How to start with Web PaaS powered by Platform.sh

Your questions answered

What are examples of technical concepts and definitions that will help me understand the Web PaaS?

Framework: To help developers build applications, frameworks might include code libraries, tool sets, an API,  compilers and support programs. They unify all the necessary components that enable project development. Web frameworks support web apps such as web services, resources and APIs.

Git: A system to track changes in files with the goal of increasing efficiency, data integrity, and support for non-linear workflows. It helps developers to coordinate and work collaboratively.

Development Branch: Development branches enables software development teams to work simultaneously on specific parts of a project without impacting each other. Teams organize more efficiently by branching and merging on a shared code base.

Technical Stack: Technical stacks combine programming languages, frameworks, a database, front-end tools, back-end tools, and applications connected via APIs. Developers use these to build web sites and apps. Apps are comprised of a client side and a server side, with each layer built atop the one below, thus creating a stack.

Provisioning: Refers to setting up or adding to IT infra, or the steps required to manage access to resources or data (and to make them available).

DevOps: A combination of development and operations. Usually refers to a companies IT development and operations teams. Web PaaS powered by Platform.sh automates the vast majority of DevOps tasks.

CLI: Command line program that executes operating system functions using text input. Allows for better control and operation. Used in programming environments and utility programs. With Web PaaS powered by Platform.sh, every action available in the User Graphical Interface is also available in the Command Line Interface (CLI).

Clone (Snapshot): A clone is a perfect copy. It is a snapshot of your entire production environment, including content, code, configuration, services, databases and database content. Clones make it possible for developers to work on real data on their per-production branches.

How do I collaborate with multiple developers on the same environment?

Each Web PaaS user has a role that controls their access and permission levels. Different roles allow different levels of access to your applications, environments and projects. You can manage how users interact with your project and environments at Web PaaS.

Any user added to a project or an environment type on Web PaaS will need to register for an account before they can contribute.

Why create multiple environments for my web projects?

Environments are separate instances of applications, which include all the required services. They're complete working environments that are isolated from others in the project. 

Projects often include the production environment as well as one or more additional environments. These environments are perfect for development, testing, staging, review, etc.

Environments can be created via the CLI, through a Git Clone, or on the solution's web console.

Technical FAQ?

For technical details on the product (branches, services, local filesystem, SSH, etc.), please read our technical FAQ.

Which runtime environments and services are available with the different solutions?

Platform.sh offers you access to a wide range of frameworks, programming languages and web services.

  • With the Start solution: express, gatsby, koa, moinmoin, nodejs, pelican, php, probot, python 2, sculpin, symfony 3, symfony4, symfony5, WordPress.
  • With the Develop and Expand solutions: aspnet-core, backdrop, beego, django, govcms8, drupal, opigno, echo, elastic-apm, express, flask, gatsby, gin, golang, hugo, jenkins, jetty, koa, Laravel, lisp, magento2ce.

Can I migrate to a higher or lower solution?

You can stay on the solution you have chosen and allocate additional resources (vCPU, test environments, storage) or reduce its attributes, depending on your needs. Only the additional storage option cannot be cancelled once it has been set up. The additional storage option is expressed and billed on a monthly basis for 5Gb packs per environment.
You can also upgrade to a higher plan if you want more flexibility and more users.
Finally, you can only switch to a lower plan from the Expand solution to the Develop solution. You cannot migrate a project from a Develop or Expand solution to a Start solution.

Am I in a contract? For how long?

You are signed up for a one-month period with automatic renewal. Your bill will be amended if you upgrade to a higher plan during the month.

What is a development platform?

 

An application development platform is a PaaS solution that allows developers to create, manage, test, and deploy their business applications in a simple, centralised way. Regardless of the programming language, it allows teams to code without worrying about testing and delivery phases. This gives developers an opportunity to gain speed and flexibility in the production and marketing of a large number of business applications.

 

What can a PaaS do for you?

 

  • Provide infrastructure
  • Orchestrate containers
  • Self-heal containers
  • Manage Continuous Integration and Continuous Deployment pipeline (CI/CD)
  • Fully manage services, including databases, search engines, message queues, caches, network storage.
  • Provide Application Runtimes
  • Offer API provisioning
  • Handle Licensing
  • Run Patching
  • Secure your environments
  • Backup
  • Provide user Web interface and CLI


What do you have to do?

 

Hand over the platform to developers so they need to only focus on their source code !

The advantages of CI/CD:

The CI/CD (Continuous Integration/Continuous Delivery) process is designed to speed up the production, development and delivery of business applications.

  • Since the developer’s application code is constantly being tested, this method allows for a high scalability of the application produced in a stable environment.
  • Simplifying programming tasks for developers allows them to make corrections to their code more often, thus improving its quality and the user experience.
  • More collaborative work between developer team members.
  • Avoid cascading integration issues and reduce technical debt.
  • Platform.sh CI/CD pipeline includes a perfect and instant clone of the whole production into staging environments. The whole platform, its content, its databases and configuration are replicated into the new branches. All this within 2 minutes.
