This Presentation was given at the TYPO3 Launch Event in Milano, Italy.
I will show you how TYPO3 has evolved into being cloud-ready. Additionally, this will show how your organization can profit from easier and faster innovation cycles. This will include a Demo of a TYPO3 v8 being deployed on Platform.sh.
Disclaimer: Beware of the quotes given in this presentation! :-)

Cumulus clouds by Fir0002/Flagstaffotos (CC BY-NC)
In meteorology, a cloud is an aerosol comprising a visible mass
of minute liquid droplets, frozen crystals, or particles
suspended in the atmosphere above the surface of a planetary
On Earth, clouds are formed as a result of saturation of the air
when it is cooled to its dew point, or when it gains sufficient
moisture (usually in the form of water vapor) from an adjacent
source to raise the dew point to the ambient temperature.
Clouds are formed in the homosphere (which includes the
troposphere, stratosphere, and mesosphere).
Nephology is the science of clouds which is undertaken in the
cloud physics branch of meteorology.
Virtual servers are
not the cloud.
How are you currently hosting?
● What are the problems you are confronted with?
● How fast can you change the code of your hosted
● How fast can you roll back this change?
● How many time have you experienced surprises?
○ Worked on my machine
● How fast are your developers on your project?
For many years hosting TYPO3 was about
● Buying or renting servers in data center
● Installing all the required software components
● Thinking about scaling (vertical & horizontal)
● Taking care of the backup & recovery
● Monitoring the servers
● Upgrading the software components
● Putting your Application on it
Hosting & Cloud
● How much of this activity is paid by your client?
● Do you want to spend less time on that?
● Do you want to concentrate on the application instead of
of the infrastructure administration?
