Platform.sh, an end-to-end web platform for agile teams, has expanded its services to the West US 2 data center region of public cloud platform Microsoft Azure. The expansion, in which the US-West region joins the Platform.sh US-East and Canada regions in North America, is part of the Platform.sh’s long-term collaboration with Microsoft.
Platform.sh is managed hosting platform for agile teams. It enables organizations to build, evolve, and scale their website fleet – with zero infrastructure management investment. Platform.sh includes application hosting, CI/CD, automated updates, global 24×7 support, and much more.
Expansion to the Azure West US 2 data center would help global website fleet customers put their websites closer to their audiences. It would also enable Platform.sh university and enterprise customers throughout the west to deliver the best experience possible to their users. Now, more enterprises will be able to use Platform.sh to “easily” spin up development instances and run production workloads for website fleets on top of Azure.
“Microsoft Azure is known for being a very open and flexible cloud computing platform,” said Fred Plais, co-founder and CEO of Platform.sh. “Platform.sh shares that same commitment to freedom, supporting an array of languages and frameworks that enable enterprises to keep their options open, flexible, and future-proof.”
Platform.sh provisions environments on Microsoft Azure on demand and at any scale. The capabilities provided by Platform.sh would help organizations deliver complex infrastructure deployments without compromising time to market. They can also accelerate growth by automating the setup of environments, while providing visibility into and control over usage.
“Microsoft’s commitment to be an open developer platform with Microsoft Azure and working with partners like Platform.sh make it easier and faster for organizations around the world to build and maintain modern websites and applications,” said John Nisi, General Manager, US Cloud, Microsoft. “By expanding to Azure US-West, and leveraging the broadest data center region footprint of all cloud providers, Platform.sh is working to help enterprises shrink the challenges of managing their website fleets even as their number of websites and applications grows to keep up with customer needs.”
