Over the past decade, deploying web apps has become increasingly easier with the introduction of commercial offerings like Heroku, Fly.io, and Render. However, these services come at a premium, and if you want to run your web app on your own hardware or have a clear migration path in the future, you need to carefully consider how locked in you get to these commercial platforms. This is where MRSK comes in.

MRSK seeks to bring the ease of deploying web apps pioneered by commercial offerings to deploying web apps anywhere, whether that’s on low-cost cloud options without the managed-service markup or your own colocated bare metal. With MRSK, all you need to do is feed the config file a list of IP addresses with vanilla Ubuntu servers that have seen no prep beyond an added SSH key, and you’ll be up and running in minutes.

This approach gives you enormous portability. You can have your web app deployed on several clouds with ease or buy the baseline with your hardware and then deploy to a cloud before a big seasonal spike to get more capacity. When you’re not locked into a single provider from a tooling perspective, there are a lot of compelling options available.

MRSK is meant to compress the complexity of going to production using open source tooling that isn’t tied to any commercial offering. While it may not eliminate all complexity, it’s a great option for those who have a basic understanding of Linux or Docker and are ready to take control of their web app deployment.

With MRSK, you’ll have the freedom to deploy your web apps anywhere you choose, without being tied to any commercial platform. So why not give it a try and see what MRSK can do for you?
