Kwatee 2.1.18

Kwatee Agile Deployment is an application that installs and updates software on target servers running Linux, Solaris, Windows, Mac Os X, AIX, ... on your local network or in the cloud. Kwatee can deploy PHP web sites, java web applications, windows services, distributed applications, ... and can deal intelligently with load-balancers. Kwatee is a push deployment system using ssh or telnet connections to carry out incremental updates (only changed files) on remote servers. This means that deployments are orchestrated from a central point of control: Kwatee. Push deployments systems present great advantages over simple pull systems in that they can provide the necessary degree of coordination that is essential to insure high availability in n-tiered applications or load-balanced web applications updates. A friendly web interface makes configuration and customization of deployment setups simple and straightforward. Kwatee also features a RESTful interface which enables unattended repository updates and the triggering of deployments from a continuous integration system or any build tool, using either python CLI helpers, the kwatee ant task, or straight with http REST requests. In most cases, Kwatee requires no re-packaging of existing software packages. A configuration with customizable parameters can be created and deployed in a matter of minutes using off-the-shelf software packages. Why Kwatee? Kwatee has a low entry barrier; you can configure your first deployment in minutes but Kwatee can also tackle arbitrarily complex deployments. Kwatee is lightweight; there`s no proprietary scripting or declarative language and no complicated concepts. Just use plain shell commands combined with scripts in the language of your choice (Perl, Python, PowerShell, ...) where necessary. Home-grown scripts seem like a great idea at first. They are easy to develop and do just what you need, right? Wrong. As your applications evolve and ever so trivial additional deployment requirements keep popping up, the maintenance of these scripts ends up requiring real work which ties up precious developers` time that would be better spent on creating core business value. There exist some good solutions for deploying simple services, say a basic web application, where deployment involves nothing more than pulling files from a subversion repository onto the web server. However, things are often more complicated. What may be more than one server to update in a farm where service continuity is required, or different configuration parameters must be applied on each target server, the software is in binary form and so cannot be deployed from source control, etc., etc. At the other end of the spectrum, there are software deployment solutions that can deal with the most outlandish scenarios but that require an extensive training and significant resources to maintain its configuration current which is an overkill for most organizations needs.
