What is NAIS?

NAIS is an open source application platform that aims to provide our developers with the best possible tools needed to develop and run their applications.

Getting started with NAIS

If you are just starting out developing applications and wish to deploy them to NAIS, it is highly recommended to read through the Getting started section!

Why NAIS exists

When you have a large development organisation, providing the developers with turnkey solutions for their most common needs can be a good investment.

This includes (but not limited to) logging, metrics, alerts, deployment and a runtime environment.

Within each of these aspects, we leverage open source projects best suited for our needs and provide them with usable abstractions, sane defaults and the required security hardening.


GitOps is a way of implementing Continuous Deployment for cloud native applications. It focuses on a developer-centric experience when operating infrastructure, by using tools developers are already familiar with, including Git and Continuous Deployment tools.
