Platform.sh: combining Cloud hosting and continuous deployment for web applications
Today, companies must ensure time-to-market without interrupting service. Therefore, they must look for reliable partners able to meet these needs.Platform.sh is a service that allows for hosting and “continuous deployment” of applications relying on several infrastructure suppliers (Amazon, Azure, Orange, etc.) giving users of any size the same speed and reliability as Internet giants.
This service combines highly-available Cloud hosting with an agile workflow. It’s a new-generation Platform-as-a-Service that speeds up creation on the fly, in less than a minute, of development environments, tests, and production, in an automated way; a concept that has already won over more than 2,000 businesses worldwide.For SQLI, this solution is perfect since it will help make web application development easier, more reliable, and faster.
A strategic partnership
Signed on Thursday 22 September, the partnership between SQLI and Platform.sh is a winning combination of technology. SQLI, leader in the e-commerce sector, will bring flexible, integrated solutions. While this service can currently deploy cross-platform solutions (Drupal, Symfony, Magento, Ruby), Platform.sh will benefit from SQLI’s expertise to expand its offer to other technologies.
“This partnership allows us to develop our brand image. SQLI is a major digital player recognised internationally; this collaboration will give our product additional visibility and will be supported by a very competent team. Furthermore, we share the same values as SQLI and have a shared ambition and desire to conquer new markets together,” states Frédéric Plais, Managing Director of Platform.sh.
Thanks to this partnership, SQLI can rely on unequalled operational expertise and benefit from significant productivity gains in its projects’ development times.
“We are happy with this new collaboration with Platform.sh that will help reinforce our agility and flexibility to accelerate and succeed in our clients’ digital transformation. Cloud hosting also brings a strategic advantage in cost management. Platform.sh offers a high-added-value turnkey solution that relies on the most reputable IaaS providers. This approach adds to SQLI’s offering by meeting the needs of high availability, safety, and digital project scalability, while being optimised for technical solutions at the heart of our business," concludes Didier Fauque, Managing Director of SQLI.
