Pantheon Introduces Professional Website Platform for WordPress, the Internet's Most Popular Content Management System
SAN FRANCISCO --(Business Wire)--
the cloud website platform of choice for professional developers,
designers, and marketers, today announced the immediate availability of
WordPress on Pantheon, The Professional Website Platform.
Pantheon is the first website platform with all the tools professional
developers need to build best-practice sites-like version control,
dev/test environments, team management, backups, and workflow. WordPress
is the world's most popular content management technology, powering more
than 19 percent of all web sites on the Internet. Over 76 million
WordPress sites have been deployed globally.
Pantheon is the only multi-tenant website platform available for
WordPress and Drupal. Based on a highly efficient and flexible
container-based infrastructure, Pantheon delivers smooth scaling by
using software, not servers, to deploy, stage, and run websites. Users
can instantly respond and scale to unplanned traffic spikes and demand.
"Because of its simplicity, WordPress has become the de-facto Internet
publishing tool for businesses with straightforward design requirements"
said Zack Rosen, CEO and co-founder of Pantheon. "But WordPress
developers face the same tricky website DevOps challenges as Drupal
developers. Pantheon turns tasks like version control, setting up
development environments, workflow, team management, and high
performance scaling into one-click operations. This technology already
powers 55,000+ Drupal sites, some doing more than 100M daily page-views.
With Pantheon, WordPress professionals can stay focused on high-value
work and launch their websites faster."
Pantheon delivers the best of all worlds
Traditional hosting is under-featured, and incredibly time and labor
intensive for professional websites. Developers and businesses wait to
provision resources to deploy websites. They wait fr infrastructure
configurations. They wait to upgrade VMs and server clusters. Too much
traffic can overwhelm a traditional hosting infrastructure, and
professional development features like version control and workflow
create additional work.
Pantheon eliminates these burdens with a multi-tenant, container-based
infrastructure. Developers and designers can introduce new features and
deploy in a few clicks. Every website gets its own, dedicated
development, staging, and live environments-all with identical
configurations-and can smoothly scale from a few hundred to hundreds of
millions of pageviews.
Pantheon offers its professional website platform for both WordPress and
Drupal, the two leading open-source technologies for business websites.
