Alfresco launches Alfresco Cloud

Alfresco Software, a commercial, open source software company, is broadening its cloud deployment choice with the introduction of Alfresco Cloud, which brings the Alfresco Digital Business Platform to enterprises in a fully managed environment.

Alfresco PaaS is initially available in preview mode with general availability in early 2020.

According to the company, Alfresco’s products have always been built for the cloud but now the company will provide them as a managed service.

 Alfresco Cloud comprises:

  • A number of on-demand services including content as a service, process as a service, governance as a service, and AI as a service
  • A content app for organizations to use immediately with minimal configuration for enterprise content management consumed as a service
  • A cloud-based, development platform enabling organizations to build and run their process and content intensive apps in a fully managed and hosted environment

These cloud services are aimed at enabling enterprises to build process and content intensive apps without the cost and complexity of deploying, managing, and updating the platform themselves. It is a combination of infrastructure, operational capabilities, security monitoring and governance, and the industry leading enterprise content and business process management solutions.

Alfresco Cloud will allow enterprises to focus on delivering true business value, while leaving the upgrade, maintenance, and performance tuning to Alfresco with the goal of faster time to value and reduced costs when compared to running their infrastructure on premises.  

The new offering will address the needs of SMBs and large enterprises that want to upgrade process- and content-intensive applications but don’t want the added cost or complexity of deploying, managing, or updating apps themselves.  

"We wanted to bring the power of the Digital Business Platform to enterprises that want to simplify the development and deployment of their own apps," said  Bernadette Nixon, CEO, Alfresco. "In a nutshell, we removed the IT infrastructure headache. With our managed PaaS, enterprises can access the full power of the Alfresco Digital Business Platform, gain total independence from the underlying infrastructure, and run their apps anywhere."

Alfresco’s Digital Business Platform as a Service, which is hosted in Amazon Web Services, offers a high-availability architecture that is fully redundant and includes state-of-the-art security features.  It provides all the capabilities of the Alfresco Digital Business Platform via the cloud, provides customers access to the latest innovations, and offers the latest version of the platform comprising all updates, patches, and third-party services.
