Key differentiators

  • Automation is the default

    With Platform.sh, there's no need to spend countless hours training on how to work infrastructure. Instead, your team can focus on innovation and delivering new features.

  • Immediate environments

    Provision new projects and as many new environments as you need in minutes, not hours. Enjoy a fully integrated CI pipeline to build your site on the fly.

  • Infrastructure as code

    Manage infrastructure directly from your git repository. Want to add a new service for caching? It’s just a few lines of config away. No support tickets, no waiting time.

  • Multi cloud

    With every project, you can choose any major IaaS provider you prefer with no extra configuration, refactoring, or new pricing needed. Whether it's AWS, Azure, or Orange - we've got you covered.

Why choose Platform.sh over AWS?

Modern organizations need a better solution to meet customer demands. Platform.sh is the modern PaaS for organizations to build, run, and scale websites and web applications.

We take security and compliance seriously. For some countries and companies, that means hosting locally, too. Not only are we SOC 2 certified, we’re compliant with the CASL in Canada and with Germany’s BDSG and strict data locality and access rules.

Choice is good — that's why Platform.sh is multicloud

AWS works with only a single IaaS partner.

But not Platform.sh. We make it easy to use the IaaS provider that works best for your business, whether your choice is based on data locality for compliance, getting your application as close to your end users as possible, or simply preference.
