Akeneo Cloud Hosting meets Artifakt
Our architecture is customized specifically for Akeneo, with all dependencies and prerequisites already installed and optimized specifically for Akeneo. No need to play around with MySQL, PHP, and ElasticSearch… it’s already handled. You choose your Akeneo version and connect your code to Artifakt.
Deploy your PIM to production
Deployment has never been so easy. We are using an automated pipeline, with a blue-green deployment process that takes a few minutes. Follow everything as it rolls out in real time directly from the console, from spinning instances to getting online.
If the deployment fails, your actual website stays online while you fix the problem, no more stress about loosing revenue.
Experience a secure overview of your resources
Once your Akeneo app is online, you get access to your resources and product informations just like before. You now benefit from a state of the art Cloud hosting. Top-notch security is also included through WAF and access restrictions. Keeping your data safe is our priority.
We have Akeneo specialists in-house, available to help you deploy and maintain your online shop. We can guide your Akeneo Cloud onboarding with premium support, or help you debug wrong behaviours, performance and security issues.
How does Artifakt deploy my Akeneo website?
Deploying Akeneo requires some manual configuration steps:
- Download the archive or use Composer to create your project.
- Update the
.envfile to define the database info, the environment, and the Elasticsearch address.
- Configure the system to execute
- Configure where PHP will write the logs and tune PHP’s configuration.
Artifakt automates your Akeneo deployment using a blue-green process. Your website is deployed without any downtime and updates are preformed without disrupting your visitors.
If the update fails, the new host isn’t pushed online and your visitors remain on the original production server while you correct the bug. Rollback to a previous version with a click of a button!
All logs are centralized in the console giving you a clear overview of every operation and allowing you to keep an eye on your deployment in real-time.
How does Artifakt deploy my Magento website?
The recommended pipeline is composed of three systems:
On the development system:
- update Magento configuration to fit your needs
- write the configuration to a file
- check the modified files into the repository
On the build system:
- fetch the configuration changes from the repository
- compile the code
- deploy the static view files
- check the compiled and static view files into the repository
On the production system:
- enable maintenance mode
- get code changes from the repository
- stop queue workers (available for the Enterprise plan)
- update/import the new configuration
- set sensitive values
- end maintenance mode
Make sure to deploy Magento on a secondary server and redirect the traffic to this secondary node. With Artifakt, this long process is automated using a blue-green deployment process—while your production is on the "green" server, we prepare the "blue" for production. When it is ready, we switch seamlessly the traffic to "blue", which then becomes your new “green” (production).
If the deployment fails, your website stays online and you stay stress free!
If you need to test your deployment before going live, create a new environment separate from your main production.
How does Artifakt keep my Akeneo website safe?
The security of your product's database is critical to your business. Akeneo is using the popular and regularly updated PHP framework, Symfony.
Artifakt also adds extra security layers on top of Akeneo, namely:
- connection restriction to strictly necessary connections
- a dedicated network for your application
- cloud hosting best practices
- a Web Application Firewall (WAF)
How does Artifakt maintain the performance of my Akeneo website?
From the instance choice to the CDN delivery, we study and choose the most fitting machines for Akeneo web applications in order to provide our clients with the best performance possible.
With the Professional and Enterprise plans, you benefit from the Elastic storage to avoid full-disk problems.
Automate scaling with the Enterprise plan—when traffic gets busy your server automatically adapts by increasing or decreasing the number of servers. This allows your application to be totally resilient. Auto-scaling is seamless and without any service disruption.
