DCHQ.io Hosted PaaS is software as as service platform that allow users to automate the deployment, service discovery, and management of Docker applications on physical and cloud infrastructure. The platform accelerates IT modernization and provides developers an express pathway to containerizing their monolithic enterprise applications in addition to automating the deployment and management of new microservices architectures.
DCHQ automates the provisioning and auto-scaling of Docker-enabled infrastructure on 18 different clouds and virtualization platforms (http://dchq.co/docker-infrastructure-as-a-service.html) -- like VMware vSphere, OpenStack, Cloudstack, Amazon EC2, Google Compute Engine, Microsoft Azure, Rackspace, IBM SoftLayer, DigitalOcean and many others.
The platform's application composition framework provides core enhancements to Docker Compose (http://dchq.co/docker-compose.html) supporting advanced plug-ins with lifecycle stages to handle service discovery use cases. It also supports cross-image environment variable bindings, automatic container IP retrieval and injection, and additional parameters like cluster_size, host, and registry_id. The service discovery framework takes care of re-configuring the load balancers and other application components when a cluster is scaled in/out or when the containers are stopped/started.
Once an application is deployed, a user can access monitoring, alerts and notifications, continuous delivery using Jenkins, application backups, scale in/out, in-browser terminal to access the containers, log viewing, and container updates using custom plug-ins.
