Presslabs Dashboard – First Cloud-native Hosting Platform for WordPress

One of the most important values for us at Presslabs was to provide a service that we’re extremely proud of. Fast sites means happy clients, but what do you do when you feel like there’s always room for improvement?

You innovate.

This is how the Presslabs Dashboard came to life. The Dashboard allows WordPress agencies and site owners to benefit from a highly sophisticated technology by providing scalable, automatic and highly available solutions for keeping WordPress sites protected and fast under heavy traffic.

It is the first cloud-native SaaS solution designed especially for WordPress, based on Kubernetes technology and powered by Google Cloud Platform. It runs only on Google Cloud Kubernetes Engine and can be installed directly from Google Cloud Marketplace, one of the most advanced Kubernetes integrators in the cloud ecosystem.

#Based on the Stack, built to scale

The Presslabs Dashboard is a result of implementing the open-source Presslabs Stack on top of the most advanced Google Cloud services, bringing all the untapped opportunities and benefits of modern technologies in the WordPress stack.

With a decade of experience in engineering and more than 20.000 hours of work with Kubernetes and cloud-native solutions, we aimed at providing all the advantages of a highly sophisticated technology such as container orchestration platform — Kubernetes, in a very simple and easy to handle end-to-end solution.

#Why you should use the Dashboard?

Because it was built as a reimagined site management platform that allows managing, scaling and updating the WordPress backend in a modern and reliable way, right into your Kubernetes cluster, the Dashboard delivers a fluid horizontal and dynamic scaling solution based on the incoming traffic.

That helps keep the cost under control without sacrificing availability and leads to greater autonomy and flexibility for both WordPress owners and developers.

Full control

The Dashboard offers full control over the infrastructure by allowing to quickly create, deploy and scale WordPress sites in a very intuitive way. On top of that, it gives site owners full control over their data and on how it is managed, stored and distributed.

Own your data

Another interesting factor is that the Dashboard runs on a users’ own Google Cloud account, allowing for clearer Data Processing Agreements to comply with Europe’s GDPR, thus reducing the number of third parties handling sensitive data. 

Modern cloud technology

At the same time, the Presslabs Dashboard allows you to implement a strengthened cloud strategy for your organization, with the aim of helping you keep pace with modern technologies without the need to expand your ops team or to have advanced Kubernetes technical skills.

What that does is offering a shortcut. You can now bring cloud-native features (and benefits) to your WordPress environment.
