Kentico Portal, a CMS for the Cloud

Cloud computing has been gaining momentum for the last few years, and has recently become required ingredient in every robust enterprise IT environment. Leading CMS vendor, and Nubifer partner, Kentico Software, took a step forward recently when they announced that their CMS Portals are now supported by the leading Cloud platforms. This means that you can now decide to deploy Kentico either on premise in your own IT landscape, using a public Cloud platform (such as Amazon or Windows Azure), or leveraging a hybrid model (with a database behind a firewall and a front end in the cloud).

Kentico Software sees the cloud computing as an important step for their customers. The recent releases of Kentico CMS “…removes barriers for our customers who are looking at their enterprise cloud computing strategy. Regardless of whether it’s on-premise or in the cloud, Kentico CMS is ready,” says Kentico Software CEO, Petr Palas.
Based on the influence of cloud, mobile devices and social media, the online needs of users and customers have changed significantly in recent years. The days of simple brochure-esque websites targeting traditional browser devices with one-way communication are quickly coming to an end. The web has evolved to become much more sophisticated medium. A business website is no longer a destination; rather, it is a central nexus for commercial engagement.Nubifer realizes that a business site today needs to cover the gamut – it needs to be visually appealing, it needs to have an intuitive information architecture, it needs to deliver dynamic, rich, compelling content, it needs to have mechanisms for visitor interaction, it needs to be optimized for speed and responsiveness, it needs to be highly scalable and it needs to deliver an excellent experience to traditional browser devices like desktops and laptops.
Kentico identified that in order to deal with the huge demand for web content from the social and mobile Internet, business websites need to be built with scalability at the forefront of the engineer’s minds. This is where the Cloud and Kentico CMS meet; elastic infrastructure which can be optimized to adapt to the growing needs of your business. Whether this is Infrastructure-as-a-Service ( IaaS ), or Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS), Kentico CMS provides turn-key solutions to the various options available which will allow your organization’s web properties to scale efficiently and economically.Kentico’s cloud optimized CMS platform enables organizations to deploy their portal in minutes and easily create a fully-configured, fault-tolerant and load-balanced cluster. Kentico’s cloud-ready portal deployments automatically scale to meet the needs’ of customers, which can vary widely depending on the number of projects, the number of people working on each project and users’ geographic locations.
By automatically and dynamically growing and reducing the number of servers on the cloud, those leveraging a Kentico CMS solution can reduce costs, only paying for the system usage as needed, while maintaining optimum system performance.”Kentico Software shares our vision of driving the expansion and delivery of new capabilities in the cloud,” said Chad Collins, Nubifer CEO. “The Kentico CMS brings automation, increased IT control and visibility to users, who understand the advantages of creating and deploying scalable portal solutions in the cloud.”
