Lightning Fast Hosting

Pantheon is the world’s fastest hosting for Drupal. It comes down to our super-efficient container-based platform. Multiple independent benchmarks have compared Pantheon with other providers, and we consistently come out on top. See the report.

Our Roots Are in Drupal

Pantheon's roots are in Drupal. As part of the developer community for years, we saw the need for a better solution to hosting. When you host your site on Pantheon, you get the fastest performance in the industry—you also get developer tools, automated workflows, and rock-solid security measures.

  • DRUPAL 8

    We helped lay out the core architecture for the new Configuration Management system and sponsored the initial development.

  • DRUSH

    Pantheon supports the ongoing work to maintain and improve Drupal's command-line interface.

  • DRUPAL 8 CACHE BACKPORT

    Drupal 8 Cache Backport is a module that brings Drupal 8 cache tags and cache max-age back to Drupal 7.

Protect Yourself from Performance Issues

With most hosting providers, you run the risk of downtime when traffic spikes or other sites hog shared resources. On Pantheon, you can scale to millions of pageviews without affecting performance. The platform’s container-based infrastructure makes it far more reliable than VMs or clusters. Now that's enterprise-grade WordPress hosting.

Smooth Scaling

Compared to others, Pantheon gave us everything. We have dev sites we can work with, dev to production workflow, an intuitive GUI, a competitive price for production, and great performance when under pressure.

Fully-Loaded Drupal Hosting

The best tools for driving performance are built into Pantheon's platform. Varnish and Redis provide high-speed edge caching and robust application caching, while New Relic powers application performance monitoring. The platform's infrastructure is optimized for speed and uptime in a container-based Linux environment—see why we use containers over widely-used virtual machines.

OUR ARCHITECTURE

Built-In Staging Environments

Give your team the power of great workflow. You never pay for development or staging environments on Pantheon. Every site comes with identical pre-configured Dev, Test, and Live environments connected by version control. Use a continuous integration workflow and deploy code safely.

Dev Test Live

Develop

Develop in the cloud and work seamlessly with version control.

Review

New code from Dev and current content from Live are unified in Test.

Scale

Elastic hosting scales your site as you add content and grow your traffic.

Deploy Custom Distributions

Drupal is a powerful tool for using custom distributions across large organizations. Each department or business line can spin up a site from a codebase with all of the essential features and branding, while the distribution is centrally maintained.
