Supported modules in the cloud

This page describes the supported features of Magnolia Cloud.

Magnolia Cloud bundle variants

Magnolia offers two Cloud bundle variants to suit the needs of our customers and partners.

Standard bundle – Light Development

This variant includes the standard Magnolia DX Core bundle and additionally offers Magnolia Connector Packs and selected Special Features.

This cloud variant focuses on speed and agility for your projects. Your site is hosted in Magnolia Cloud; Magnolia manages the environment as a service.

The fully managed environment provides the infrastructure for Light Development as well as the Cockpit, which you use for:

  • Configuration

  • Deployment workflow

  • Backup and restore

  • Logs and Monitoring

  • Additional services

With this cloud variant, you can customize Magnolia using light development and manage the deployment environment via the Cockpit.

Custom bundle – Light Development and Java Development

This cloud variant is geared toward complex projects that need a high level of customization. With this cloud variant, you can customize Magnolia using both Light Development and Java custom modules.

Your site is hosted in Magnolia Cloud and you or your chosen Partner manages the creation of custom Java modules and the deployment of the bundle. This variant provides the highest level of flexibility allowing for a custom CMS that fits your unique needs. It also includes all the functionality of the standard DX Core bundle and additionally offers Magnolia Connector Packs and selected Special Features.

Our experienced Services team is available to provide best practices and help you onboard to our cloud.
