What is glu?

glu is a free/open source deployment and monitoring automation platform.

What problems does glu solve?

glu is solving the following problems:

  • deploy (and monitor) applications to an arbitrary large set of nodes:

  • efficiently

  • with minimum/no human interaction

  • securely

  • in a reproducible manner

  • ensure consistency over time (prevent drifting)

  • detect and troubleshoot quickly when problems arise

How does it work?

glu takes a very declarative approach, in which you describe/model what you want, and glu can then:

  • compute the set of actions to deploy/upgrade your applications
  • ensure that it remains consistent over time
  • detect and alert you when there is a mismatch

Check the rest of the documentation for more details (including screenshots and diagrams).
