MODX Cloud is now in beta, and we’re super-excited about it. Saying it’s a highly optimized, yet intuitive, MODX site building platform would be an understatement. We built MODX Cloud to make it so simple and easy to develop, deploy and manage sites that it would actually be fun.

Creative Freedom in the Cloud

Before we went all-in on MODX as a software company, we bootstrapped the project and survived by building projects in MODX. But having to manage servers and perform “routine” maintenance—which frequently got delayed and, too often, went undone—was never fun.

If only back then we had MODX Cloud

Why MODX Cloud

MODX Cloud was born from a desire to see optimized MODX infrastructure available at a reasonable cost—and to make building MODX sites properly a simple, consistently repeatable process. It solves two key problems:

  • Managing Servers, Scaling and Security are hard, never-ending challenges, and
  • Hiring the right Geeks or relying on outsourcing for the above is equally as challenging and often expensive.

Early feedback from beta testers confirms we’ve built something special. In short, MODX Cloud gives you the freedom to focus virtually all of your time and energy solving communication challenges and building amazing online experiences for your customers.

MODX Cloud Snapshots

If you are a smaller shop or even a solo freelancer, MODX Cloud can help you win against larger competitors by giving you technical and productivity advantages unavailable elsewhere. You get to focus on the creative things you love most, while your clients benefit by more budget going to pretty pixels, great experiences and creative problem solving—not maintaining server stacks, constantly patching security updates or figuring out how to quickly/safely/easily move to more powerful environments [hint: Snapshots are your friend!].

An Amazing Experience

MODX Cloud removes complexity and risk from managing web infrastructure. To get it into as many site builders’ hands as possible, we borrowed from the 37signals playbook with plans that let you manage more MODX projects as your business grows. No nickel-and-diming to start new projects or to work on an existing ones. We will likewise offer affordable, turn-key production bundles with isolated environments for development, production and utility purposes (e.g., staging, demos, R&D or testing upgrades).

Early adopters will get even more, but we’re saving that for closer to launch time. ;)

Ben Davis from BD Creative in Germany sums up the experience you can expect from MODX Cloud:

So far, the features I've seen in MODX Cloud are totally incredible. It's so well designed, it's actually fun to work in. I'll no longer have to spend time doing tedious or mundane server and installation tasks and spend more on ideas, creating and delivering for my clients.
