Tsuru PaaS - Service industrialization at scale

Jean Marie Joly

Let’s say you are a new systems engineer at Jumia Travel in charge of site reliability.
What would you do if you had to run in production 10 new applications every month? every week? every day? Would you cope with that amount of change without degrading production quality or jeopardizing your budget?
A Platform as a Service (PaaS) may be an adequate solution, however finding the right trade-off in terms of cost, feature and learning curve is not trivial. Tsuru PaaS is what we installed and configured in our infrastructure to radically scale service integration into production, at Jumia Travel.
This talk is about how Tsuru allowed us to handle an increasing flow of applications, widely scale our infrastructure, reduce costs and workload due to growth, and set a high and reproducible quality in production, at a low cost of learning curve.
