Flexible deployment options

SDL Web’s decoupled architecture and REST-based microservices provide a modular setup so you can optimize performance and resources use by deploying system elements in different logical and physical locations.

You can deploy SDL Web on premise, using a hybrid model or in the cloud as a managed service. Tailor your deployment to support your existing infrastructure, security, privacy and other deployment considerations.
