What is DXP Cloud?

Liferay DXP Cloud is a secure, reliable enterprise cloud platform (PaaS) that simplifies the deployment, management, and scaling of Liferay DXP. DXP Cloud provides autoscaling, development tools, environments, monitoring, and much more, all designed with years of in-house Liferay expertise.


DXP Cloud contains a suite of features that enables DevOps teams to deploy faster and with more confidence and security. Here are some of the out-of-the-box features:

Autoscaling: Dynamically scale bandwidth and compute capacity to maintain steady performance through traffic peaks. This helps IT teams automatically address unexpected traffic flows and avoid service disruptions. Similarly, unneeded resources can be downscaled during periods of lower activity. Teams receive automatic notifications and email alerts regarding instance usage so they can manage resources with confidence.

Governance: Administrators can deliver maximum productivity and security by adding or removing people from teams and managing permissions within each project environment. With DXP Cloud, there’s no need to develop and deploy a separate permissioning tool to fit your organization’s DevOps workflow; this functionality is available out-of-the-box.

High Availability: Deliver high-availability, zero-downtime deployments to ensure that mission-critical sites stay online. DXP Cloud supports the creation of fault tolerance processes to meet organizations’ unique needs and detect and repair common server problems as they occur. This helps prevent small programming errors from accumulating and causing a server crash, without the need to allocate additional resources.

Monitoring: DXP Cloud delivers detailed performance metrics so IT teams can understand the health and compute requirements of their sites over time. Administrators can use out-of-the-box Dynatrace integration to quickly understand CPU and memory usage, data transfer rates, and more.

Application Management: Administrators can also keep track of application performance with real-time build and deployment logs. DevOps teams can analyze stack traces and troubleshoot bugs from their web console and command line interface, or download the logs for use in their preferred tools.

Backup, Recovery, and Security: DXP Cloud provides automatic, secure backups to ensure that data and documents are protected and ready for restoration in case of critical data corruption or failure. Encryption at rest ensures that sensitive data saved on disks isn't readable by any user or application without a valid key. DXP Cloud delivers data through multi-region architecture to ensure high availability.
