HyScale open-sources app deployment tool for Kubernetes

Provides developer-friendly automation for application teams deploying to Kubernetes

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. & HYDERABAD, India — HyScale today made its app delivery automation tool open-source for development teams who are looking for a friction-free way of deploying to Kubernetes. The open-source move underlines HyScale’s commitment to the app development community that wants to adopt Kubernetes but has to follow a script-heavy, error-prone deployment process. This distracts development teams away from the app, and work on creating k8s deployment files. HyScale simplifies deploying to k8s by providing a service-centric spec, and getting the app URL in return, saving time and effort in dev-testing cycles before taking it to production.

HyScale is an initiative of Pramati Prism Inc., the Mountain View-based startup accelerator arm of Pramati Technologies. HyScale is a member of the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF).

“Developer experiences with k8s are quite complex; there is a clear need for app-centric Kubernetes abstraction and well-defined automation for clear handoff between the dev teams and IT,” said Anoop Balakuntalam, head of HyScale. “With HyScale, developers can now easily deploy their apps to k8s without having to navigate through the associated complexities or write and maintain voluminous manifests and scripts.”

Speaking of Pramati’s foray into the open-source community, Vijay Pullur, Co-founder & CEO of Pramati Prism, said, “Making Kubernetes accessible to the developer community is an important milestone for us. For two decades now, Pramati has shown commitment to making developers more productive by bringing the best of breed tools and platforms to market. Our goal has always been to eliminate complexity in technology adoption.”

Kubernetes continues to witness rapid acceptance across industry verticals for improved cost economics, scalability, and portability of deployments across multiple cloud environments. However, in terms of actual adoption, typical app development teams face steep learning curves, extensive and complex maintenance and ambiguity in ownership, all resulting in slower time to market. HyScale brings to life the belief that all complexity around app deployments can eventually be eliminated and automated.

HyScale is currently available here. An enterprise edition is also available with additional capabilities around CI/CD, multi-cloud, change tracking, and DevSecOps.
