Break Stories, Not Servers.

Publishers don’t plan every headline weeks in advance. When they see a good story, they follow it—wherever it leads. They don’t ask for permission to run a scoop. They just do it.

You shouldn’t have to ask for permission to scale your website either. Yet that’s what traditional web hosting requires; it means putting publishers in a position where they have to work against their own workflows. Hundreds of millions of pageviews are permitted, but only with careful planning and manual server configuration.

Publish faster and go viral without risk.

With Pantheon’s media web hosting, there’s no limit to how many stories reporters can break or how many pageviews the organization can serve. Just as publishing is automated with an open source CMS, media companies can automate system administration, performance, and security by running Drupal or WordPress sites on Pantheon. Scale instantly to hundreds of millions of pageviews. The platform does all the work, automatically scaling, so stories can go viral without penalties. No more outages, slowdowns, or performance hits.
