The Many Options for Hosting a Plone Site
Over the last year there has been a lot of work on hosting tools in the Plone community. Here at Jazkarta, most of our client’s sites are hosted using Amazon Web Services and OpsWorks because this platform’s robust tool set and high level of flexibility is a good fit for sites like The Mountaineers and KCRW. But there are many other options, especially for smaller sites.
To provide a forum to discuss all the recent activity, I hosted a panel discussion on Plone hosting at the 2014 Plone Conference. We covered Ansible, OpsWorks, Nix, Docker, OpenVZ, Heroku, and some PaaS providers. The slides from the session provide lots of information about all these options, including links, pros and cons.
