The Mendix Cloud has a full range of features that make it efficient for managing your application deployments and monitoring your app and database performance. The Mendix Cloud enables you to configure custom domains, backups, alerts, and logs. You can use the fine-grained access controls that are provided, and in the long term, you can use the rich set of tools for live debugging.
The Mendix Cloud is the most optimized and self-service cloud for running Mendix applications. It comes with a rich set of features to ensure that your applications are run with the best possible business continuity and self-control.
The sections below describe the features delivered by the Mendix Cloud.
Each application running in the Mendix Cloud gets a default daily backup. Next to that, it is possible to create a backup of your app at any time via self-service. Optionally, it is possible to upgrade your backup policy to go to real-time replication and backup.
For more details, see the section How Does Mendix Cloud Support Backup & Recovery? in Mendix Cloud Overview.
The Developer Portal provides all the necessary metrics for you to analyze the performance of your application. This is not limited to insights into memory or CPU utilization, as it is even possible to see metrics on the actual model execution. This allows you to respond more quickly to a specific performance bottleneck and optimize your application more easily.
If you need to perform a root cause analysis on a running application and the issue only occurs in production, it is possible to connect Mendix Studio or Mendix Studio Pro to your production environment and perform live debugging.
For more information, see the section How Can I Debug a Live App Running in the Cloud in Debugging Facilities.
In the Mendix Cloud, it is possible to extend the access security of your application by using whitelisting based on IP filtering and by using TLS client certificate verification. This ensures that an app is only accessible from a another specific machine or location (like your office).
