Your Foundation for Innovation
Focus on functionality instead of infrastructure with complete application lifecycle management
- Multi-tenant platform
- Apps are isolated to increase security and improve performance
- Fully automated provisioning of apps, endpoints, databases and incremental resource allocations
- Real time monitoring of platform, apps and databases that trigger alerts for ops
- Integrations framework to support official and community-contributed endpoints
- Automated reproduction of existing applications, including integrations, listeners and events
- Flexible deployment options
- Platform Manager: Systems administrators can see all apps, endpoint statuses, monitoring data and platform status information and can trigger operations tasks like backups, restores, and upgrades.
- Account manager: developers and admins can create, clone and manage apps, billing and invoices.
- Endpoints services: these services interface endpoints with apps. Endpoints must comply with the endpoints services API.
- Apps router: takes all requests to the platform and routes them to the correct component.
- Distributed services: provides services to coordinate the different components of the platform that are distributed across the cluster.
- Scheduler: triggers time events for apps and for the platform.
- Platform services: external services that support the SLINGR platform. These are Google Container Engine to manage the cluster, MMS and Google Compute Engine to provision databases and Mandrill to send system emails.
- Cluster: a set of machines on Google Compute Engine managed by Kubernetes (Google Container Engine).
Template applications share one builder and dev environment that produces meta-data for clones.
Each app has its own instances of endpoints (they aren’t shared across apps). More instances can be added to improve performance for heavy traffic.
