12 Reasons You Should Migrate to dotCMS Cloud

Stefan Schinkel

Would your technology team prefer to focus on building innovative apps and supporting the business instead of managing infrastructure? Would you like to reduce your digital platform's total cost of ownership significantly?  If the answer to those questions is yes, read on...

  1. System Administration  | Getting rid of system administration activities can save up to 1-2 FTEs depending on the size of your dotCMS infrastructure. That easily saves you $200,000 – $300,000 per year. 

  2. Annual CMS Upgrades | Included in any dotCMS Cloud subscription is the annual core CMS upgrade (LTS to LTS). And there's no upcharge. Other managed hosting providers can charge thousands of dollars. 

  3. Performance Support  |  Performance Support (24/7 Critical care) is included for HA production/live environments on dotCMS, whereas 3rd-party managed hosting providers charge anywhere between $25,000 - $50,000 per year. With dotCMS Cloud, you save on additional support costs.

  4. Cloud Self-Services  | As mentioned in a previous Product Update webinar, dotCMS is working on a Cloud Control app that enables several self-service scenarios, including but not limited to ad-hoc back-ups & restores, spinning up new environments, and many more.

  5. SOC2 (Type II) & ISO-27001  | dotCMS is SOC2 (Type II) and ISO-27001 certified for dotCMS Cloud and the process and controls supporting the product and our customers. 

  6. Security-first | Our customers run business-critical applications and want to rely on our platform's security provisions & controls. dotCMS Cloud comes with a Web Application Firewall (WAF). dotCMS is also a CVE Naming Authority.

  7. Power Purchase Agreement  | dotCMS procures many AWS cloud products and has significantly better purchasing power than individual enterprises or 3rd parties offering managed hosting. This allows us to offer a competitive product that makes sense for everyone involved. 

  8. Tiered Cloud resources  | At dotCMS, we don’t believe in one-size-fits-all. Our tiered cloud offering gives you the flexibility for the different environments you need to support your business-critical applications, including auto-scaling your production environment for peak traffic.

  9. High-Performance Delivery | dotCMS is a highly scalable product by design, and dotCMS Cloud includes a Content Delivery Network (CDN) to deliver great digital experiences when delivering rich media content. More on high-performance content delivery can be found here.

  10. Enterprise SPA Hosting  | dotCMS Cloud now offers  Enterprise SPA Hosting as part of our standard product offering. It allows development teams to increase their focus on innovation and building engaging applications to support business outcomes instead of managing the underlying infrastructure.

  11. dotCMS Cloud Anywhere | dotCMS offers the option to run on your AWS or GCP stack that you control, and dotCMS takes care of the maintenance and support. More details can be found here.

  12. Limitless Content Management | Migrating to dotCMS Cloud will still offer limitless content management. Complex content requirements cannot be restricted. More on our limitless content management can be found here.
