Flynn is an open source Platform as a Service

Flynn is designed to run anything that can run on Linux, not just stateless web apps. Flynn comes with highly available database appliances, including PostgreSQL, MySQL, and MongoDB.

Eventually we want Flynn to be the only tool developers and ops teams need to develop, deploy, and manage running software.

You can learn more about Flynn at our website.

The Flynn website also has documentation.


Flynn is very actively developed by Prime Directive, Inc. and the Flynn community.
