SilverStripe Platform Architecture

Architecture Centred

Flexible options for every SilverStripe site

Stacks measure the size of SilverStripe Platform used to run your website and come in various options to support different levels of load and resiliency. A stack includes your live site as well as a test environment for your web team to safely check code and new features. Further environments can be added.

For a detailed overview see our Platform stack size comparison chart.

Solo Stack

This cost effective option is best suited for sites with steady traffic up to 50,000 page views per month. This allows smaller businesses harness the premium support and stability offered by SilverStripe Platform. 

Small Stack

Perfectly suited for sites with up to 500,000 page views per month when traffic is often unpredictable.  AWS auto-scaling ensures you pay for only what your site requires while still having adequate resources when traffic does spike. 

Medium Stack

Our medium sized stack is suited to sites with monthly page views up to 2,000,000 and provides strengthened durability by hosting over multiple AWS data centers within the same region.

Large Stack

This option provides the same benefits of our medium stack but with twice the number of servers and traffic, This is ideal for sites that experience high traffic and require premium support and reliability at all times.

Enterprise Stack

Built for critical sites that experience over 6,000,000 monthly page views. Harnessing all features of SilverStripe Platform ensures web team's within large organisations can focus on continually improving their sites while we make sure it's always running smoothly and securely.
