Deis is designed for running your own PaaS. You can use public or private clouds, but we still require you run your own controller.

If you're looking for a public PaaS solution, we recommend you take a look at dotCloud or Heroku.

With regard to a commercial offering, OpDemand (the company behind Deis) plans on offering paid support and professional services for Deis deployments once the project reaches stability.

ProTip: If you are building anything that you expect users to run themselves, copy/steal FoundationDB's AWS CloudFormation setup. One click and a couple form fields to setup, one click to tear down.

Many of the companies interested in using Deis want a private cloud deployment, so we have intentionally avoided tying ourselves exclusively to AWS/EC2. That said, we can certainly make the installation process a bit easier in future releases. CloudFormation could be part of that.

I some other company starts a Deis based public PaaS, what would your attitude be? Could they get OpDemand's paid support?

Absolutely. We will be outlining our paid support options soon.

Registration is open for Startup School 2019. Classes start July 22nd.
