Magnolia Cloud (Legacy)

Magnolia Cloud (Legacy) is an offering that provides:

  • Magnolia CMS optimized for running in the cloud.

  • A complete application development environment running on AWS.

  • Managed services for enterprise-grade security.

Magnolia offers two cloud bundle variants to suit the needs of our customers and partners:

  • Standard bundle variant focuses on speed and agility for your projects by leveraging Light Development. Your site is hosted in Magnolia Cloud; Magnolia manages the environment as a service.

  • Custom bundle variant is geared toward complex projects that need a high level of customization using both Light Development and Java custom modules.
