Monday, September 4th – Paris, France: for immediate release

A global city, a dynamic event, and a world-class hosting platform. Platform.sh is excited to be joining Orange Cloud for Business at Huawei Connect in Shanghai, from September 5th to 7th, offering demonstrations of its unique Continuous Deployment cloud hosting product.

The key to success in the online world is moving fast. Being able to respond in real time to changes in the market – as they happen and on the market’s timescale – is no longer a competitive advantage, it is the price of entry.

Using its unique Continuous Deployment technologies, Platform.sh enables Orange clients to deliver fast, improving development, deployment, testing and operations times by factors of up to 15x. And when you can deploy fast, you can deploy often.

Clients of Orange Business Services in Asia can take full advantage of this service, with the availability this month of Platform.sh by Orange, on Orange Flexible Engine.

The Platform.sh Technological Innovation

Through Platform.sh’s technological innovation, perfect copies of the production web hosting environment can be created automatically and with perfect consistency in less than 60 seconds. This Continuous Deployment model allows site builders to deliver an ongoing flow of change requests, one by one. It is not unusual for a Platform.sh project to have twenty pre-production environments running in parallel, delivering tens of new features into production each day.

The service is particularly suited to transactional web applications with heavy traffic such as major e-commerce sites. Indeed, it allows an organization to become highly reactive to market trends and optimizing revenue through fast updates to live, as well as seamless scaling with no application interruption to deal with traffic spikes. It also comes with an enterprise-level 24/7/365 support offering and 99.99% SLA guarantees.

The Partnership

Through Platform.sh’s partnership with Orange, Orange customers and their web agency partners benefit from this innovative offer.

“At Orange Cloud for Business, we strongly believe in the use of cloud services to improve productivity and help customers focus on their core business. Allowing developers to focus solely on the code without worrying about infrastructure management achieves this goal.” - Philippe Laplane, CEO Orange Cloud for Business.

“We are very excited to be presenting our product in the Chinese market. The combination of Platform.sh and Orange is especially powerful, combining Orange’s digital know-how with Platform.sh’s transformational hosting product.” - Frederic Plais, Platform.sh President and CEO.

Demonstrations of the Platform.sh solution will be available on the Orange Cloud for Business stand, from September 5th to 7th.
