With Polycrate you can translate complex systems into comprehensive tools as code
Polycrate is the tool McGyver really needed. Integrate all the tools, scripts and snippets you use to build your infrastructure and glue them together in a Polycrate workspace.
Polycrate has been built out of the need for a tool that not only integrates existing tooling and languages, but also frees the user from dealing with the necessary runtime requirements these tools may have. In more than a decade of building and operating systems, you realize that there never is the one and only approach to do things – and migrating between paradigms, technologies and systems is always hard, which is why “never touch a running system” will probably never go out of style.
Yet, the technological innovation of the past 5 years has definitely outpaced the market’s ability to re-arrange and update existing architectures, which is why there’s a huge gap between state-of-the art and in-production technology. And this gap is going to increase.
Polycrate tries to close this gap by providing a holistic way to design, build and operate IT systems. It allows you to combine existing systems with new ones and manage them in a deterministic workspace that you can then automate and build upon.
