Operational maturity for Django

Python development involves a lot of moving parts. From building, managing, and maintaining complex internal platforms, to connecting tools and people to the right resources, to reliably securing applications. This makes enforcing compliance and environment provisioning moving targets. Preventing your teams from focusing on your APIs and spending a lot more time on things they’d rather not. With our Django cloud platform, these are things of the past.

Manage the complexity with standardization

and spend more time on your Django enterprise

Zero-config deployments and full backups

It all starts with the Platform.sh workflow. Define builds, deploys, and access explicitly in YAML with support for Pip, Pipenv, and Poetry. Define Celery workers and message queues without needing to learn how to provision RabbitMQ, PostgreSQL, Elasticsearch, or any other service.When you backup your site, we make a full copy of everything. Your developers tell us what they want, we handle the rest.

See how it works

Infrastructure management included

Python is a dependency of your application, but time spent upgrading security patches and version updates is time away from developing with Django. Python is provisioned in a single line, packaged with your unique committed build, with security patches applied automatically in the background.

See Python on Platform.sh
MySQL, Redis, Vault and more

MySQL, Redis, and more

Add 15+ services with a line of YAML, and connect your business logic securely to the environment’s internal network. Built-in Redis, Elasticsearch, and Solr support for every account. Integrated Blackfire.io and managed CDN support accelerate your Django APIs, too. Deliver on AWS, Google Cloud, Azure, and more with our Django platform.

Environments on-demand

Experiment in isolation and with confidence for every change. Since everything is built on Git, builds are reused and data is cloned automatically. With true byte-to-byte replicas of production, you can be sure that what you're testing in development and staging is exactly what you'll get behaviorally in production.

Environments & inheritance

Move fast and experiment freely

with GitOps built in, and the tools you already use

Faster Django development, built for microservices

Test new features, custom services, and frontends in isolation - all from the same Django platform. With Git, simply open a pull request or create a branch, and get true staging environments on-demand. Dev-Stage-Prod is no longer a necessary limitation of your tooling, allowing for parallel workflows for each pipeline of work without your teams colliding. Integrate the rest of your CI pipeline and move fast without breaking things.

See how it works


Our main API is Git. You can do most operations by simply pushing code or a config file. Then, watch your cluster configure itself automatically.


Command line and local

Manage your projects directly from within your terminal. Anything you can do in the Platform.sh UI, you can do in your terminal with our CLI. Work locally with pulled production data for every modification.

Software code

Pip, Poetry, and Pipenv

Platform.sh provides highly customizable build-deploy configuration, including how you handle dependencies. Define your requirements how you need them and let our builds take care of the rest.

Develop a continuous observability strategy

because you can’t optimize what you can’t measure

Optimize infrastructure and app performance with a Continuous Observability Strategy

With environments on-demand, you can spend less time orchestrating, and more time on development. Not just developing new features, but also monitoring and investigating the performance of your infrastructure and applications, so that you can optimize how you use resources. Looking to dive deeper into Django? Get alerts when resources run low and investigate bottlenecks in isolation. With a clearer picture, you can choose which resources are needed and when.

Check out the Observability Suite
Single Eye


Get a real-time view of your resource usage with infrastructure metrics. Track CPU, memory, and disk usage over all your containers. Use Blackfire.io’s application performance monitoring to receive alerts that help you understand where and when performance issues occur in your Django apps.

See the demo
Putting pieces together


Once you’ve identified a problem, branch a production replica into a new environment, then with the Blackfire profiler investigate performance bottlenecks. Organize performance sprints around implementing recommendations and reducing resource usage across every transaction in your business logic.

Deep-dive into your code


For every performance improvement, a test can be written tailored for even your most custom functions and service calls. Expand your CI pipeline to account for a performance budget, and eliminate the reintroduction of performance regressions.

Test performance as a feature

Scale responsibly

in every direction the future takes your organization

What will you need in five years? Ten?

Multi-cloud, dedicated infrastructure, increased storage, memory, environments, and users—everything your organization might need—all from one platform. Looking to explore microservices and multiple APIs? How about Vue.js and React frontends? Platform.sh provides managed services and multi-app support to build out your enterprise. Completely standardize all your applications and regain control over access, common variables, updates, and compliance all while only using the resources you really need.

What is FleetOps?


The Platform.sh API lets you manage and organize all your projects within organizations, whether they share a common upstream codebase or if they’re made from distinctly different technologies. Optimize delivery, enforce compliance, respond to security releases, and keep every project in sync with FleetOps and Source Operations.

What is FleetOps?
Computer with application


Unplanned traffic surges can put your site under stress. With our Enterprise Dedicated plans, anytime your site begins to experience errors due to increased resource consumption, our orchestration system will automatically double the resources of your production environment in minutes, providing consistent auto-scaling performance.

Greener hosting for your Django enterprise

Platform.sh provides organizations with a unified platform for advanced observability, and optimization tooling that enable you to measure and reduce environmental impact. Our state-of-the-art container orchestration lets us achieve unparalleled levels of density, while guaranteeing resources to production and development environments.

Reduce Django's footprint

Enterprise-grade Django

From development to delivery

Reliability, security, scaling

Django isn’t just Django. It’s microservices, frontends, integrations, and so much more that keeps your products afloat. But all that time managing an internal platform could be better spent on new features, APIs, or better yet, on optimizing your application and better controlling the resources you actually need. That’s Platform.sh: Operational maturity in a box. Taking your organization away from reinventing the wheel so you can focus on experimentation and optimization.

Accessing services from Django

Keeping applications secure means isolation and environment-independence on Platform.sh. Credentials via environment variables is just the way to go. Take a look at how to connect to Solr, Redis, MySQL, and more from your Django apps.


Our Platform.sh environment easily and automatically scales out to meet the demands of the incoming web traffic, and it’s triple-redundant to protect us against hardware failures.
