In this article, we will introduce you to our new WebPaaS offer to allow you to move to PaaS.
As defined by everyone, a PaaS (Platform-as-a-Service) is a model where a software layer is integrated with some hardware to run applications. It means also that you will focus on writing or running your code, as the hardware is managed by the PaaS provider, less costs, less hassles, more freedom, and more focus.
Last June, Platform.sh and OVHcloud launched a WebPaaS offering to help developers and businesses code, run and maintain their web applications or websites in the easiest way. This is new for OVHcloud, but it is based on solid foundations in web hosting.
WebPaaS powered by Platform.sh
OVHcloud is hosting more than 3 million websites, and it grows every day. That’s a lot of websites and gives us a solid experience on the web topic. As a company, we want to provide the best services to our customers, and we want to help them to grow and scale using the best tools available for their purpose.
To put it in a nutshell, our Web PaaS powered by Platform.sh enables companies to simplify the development, deployment and security of their websites and applications. It is a fully managed and customizable solution, and you can tailor it to your needs.
With its integrated CI / CD (Continuous Integration / Continuous Deployment) layer, this offer will free you from the DevOps constraint and will facilitate all your deployment tasks.
