AEM as a Cloud Service helps you create high-performance, high-impact experiences without breaking the bank. It leverages cloud scalability, security, and agility, allowing you to deliver compelling content quickly across your digital channels.

AEM as a Cloud Service employs a continuous integration and delivery (CI/CD) model, ensuring that users can access the latest features and updates without needing manual upgrades or patches. This model significantly reduces the operational overhead and simplifies the management of digital experiences, making it an attractive choice for organizations looking to innovate and scale efficiently in the digital sphere.

Why Migrate to AEM as a Cloud Service?

Classic AEM is a large, monolithic application with the same limitations as any legacy non-cloud-native platform. The most notable aspects of any cloud service are scalability and extensibility. This, in part, is what AEM as a Cloud Service brings to the table. AEM as a Cloud Service is a result of refactoring the monolithic AEM application into a set of modular components/services that are cloud native. Because of this refactoring, AEM as a Cloud Service inherits cloud benefits like scalability, agility, and extensibility. Core concepts like replication, asset computing/processing, and repository services are refactored, updated, and included in AEM Cloud Service.

Here are the key benefits of AEM as a Cloud Service:

  • Robust on-demand storage
  • No content freeze and downtime
  • Protects against cloud disasters and failures
  • Auto-scaling
  • Fast rendering and processing of 100% pixel-quality assets
  • Always up to date with performance enhancements and security updates
  • Ensures high performance during peak hours of user traffic
  • Continuous access to the latest innovations
