparent, super-accessible, incredibly secure and infinitely scalable. A world with rock-solid reliability where everything is also incredibly easy to use.
§ Getting Started
We try hard to make Flynn as easy to use as possible. Whether you want to run it on your local machine, the cloud, or your own server, we’ve got you covered.
It’s easy to get your first app up and running using buildpacks, or by deploying straight from GitHub using our web dashboard.
§ What’s Changed
During over 100 releases since the beta in August we added overlay networking, secure updates, volume management with ZFS, an integration test suite, documentation, and example apps, completely rewriting the Postgres appliance, router, and service discovery along the way.
We’re calling this release Gamma because it’s much further along than our Beta release, but until it meets our standard for everyone to use in production, we won’t call it production stable.
§ What’s Next
Our highest priority is making Flynn the most reliable tool you use. We’ll spend most of our time in the coming weeks working closely with early adopters to work out any remaining bugs and rough spots before blazing forward with more features.
We recently raised over a million dollars from investors who share our vision for Flynn including RRE and IWNA. This capital ensures Flynn will reach 1.0 this year.
We would also like to take this opportunity to thank all the individuals and companies who have been so supportive of Flynn during the development process. We couldn’t have done it without you.
We want to know how you’re using Flynn and how we can make your life better. Find us on GitHub, IRC (#flynn on freenode), or drop us a note.
We invite you to join us at our meetup in San Francisco this Thursday to hear more about Flynn and meet our team. RSVP here
