, a leading enterprise open source provider of process
automation, content management, and information governance software,
today announced major product updates to their Digital
Business Platform
, including support for Amazon Elastic Container
Service for Kubernetes (Amazon EKS) and Amazon Glacier. Alfresco’s
support for Amazon Web Services (AWS) empowers solution architects to
build modern, cloud-ready applications in record time.

Alfresco makes it easy to move fast, deploy efficiently, and operate
securely at an unprecedented scale and to “go global” in just minutes
with new enhanced capabilities:

  • Amazon
    EKS Support
    – With Alfresco’s support for Amazon EKS,
    customers can easily deploy, scale and manage large Alfresco
    production implementations – going global in minutes while eliminating
    single points of failure. The ability to do product upgrades and
    patches is simpler and faster.
  • Amazon
    Glacier Support
    – Amazon’s long-term, durable and secure
    storage solution makes a range of use cases dramatically less
    expensive to support. For example, Alfresco customers wanting to
    intelligently optimize the storage costs associated with regulatory
    compliance and legal discovery can now do so at a significant cost
    savings over on-premises storage.
  • The
    New Alfresco Digital Workspace
    – Architecture matters, but
    user experience is paramount. This simple new “out of the box”
    interface is backed by the power of the Alfresco Application
    Development Framework (ADF) and designed to accelerate end-user
    adoption of Alfresco solutions. Providing for the most commonly used
    functions, it can be easily extended with a vast library of pre-built
    modular UX components and robust open APIs, allowing Alfresco
    developers and partners to rapidly create the custom, fit-for-purpose
    applications their users need.

“We are proud to lead the charge in taking advantage of what the cloud
has to offer,” said Bernadette Nixon, CEO of Alfresco. “Alfresco’s
support for Amazon Glacier unlocks up to 70 percent1 savings
when compared to on-premises solutions while offering secure, durable
storage for content archiving. And with its query-in-place
functionality, Glacier support brings old information back to life by
allowing you to run powerful analytics against your archival content
with the Alfresco
Search and Insight Engine
