Open Source

We Open Source

Here at Stark & Wayne, Open Source is in our DNS. From day one, we've believed in the power and utility of the open source model of collaborative software development. We use open source. We write open source. We evangelize open source.

Tweed Data Services

Tweed is an on-demand service broker that targets both Kubernetes and BOSH for deploying mission-critical data services, in both shared configurations (running as containers on a Kubernetes cluster) and dedicated configurations (running as virtual machines in a cloud IaaS of your choice).

SHIELD Data Protection

You've got data, and that data needs protecting. SHIELD is an Open Source data protection system that helps you to run scheduled, unattended data backup tasks in a secure fashion. Archives are encrypted at rest and in flight, and the restore process is designed to be as easy and stress-free as possible.


If you've got a lot of platforms to deploy, across a lot of different cloud providers and data center configurations, Genesis is the tool for you.

With Genesis, we have packaged up our deployment best practies into bundles of code and configuration called Genesis Kits, and make them available to you. Couple that with a flexible deployment pipeline atop Concourse, and you've got the makings of a solid, enterprise-grade platform.


BOSH is a virtual macine orchestrator that supports all the major public cloud Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) vendors, including Amazon AWS, Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud, and VMware vSphere.

We use it to deploy things like Kubernetes and Cloud Foundry, via community-maintained BOSH releases to the cloud. We love BOSH so much we wrote a book about owning and operating it, the Ultimate Guide to BOSH!


Concourse is a flexible and powerful continuous integration and continuous delivery workflow engine, built on top of containers, that makes it easy to build pipelines to cater to your every automation need.

We didn't build Concourse, but we do use it heavily. We even wrote the book on it:
