Pantheon Introduces Professional Website Platform for WordPress, the Internet’s Most Popular Content Management System

Pantheon [www.getpantheon.com], 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 for 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.

As Marc Andreessen says software is eating the world. Everything is rapidly moving toward being software-defined – from our phones and cars through our washing machines to the datacenter. However, there are larger challenges when implementing software defined on a larger scale - when building software defined infrastructure. In his session at 16th Cloud Expo, Boyan Ivanov, CEO of StorPool, provided some practical insights on what, how and why when implementing "software-defined" in the datacenter.
ChatOps is an emerging topic that has led to the wide availability of integrations between group chat and various other tools/platforms. Currently, HipChat is an extremely powerful collaboration platform due to the various ChatOps integrations that are available. However, DevOps automation can involve orchestration and complex workflows. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 20th Cloud Expo, Himanshu Chhetri, CTO at Addteq, will cover practical examples and use cases such as self-provisioning infrastructure/applications, self-remediation workflows, integrating monitoring and complimenting integrations between Atlassian tools and other top tools in the industry.
"Storpool does only block-level storage so we do one thing extremely well. The growth in data is what drives the move to software-defined technologies in general and software-defined storage," explained Boyan Ivanov, CEO and co-founder at StorPool, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 16th Cloud Expo, held June 9-11, 2015, at the Javits Center in New York City.
Is advanced scheduling in Kubernetes achievable?Yes, however, how do you properly accommodate every real-life scenario that a Kubernetes user might encounter? How do you leverage advanced scheduling techniques to shape and describe each scenario in easy-to-use rules and configurations? In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 21st Cloud Expo, Oleg Chunikhin, CTO at Kublr, answered these questions and demonstrated techniques for implementing advanced scheduling. For example, using spot instances and cost-effective resources on AWS, coupled with the ability to deliver a minimum set of functionalities that cover the majority of needs – without configuration complexity.
A strange thing is happening along the way to the Internet of Things, namely far too many devices to work with and manage. It has become clear that we'll need much higher efficiency user experiences that can allow us to more easily and scalably work with the thousands of devices that will soon be in each of our lives. Enter the conversational interface revolution, combining bots we can literally talk with, gesture to, and even direct with our thoughts, with embedded artificial intelligence, which can process our conversational commands and orchestrate the outcomes we request across our personal and professional realm of connected devices.
