SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--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.
Pantheon powers the world’s professional websites. Our multi-tenant, container-based cloud platform enables businesses to run mission-critical Drupal & WordPress websites—not manage them. Developers, Marketers and IT can instantly scale in response to unplanned traffic spikes, without upgrading VMs or clusters. Large enterprises use Pantheon, including Intel, Cisco, Arizona State University, and the United Nations.
Headquartered in San Francisco, Pantheon is privately held and backed by Foundry Group, Baseline Ventures, First Round Capital, and Floodgate Fund. Pantheon is a Heavybit company.
