More about Akeneo Cloud Hosting
  • 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 .env file to define the database info, the environment, and the Elasticsearch address.
    • Configure the system to execute PHP cron jobs.
    • 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 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.

  • Which Akeneo requirements does Artifakt set up?

    Artifakt automates all the Akeneo requirements. This includes: 

    • Apache (2.4+) with mod_rewrite enabled and mod_fastcgi (no mod_php or cgi)
    • a number of PHP modules enabled
    • PHP's exec() function enabled
    • a memory limit for PHP set at 1GB for the CLI and 512M for the web service
    • ImageMagick (6.8+)
    • Aspell (with language packs)
    • MySQL (8.0.18+)
    • Elasticsearch (7.5+)
    • some ports open (80, 443, 9200, 22) to access your server from the internet
    • a dedicated domain (or sub-domain)—Akeneo cannot be set up on a non-root configuration
