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 Drupal 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.


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

Run your sites on the fastest Drupal hosting platform on the planet.

Pantheon is the world’s fastest host for Drupal websites. It’s all thanks to our super-efficient container-based platform. Multiple independent benchmarks have compared Pantheon with other providers, and we consistently come out on top. Website speed matters because according to Kissmetrics, 40% of visitors abandon a website that takes more than 3 seconds to load.

Handle traffic spikes and promotions with confidence

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—true enterprise-grade Drupal hosting.

The tools that developers need to drive Drupal performance

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. Our Global CDN guarantees lightning-fast response times around the world.

Managed Drupal Hosting vs. Traditional Drupal Hosting

The standard bare-bones Drupal host offers server space, a few rudimentary tools, and not much else. You build the infrastructure, install the dev tools, and do your own support. With managed hosting on Pantheon, our platform handles architecture, capacity, setup, and more. Each Pantheon account comes with a suite of features designed to make development and administration simple and intuitive.

Pantheon offers more than Drupal hosting

We deliver guaranteed success of your website launch, with ongoing uptime and performance you can always trust.

“We chose Pantheon because we needed somebody who could collaborate with us on a fast-moving, speed-of-light Drupal project.”
Nathan Jacobson, Web Developer

Work seamlessly with built-in staging environments for Drupal development

Never underestimate the power of great workflow. On Pantheon, you never pay for development or staging environments. 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.

Deploy custom distributions across multiple websites

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.

The brilliance of Pantheon is that individual departments can innovate and have their own identity—fully leveraging Drupal—while also maintaining security and providing support for a single codebase.
Franz Hartl , Web Development Manager, Yale University
