Operational maturity for Django
Django development often involves building, managing, and maintaining complex internal platforms, connecting tools and people, and reliably delivering secure applications. This can make enforcing compliance, and baking in the relationship between Git and builds, into moving targets, which could keep your team from focusing on your APIs. Platform.sh provides the packaging, provisioning, and deploying logic from the start—just integrate, iterate, and optimize from there.Try for free
Manage the complexity with standardization
and spend more of your time focusing on Django
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, 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.Check out built-in services
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 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.
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
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
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
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?
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.See how auto-scaling works
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
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.See how it works
Global support and deployment
You can deploy your Django applications on Amazon Web Services, Google Cloud, OVHCloud, Microsoft Azure, and Orange Cloud, worldwide.View our providers
Critical performance and high availability
Everything runs on high-IOPs SSDs, which, when combined with our powerful integrated caching (both at the HTTP layer and the database layer), makes Platform.sh a high-performing Django platform.Reliability and security

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.
Starters and demos
There’s no one way to deploy Python, and your Django apps likely depend on FastAPI, Flask, or some other service to fill out your API. Check out our library of templates to see how the world of Python works on Platform.sh.
PaaS: a better alternative to Kubernetes
Platform.sh isn’t about getting rid of your DevOps platform team. But the amount of time your organization spends maintaining your internal platform. Take a look at how standardizing your platform with Platform.sh can move your thinking away from building orchestration, and towards optimizing it.
“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.”
