Hi Ruben,

we are working on something like that, but it is not ready for 
production environments yet. Some stability and performance improvements 
must be done. We have recently published an initial alpha version on 
GitHub (https://github.com/datalab-bcn). However it is basically 
intended for developer testing until it matures.

If you want/can test it we will be very happy to have some feedback and 
improve it.
