Building your app in tsuru

tsuru is an open source polyglot cloud application platform. With tsuru, you don’t need to think about servers at all. You:

  • Write apps in the programming language of your choice
  • Back it with add-on resources (tsuru calls these services) such as SQL and NoSQL databases, memcached, redis, and many others.
  • Manage and Deploy your app using the tsuru command-line tool

tsuru takes care of where in your cluster to run your apps and the services they use. You can then focus on making your apps awesome.
