Pantheon Now Serving Over 1 Billion Web Hits a Month
SAN FRANCISCO --(Business Wire)--
Today Pantheon, the all-in-one Drupal platform, announced that the
company is now serving over a billion Web hits a month. Since the
company's worldwide launch nine months ago, thousands of Web development
firms, corporations and media companies have chosen Pantheon to run
their websites in the cloud-freeing them from the expense of hardware
and servers. With Pantheon, companies for the first time can bring the
simplicity and success of the SaaS (News - Alert) model used in CRM, marketing and
productivity apps for the critical function of building, launching and
running Drupal websites.
Based on a Web-scale infrastructure, Pantheon is able to serve
everything as small as a personal website or as high-traffic as the most
viewed online publications in the world. This approach-proven in the
CRM, marketing and productivity app spaces-is unique in the enterprise
Web content management system (CMS) market, which until now has
historically lacked the innovation enjoyed in these other areas.
"We created Pantheon to liberate developers and companies from having to
buy, run and manage servers in order to bring their ideas to the Web,"
said Zack Rosen, CEO of Pantheon. "It's been rewarding to see the number
and diversity of companies that share that vision and are now using
Pantheon, helping us reach this important milestone just a few months
after our launch."
New Dashboard Now Available
Pantheon is also announcing the immediate availability of the new Apollo
Dashbord, which makes the power of the CMS cloud available with just a
browser. Using the dashboard, developers and administrators can deploy
sites, create staging and testing environments, and manage code
deployments, all from a simple user interface. Traditionally, each of
these tasks could take weeks of work. Now they are available for
companies with just one click.
"Before switching to Pantheon, our developers spent too many resources
on operational things like site performance, server management, edge
infrastructure and all the other pieces necessary to run a modern
website," said Matt Johnson, managing partner and co-founder, Alley
Interactive. "Pantheon manages all of this for us in the cloud, ensuring
that our clients get the best experience from their sites, and we don't
have to worry about running servers and carrying pagers."
Pantheon is based on the open-source CMS, Drupal, which is backed by a
global community of over 900,000 users and more than 22,000 developers.
Over 1.5 million websites run on Drupal, including some of the best
known and most trafficked destinations on the Web.
Pantheon is available now at http://getpantheon.com.
Free plans are available, with paid plans starting at $25 per month. For
enterprise plans, please contact Pantheon at 1-855-927-9387.
Pantheon is the all-in-one Drupal platform that gives developers
everything they need to build, launch and run websites at the speed of
light for organizations as small as a local radio station or as vast as
the United States government.
Pantheon's team frees developers from the drudge work of system
administration and alleviates the stress of worrying about uptime.
Pantheon handles the servers so developers focus on success.
