Why Frappe Cloud

Hybrid Hosting

Get started





Hybrid Hosting

The promise of free and open source software is the ability of customers to host their data on their hardware. Customers still optionally need management and expertise from OEM to ensure uptime and smooth operation. This is where Hybrid hosting gives them the best of both worlds. Frappe Cloud Hybrid helps customers add their servers to be managed with Frappe Cloud. Frappe Cloud offers a server management console that automates many tasks related to hosting and maintenance of Frappe / ERPNext-based deployments.

Hybrid Cloud Architecture

Frappe Cloud has two components that enable the management of a large number of servers and sites - Press and Agent. Press is a central control panel from where the user executes actions like the creation of a site, migration, etc, and monitors logs and errors. An Agent is software that is installed on all servers managed by Press that executes the actions. If you can imagine an orchestra, Press is the conductor and Agent is the musician that plays the music. We currently offer 3 plans under Hybrid Hosting

Hybrid Server

In the server plan, you get to configure one pair of servers (one application server and one database server). The servers can be of any configuration and you can host as many applications and sites as you want. The server will be monitored by standard Frappe Cloud logging and monitoring servers and will be behind the Frappe Cloud proxy firewall.

Server plan is ideal for customers who want to run Frappe / ERPNext on their own environment and let the peripheral servers such as log and monitor servers be managed by Frappe Cloud.

Hybrid Cluster

In the cluster plan, you get to configure your own cluster which includes a proxy server, log server, and monitoring server along with several pairs of application and database servers. Cluster provides an isolated environment for your data and your data will be fully contained in your own private network.

Cluster plans are ideal for enterprises that want full control of their servers and the networking and monitoring components.

Managed Press

Press hosting gives you the full power of Frappe Cloud in your own environment and you can spawn any number of clusters and servers. You can spawn multiple clusters each on a separate cloud or region. Your own instance of the press is managed by Frappe Cloud, and Frappe Cloud has no context or metadata of your servers or clusters.

Press hosting is ideal for larger enterprises who have operations in several regions or software vendors and product companies running their own Frappe-based products.
