Orchestration Platform for Apps at Viasat: Project VonBraun

I am a Software Engineering Intern working in Viasat’s Seattle office. My team’s internship project, VonBraun, is a next-generation orchestration platform for 12-factor apps at Viasat, to meet the need for a simple platform to run general-purpose (e.g. web) apps with little operational overload. It is basically a Heroku-style platform for internal use at Viasat. We aim to dramatically increase the speed at which certain kinds of apps can be developed and deployed, such as:

  • Web management dashboards for various systems
  • Databus loopbacks/aggregators
  • Web apps that fall into the 12-factor app idealism
