Meet Velociraptor

Velociraptor is a Django- and Celery-powered web application for building and deploying software services. It is very opinionated about how this should be done, adhering (with one or two exceptions) to the Twelve Factor App methodology.

Velociraptor is language agnostic. It can deploy apps in Python, PHP, Ruby, Node.js, Java, Scala, Go, or any other language that runs on Linux.

Velociraptor supports zero downtime deployment for apps that include uptests.

The tools are getting so good these days that custom PaaS systems are springing up all over. If Velociraptor isn't to your liking, you might take a look at Gilliam, Tsuru, or openruko.
