Run Mendix in your cloud of choice

Looking for options to deploy Mendix? Prefer public cloud, private cloud, virtual private cloud or a mix? No problem! You’re just 1-click away to deploy Mendix in your cloud of choice. Mendix leverages Cloud Foundry, the open source, industry standard platform for cloud applications, offering seamless portability of Mendix applications between public and private clouds.

Mendix Cloud

The most resilient low-code platform cloud

Mendix Cloud is our public cloud service and the default deployment option for Mendix applications. Cloud-Foundry-based, running globally on AWS, Mendix Cloud 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
  • Auto Recovery – Automatically recover applications if the service is interrupted
  • 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
  • Instant Resizing – Add more compute power to applications, instantly resizing them in runtime
  • Flexible File Storage – Manage AWS S3-based file storage with flexible limits
  • Application Portability – Port applications seamlessly across public and private clouds.

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.

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.

Officially supported Cloud Foundry installations include:

Virtual Private Cloud

Mendix in your VPC at AWS or Azure

If you’re using a virtual private cloud to manage workloads at AWS or Azure, you can easily deploy Mendix in your VPC leveraging the services and resources from your enterprise account. Buy Mendix from the AWS or Azure marketplace or bring your own license and benefit from:

  • Docker Deployment – Instantly deploy applications in a virtual private cloud using Docker containers
  • Continuous Delivery – Leverage integrations with Continuous Delivery services
  • Application Portability – Port applications seamlessly across Cloud Foundry and Docker-based environments

On Premises

If you can’t come to us, we’ll come to you!

Despite the advantages of leveraging the cloud, there are scenarios that call for on premises deployment. The good news is that Mendix runs in your data center too. And thanks to our miniaturized footprint we won’t take up too much space.
