103: CraftCMS - CodePen Blog

Show Description

This is part 3 in a mini-series where we talk with other businesses that, like us, make money off the web.

We're chatting with Brandon Kelly and Brad Bell from Pixel and Tonic, the company behind CraftCMS. CraftCMS is a powerful CMS for building a bring-your-own-HTML website. We talk about things like the challenges of marketing a CMS targeting at designers and developers, pricing a CMS when there's lots of "free" CMS's out there, a la carte pricing, and iterating a pricing model.

Did you know that you can get Amazon Web Services (AWS) hosting through Media Temple? You can! Why would you? AWS delivers many layers of availability not available from a traditional hosting model. For example, AWS offers Auto Scaling Groups bring new instances online in real time as your traffic/workload grows and AWS’s high-availability architecture puts your infra in multiple data centers so you aren’t stuck up a creek without a paddle if one goes offline. Sound complicated? It kinda is. Fortunately Media Temple offers white-glove support for all this, including sophisticated tooling, like managing your integrations through Slack.
