OpenPitrix is a web-based open-source system to package, deploy and manage different types of applications including Kubernetes application, microservice application and serverless applications into multiple cloud environment such as AWS, Azure, Kubernetes, QingCloud, OpenStack, VMWare etc.

Definition: Pitrix ['paitriks] means the matrix of PaaS and IaaS which makes it easy to develop, deploy, manage applications including PaaS on various runtime environments, i.e., Pitrix = PaaS + IaaS + Matrix. It also means a matrix that contains endless (PI - the Greek letter "π") applications.


OpenPitrix originates from QingCloud AppCenter which helps developers to create cloud-based enterprise applications with all features of cloud application, such as agility, elasticity, scalability, monitoring and so on. ISV can sell their Apps on the application marketplace. Also, the learning curve of developing an App is extremely low. Many customers love AppCenter but raise the request that they hope it can support their multi-cloud environment instead of QingCloud exclusively, so OpenPitrix was born in this scenario, see OpenPitrix Insight for more details.


  • Multi-cloud: Support multiple runtimes, such as AWS, Aliyun, Azure, Kubernetes, QingCloud, OpenStack, VMWare and so on.
  • Multiple Apps types: Support a variety of application types including VM-based application, Kubernetes application, microservice application and serverless application.
  • Application Lifecycle Management: Developers can easily create and package applications, make flexible application versioning and publishing, others can check, test and quick deploy applications through the application marketplace.
  • Extendable and Pluggable: The types of runtime and application are highly extendable and pluggable, regardless of what new application type or runtime emerges.
  • RBAC for organization: Provide multiple roles including regular user, ISV, developers and admin, admin can also create custom roles and department.
  • Commercial Operation (Coming soon): Provide cloud metering and billing for application marketplace, ISV can sell and operate published applications.


  • See the Screenshots of OpenPitrix to have a most intuitive understanding of OpenPitrix dashboard.
  • See this document that elaborates on the OpenPitrix features and introduction from a professional point of view.


The following flow chart illustrates the application lifecycle management process and workflow with different role of users, see the Quick Start Guide for more details.
