What is Ægir?

Ægir’s features include:

Deploy Web Applications

Ægir makes it easy to install, upgrade, and backup an entire network of Drupal sites.

Full Life-cycle Management

From deployment, installation and configuration through final archiving, full rollback capabilitites ensure reliability for rich, stateful applications.

Manage Custom Code

Use Git to ship configuration across development, staging and production environments, or deploy custom code across entire platforms.

Fully extensible

Ægir is built on Drupal and Drush, and supports many add-ons through contributed extensions.

Cloud Ready

Ægir allows you to deploy and manage many sites, and can scale across multiple server clusters.

Helpful Community

Aegir is built by a community of system administrators and developers who share Drupal deployment tools, strategies and best practices, instead of continuing to write our own little shell scripts.

Support Ægir

Donate to the Ægir project

Donations, big or small, are always appreciated!

They help to cover the costs to:

  • Operate the infrastructure for the project (community site, mailing lists, and CI servers, etc.),
  • Host user meetups and developer summits,
  • Promote the project at technology conferences, and
  • Support ongoing development.

If you’re looking for paid support or consulting, because Ægir is a critical component of your infrastructure, contact the Ægir Coop or any of the other supporting organizations. These companies can also help with custom development, if you’re interested in extending Ægir with new functionality.

Financial support can greatly accelerate our development efforts. Help us work on one of these goals:

  • Future maintenance releases of our stable version,
  • Development of future versions of Ægir, and
  • Extending Ægir with new features.

You can help to make these happen!

Our passion to produce a great product, drives us to keep working on Ægir. We maintain and develop it mostly because we use it ourselves.

However, we do a lot of work to help the community, such as supporting older versions and making upgrade paths user-friendly. Core team members don’t generally need these, so donations validate more time being spent on them.
