Platform.sh delivers more than Pantheon

Don’t let your ability to innovate with the latest tools and frameworks be limited by your infrastructure provider. With Platform.sh we offer a powerful Pantheon alternative with flexible workflows (what works with git, works with us), your choice of cloud provider, and powerful CI/CD capabilities included as standard. All at transparent and predictable pricing.

Key differentiators

  • Multi technology

    With Platform.sh, you are not only limited to Drupal and Wordpress. Exploring headless scenarios? Want to deploy a microservice architecture? Have a Java middleware? You can deploy it all on Platform.sh following the same workflow.

  • Multi cloud

    For every project you can choose your region based on your preference. We trust you to make the best choice for your project when it comes to region, IaaS provider, and energy grid carbon intensity.

  • We don't like surprises

    Platform.sh does not charge per pageview. It doesn’t matter whether you run 250,000 or 500,000 pageviews per month on the same plan, the price will stay the same. That means no surprises at the end of the month.

  • 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. From composer dependencies to compilation.

Why choose Platform.sh over Pantheon?

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.

Security

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

Acquia 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.
