Sitecore Announces Cloud Computing Solution

13 Jul 10

Brisbane, July 13, 2010 – Sitecore, the leading provider of .NET Web Content Management System (CMS) software today announced, at Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference, Sitecore CMS 6.3. This solution is for global businesses interested in cost-effectively deploying website delivery centres with a cloud computing strategy. Sitecore customers and partners can now place Web servers in multiple geographies worldwide, allowing for more consistent and responsive website visitor experiences. In addition, this solution enables multiple content authoring servers worldwide to improve content authoring and CMS return on investment.

Sitecore’s dynamic delivery architecture has evolved to a fully balanced architecture that is well-suited for cloud deployment or with a more traditional server configuration. To maintain consistency between the content management and content delivery layer, Sitecore CMS 6.3 is designed with load-distribution, redundancy and scalability – a benefit for content owners and website visitors.

When using a cloud-based delivery model, Sitecore provides the ability to quickly scale to additional needs without the costs associated with a 24X7 environment for hosting Web applications. Furthermore, a cloud computing strategy can shorten time to market and can be more adaptive as new capabilities and functionality are added to a Web solution.

“Speed matters when it comes to managing websites for global audiences with varying content and device preferences,” said Michael Seifert, CEO, Sitecore. “By offering a cloud computing solution, Sitecore continues to innovate for customers and partners to improve their online business results.”

On July 12, 2010, at 5:00 p.m. ET at Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference Room WCC-145B, Sitecore will discuss, with Microsoft leaders, key insights gained through its participation in the Azure Technology Adoption Program in a breakout session “Building a Multi-Tenant SaaS Application with SQL Azure and AppFabric.” Those unable to attend the session can join the conversation with @Sitecore executives via Twitter and using the #WPC10 hashtag.

Later this quarter, as part of Sitecore’s cloud computing initiative, the company will offer integration with Windows Azure™, Microsoft's cloud computing platform. Azure provides scalable computing power and storage, as well as a number of other online services hosted on Microsoft data centres.
