Pluggable, Configurable, Extensible
Run multiple open source CMS with confidence:
DDEV-Local and DDEV-Live currently support Drupal 6/7/8, TYPO3 CMS, Backdrop CMS, WordPress, and Java applications.
Supports multiple deployment model:
Bare metal, public cloud, in-house, or hybrid.
Support for custom services and configurations:
Including Memcache, Redis, Varnish, Nginx, Apache, Solr, and more.
Burstable, Automatic, Dynamic Scaling
Horizontally scalable, distributed, high-availability file and database architecture works with public cloud providers.
Advanced caching internally and externally:
Caching layer configurable. Varnish, Memcache, Redis, Nginx php-fpm, and CDNs available.
Zero-down deployment, scaling, and infrastructure migration and clustered burst capabilities via Kubernetes.
Sub-second Page Loads Powered by Cloudflare:
Your applications on DDEV-Live benefit from Cloudflare CDN services–load balancing, smart routing, and streaming–all assisting your online assets achieve maximum performance. DDEV-Live is compatible with other CDNs.
Managed HTTPS via Let’s Encrypt.
Site monitoring via Prometheus:
For proactive and reactive capacity planning, incidents, and alerts.
Production grade container orchestration by Kubernetes:
Massively scalable industry standard open-source system for automating deployment, scaling, and management of containerized applications. Designed on the same principles that allow Google and others to run billions of containers a week.
Portable and deployment agnostic:
Container-based architecture allows you to deploy your application with its exact environment and configuration anywhere. Move your workloads as needed: between on-premises, public cloud, or hybrid infrastructure.
Restarts failed containers, replaces and reschedules containers when nodes die, kills containers that don’t respond to user-defined health checks, doesn’t advertise containers to clients until they are ready to serve.
Applications automatically scale across containers based on parameters we set like CPU usage, traffic, or other factors.
Simple service discovery and load balancing:
Kubernetes gives containers their own internal IP addresses and a single DNS name for a set of containers, and can load-balance across them.
Automated rollouts and rollbacks:
Changes to your application or its configuration are rolled out progressively, while monitoring application health. Automated rollbacks to a previous version or snapshot if something goes wrong.
Compliance & Data Sovereignty
Data privacy regulations on public clouds respected in cooperation with our sovereign cloud providers.
Fully compatible with hosting on your own premises and your in-house infrastructure. You can have complete control over your data and meet the strictest compliance and data sovereignty requirements.
DRUD maintains all DDEV infrastructure following industry best practices and undertaking relevant measures for legal and regulatory compliance.
Infrastructure and software automatically scanned for configuration and patching compliance.
Operating systems, middleware, and software libraries receive timely security patches.
