Recommended environment

This is a big subject and, as you know, there are many ways to set things up to be robust. That said, some practices are better than others. I can relate at least what we do and what we've seen customers do.

First, I'd recommend thinking of Cloud CMS as black box application that runs on top of MongoDB, Elastic Search (both of which can be thought of as databases) and a binary storage provider. Cloud CMS is a stateless application whose setup is actually quite simple. It doesn't mainta

Overview The Cloud CMS Application Server offers an easy way for customers to assemble powerful, front-end custom APIs and web sites for Cloud CMS. It is completely free and runs on top of the popular Node.js technology stack. With Cloud CMS, customers have a choice of using any front-end presentation technology they wish. In many cases, customers already have a technology investment (such as C#, PHP, Java or Ruby) and thus a preference for continuing to build on that technology stack. H

Supporting large binary files

In our SaaS offering, everything is stored in S3 automatically and when you install on-premise, you can configure this to your preference. See this documentation page under Binary Storage:

Definitions for Date format

Our definitions are based on JSON schema and, as such, the default is to use strings for dates. The date controls in our forms engine let you customize the format string so that you can store ISO 8601 or other formats (perhaps simplified formats) as per your preference. The advantage here is simplicity with these controls and compatibility with JSON schema. The disadvantage is that MongoDB provides a lot of very powerful capabilities for range query and sorting that do not play as nicely with

How does Cloud CMS work with a CDN

There are a few places where this either occurs automatically if you're using our hosted service or can occur optionally if you're either running within Docker containers on your own or integrating to custom CDN endpoints.

First, the API itself can be fronted by a CDN that supports fallback lookup to an origin server.  In this case, we recommend Amazon CloudFront with short-lived TTLs on cache headers.  More specifically, you can use Amazon's API Gateway to get caching coverage across
