Business Catalyst is moving to the cloud

- Wednesday, April 03, 2013

As we kick off 2013, we’ve come together as a team to plan for the future of Business Catalyst and align ourselves further with Adobe’s Creative Cloud. After a productive few weeks of meetings internally and with several members of our Partner Advisory Board, we’d like to share our plans for upcoming important infrastructure changes that impact Business Catalyst.

A solid foundation in the cloud

Adobe is investing it’s future in the evolution of traditional software with the revolutionary Creative Cloud. Something that goes hand-in-hand with this commitment is ensuring that all products and services are running on and backed by the same reliable cloud infrastructure.

In the coming months, we will be focusing our attention on transitioning the Business Catalyst platform from our existing data centers over to this new cloud infrastructure. Based on the Amazon Web Services (AWS) cloud computing platform, this infrastructure will ensure increased stability, reliability and scalability as the number of sites hosted with Business Catalyst grows into the future. If you are familiar with AWS yourself, you’ll also know this means even faster load times and higher quality of service for visitors to your client sites.

Stay tuned for instructions

We’re aiming to make this change as seamless as possible for all existing Partners, but recommend you stay tuned for more details in the coming weeks. Some changes will be necessary on your on your behalf, but we will be sure to send you advanced notice and detailed instructions of what action is required.

As work progresses we’ll begin to get in touch via email with further details, so please watch your inbox for any instructions and make sure they don’t hit your spam folder.

For the latest details on our progress, make sure you attend our upcoming Partner Townhall meetings.

Thank you for your continued support,
The Adobe Business Catalyst Team
