Umbraco Cloud

Are you looking for a hassle-free and time-saving hosting option for your Umbraco CMS? We're a proud Platinum Umbraco Partner and our team in Bradford-on-Avon are here to help you take advantage of Umbraco Cloud.

What is Umbraco Cloud?

At its core, Umbraco is an open-source CMS built using Microsoft's .NET programming language. But calling it just a CMS doesn't quite capture its essence. With an intuitive back office, customisable workflows, and a rich ecosystem of plugins, it offers digital solutions that cater to a broad spectrum of needs, from personal blogs to sophisticated e-commerce sites and beyond. 

While Umbraco in its traditional form is impressive, what happens when it meets the limitless potential of cloud technology? To maximise efficiency, this is typically hosted in either Microsoft Azure or Amazon AWS. However, significant optimisation is required to fully utilise either platform. 

Enter Umbraco Cloud, a seamless blend of the classic Umbraco CMS with the robustness and flexibility of cloud hosting in a purpose built hosting and delivery platform. 

Benefits of Umbraco Cloud

Server optimisation

If you want things to just work, right out the box then look no further. Although harnessing the power and scalability of Microsoft's Azure platform, it offers users a fully optimised and simplified experience designed for doing one thing, hosting Umbraco websites really well.

We recommend Umbraco Cloud for many of our clients because it allows us to get them online fast and allows them to start managing their content and stop worrying about everything else!  

Content syncing

With Live, Staging, Development and Local environments all available and independent you’re safe in the knowledge you have true data isolation.

Staging and UAT environments often become outdated from a content perspective and one of the huge benefits of Umbraco Cloud is that you can transfer content, media and forms between any of your environments. Need to work on something in Staging, but using the up to date content from the live site? No problem, just hit restore and pull it down.  

Automatic upgrades and security

Keep your site at its best without lifting a finger. Regular, automatic updates ensure you have the latest features and security patches.

Before security patches are even announced by the Umbraco team, cloud sites have already been automatically patched meaning you’re never left in a vulnerable position ever again.

Stress-Free launch and maintenance

Launching a new website or deploying new features and content should be exciting, not stressful. With Umbraco Cloud, you can avoid the common hassles of website creation and maintenance. 

New features can be fully tested in a completely isolated Development environment and then Deployed to your Live site at the click of a button.

Sync content between environments

One of the main benefits our clients find when using an Umbraco Cloud site is the ability to work on content in an isolated Staging environment and then transfer to Live with the click of a button. Likewise, restore content down from Live into any of your other environments.
