In The Cloud
Hippo CMS’s system architecture is ready for deployment in the cloud. You can use a popular service like Amazon EC2, or you can choose the BloomReach Cloud platform for a cloud-based option that is optimized to run Hippo CMS.
BloomReach Cloud offers the best of both worlds. You get full control over deploying your Hippo-based projects through an easy-to-use web-based UI. Hippo takes care of all infrastructure tasks such as hardware and software updates, system security, network availability, automated backup and disaster recovery.
All integration points provided by Hippo CMS are supported by BloomReach Cloud at the infrastructure level. A separate acceptance (staging) environment is standard, with a test environment as an extra option.
Hippo CMS uses a layered virtualized architecture, containing a dedicated application layer for each BloomReach Cloud environment, on top of a shared base architecture consisting of a load balancer, web proxy and database layers. Each virtual machine in each layer has its own host-based firewall rules, making it very secure.
BloomReach Cloud makes use of our preferred software stack consisting of Oracle JVM, Debian, Tomcat, MySQL and Elasticsearch.
