About Platform.sh

Platform.sh is a continuous deployment cloud hosting solution that can scale applications from the smallest project to ones handling millions of visitors. It is ideal for agile software teams because of its unique feature: it can replicate a live production cluster in seconds and create byte-level clones of throwaway dev and staging environments, which makes testing and validation up to 7 times faster, that’s weeks to days, and in some cases days to hours. Platform.sh can provide 99.99% SLAs thanks to their 24/7 follow-the-sun support combined with a unique, triple-redundant architecture that’s based on a high-density grid of Linux micro-containers. Headquartered in Paris, France, with employees across five continents, the company serves thousands of clients worldwide, including Vivienne Westwood, The Canadian Football League, The British Council, Flixbus, and El Universo.
