Mendix Cloud

The most resilient low code platform cloud.

The Mendix Cloud is our public cloud service and the default deployment option for Mendix applications. Cloud-Foundry-based, running globally on AWS, Mendix is the only Low-Code Platform that offers customers out-of-the-box application resilience and scalability:

Availability Zones

Automatically provision applications running across AWS Availability Zones

Instant Resizing

Add more compute power to applications, instantly resizing them in runtime

Auto Recovery

Automatically recover applications if the service is interrupted

Flexible File Storage

Manage AWS S3-based file storage with flexible limits

Application Portability

Port applications seamlessly across public and private clouds.

12-factor Principles

Adhere to cloud-native, 12-factor principles with the Mendix cloud, in order to be compatible with future technology.

High Availability

Leverage default High Availability (HA) for all applications, with self-service configuration of HA scenarios from simple to most advanced:

  • Automatically spin up new application containers with Auto Recovery
  • Distribute load with a simple slider for horizontal scaling
  • Option to configure a HA Database

Global Deployment:
Cloud Foundry & AWS

For Mendix, AWS provides the global infrastructure and Cloud Foundry delivers the application deployment engine.

Mendix is a member of the Cloud Foundry initiative and makes use of the open source platform to deliver enterprise-class scalability and application resilience while keeping deployment flexibility. The Mendix R&D team actively contributes to the Cloud Foundry project, benefiting the community, as a whole.

Deployment Chart

Private Cloud

Deploy to any Cloud Foundry Environment

The stateless architecture of the Mendix Platform matches perfectly with the container and resource management services in Cloud Foundry. Mendix can be deployed to any Cloud Foundry environment, including IBM Cloud, Pivotal and SAP.

Cloud Foundry-Ready

Mendix runs on Cloud Foundry as a buildpack.

One-Click Deployment

One-click deploy to any Cloud Foundry environment directly from the Mendix Modeler.

Scalable & Secure

Run web and mobile applications on Cloud Foundry for secure, highly available and scalable operations.

Virtual Private Cloud

Mendix in your VPC at AWS or Azure.

Easily deploy Mendix in your Virtual Private Cloud, leveraging the services and resources from your enterprise account. Buy Mendix from the AWS or Azure marketplace, or utilize your own license and benefit from:

Docker Deployment

Instantly deploy applications in a virtual private cloud using Docker containers orchestrated by Kubernetes.

Continuous Delivery

Leverage automation servers such as Jenkins or Gitlab CI to build and deploy containers on Kubernetes clusters for continuous integration and delivery (CI/CD).

Application Portability

Port applications seamlessly across Cloud Foundry and Docker-based environments.


Despite the advantages of leveraging the cloud, there are scenarios that call for on-premises deployment. You can choose to run Mendix on Linux and Windows hardware on VMs, allowing you to deploy on premises or in a managed hosting environment.
