Drupal North Toronto 2018: Hosting Drupal Sites? You need Aegir

An in-depth look at the presentation from Drupal North 2018 on the benefits and features of the Aegir Hosting System for managing Drupal sites.

On Saturday, August 11th, Christopher Gervais and I presented at Drupal North 2018, the annual gathering of the Drupal community in southern Ontario and Quebec, Canada.

Session Information

Do you need a self-hosted solution for hosting and managing Drupal sites? Would you like to be able to upgrade all of your sites at once with a single button click? Are you tired of dealing with all of the proprietary Drupal hosting providers that won’t let you customize your set-up? Wouldn’t it be nice if all of your sites could automatically get free HTTPS certificates?

If you said yes to any of the above questions, there’s only one option: the Aegir Hosting System. While it’s possible to find a company that will host Drupal sites for you, Aegir helps you maintain control whether you want to use your own infrastructure or manage your own software-as-a-service (SaaS) product. Plus, you get all the benefits of open source.

We’ll cover:

  • History
  • Architecture
  • Basic features
  • Advanced features
  • Development workflows
  • Recent additions
  • Future
  • Questions & discussion
