Baresoil is free and open-source software that allows developers to run an autoscaling Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS). It is intended to be easy to use, prioritizing simplicity and automation. A geographically redundant, autoscaling Baresoil PaaS can be set up in Amazon AWS account in under 20 minutes. Once created, the PaaS can host multiple projects at different top-level DNS domain and subdomain names, and support multiple active application developers.
By running your own PaaS (rather than using a fully managed commercial service), you gain some benefits that are useful in certain situations:
The following are some practical examples of projects that can be built with little code while scaling on a Baresoil PaaS (cluster):
Next: install Baresoil on your computer to try it out.
