Today the TYPO3 Association and Platform.sh, the continuous delivery cloud hosting company, announce that TYPO3 is available to test on Platform.sh from October 26 onwards giving all TYPO3 users full access to Platform.sh’s revolutionary cloud-hosting capabilities. Full details of the Tech Preview will be provided in sessions at this year’s T3CON in Munich, 26-27 October.

Mathias Schreiber, CEO of TYPO3 GmbH said: “We’ve followed developments in Cloud hosting and PaaS solutions closely, and Platform.sh immediately impressed us with its simplicity, flexibility and dedication to the developer’s needs.”

Olivier Dobberkau, President of the TYPO3 Association added: “Aside from its intrinsic technical advantages, Platform.sh also fits the bill in delivering the mission critical cloud hosting that TYPO3’s Enterprise user base is looking for. By partnering with Microsoft for hosting in international Azure datacenters and Microsoft Cloud Germany,
Platform.sh can offer sovereign, compliant and secure production hosting to TYPO3 users worldwide”.

Andrew Melck, Regional Manager DACH at Platform.sh said: “TYPO3 is the dominant Open Source CMS in Germany and much of central Europe, so we’re very excited to be working together with the team to accelerate cloud adoption among TYPO3’s massive user base.”

Platform.sh brings a range of benefits to TYPO3 users:
  • Complete build and deployment management for Composer-based applications
  • Full management of key services such as MariaDB, PostgreSQL, MongoDB, Redis, Solr, ElasticSearch
  • Eliminates DevOps overhead by providing a complete copy of the application for every Git branch
  • Flexible deployment targets around the world including the Azure sovereign German cloud
  • Strong partners with Symfony and Blackfire.io
  • Application can scale from minimally resourced development environments to deployments with hundreds of CPUs and GB of RAM.
Platform.sh has established itself as the modern, preferred solution for other Composer-based open source systems such as Drupal, Magento, EZ Platform, Sulu, and Symfony. The collaboration with TYPO3 is a further move towards standardization in best practices around modern orchestration and deployment.

On its way to the release of the next full version of TYPO3, the core team has examined current best practices and identified key cloud functionalities. The tech preview offers an early view of the new features, ahead of the release of TYPO3 8 LTS in April 2017.
