Technology & Architecture

Pimcore is powered by the leading technology stack on the web. It’s built on a standardized, robust, modular, open and service-oriented architecture – 100% API driven. Developers just love Pimcore, because developing awesome web applications has never been easier and faster.

Web based awesomeness

Pimcore has been built as a framework for satisfying even the most demanding developers. Based on the leading and most-up-to-date technology stack of PHP/Symfony, MySQL, Elastic Search, Mongo DB and Varnish, developers can realize demanding web applications and websites within a fraction of time.

Open software, leading technology

Flexible by design. Leading the benchmark for time-to-market. Pimcore provides an ideal environment for constant innovation. Creating a new bundle, or revising an existing module, may be all that is required to add that new functionality. This means a turnaround of days or weeks instead of months or years. Integration to new systems is simple. A "connect anything" architecture and a holistic API driven approach, enable a superior level of connectivity.

Frequently Asked Questions

What about scalability and performance?
Pimcore is used in highly agile global environments and at Fortune 500 companies with millions of pages, digital assets and products, hundreds of editors and millions of monthly visitors. Due to the use of leading technologies such as MySQL, PHP, Elastic Search, Mongo DB and Varnish, Pimcore scales very well.
Why is this software free? What's the catch?
Yes, Pimcore is really open-source and free of charge. Free for developers, small businesses, and large global enterprises. Pimcore does not rely on selling licenses. It makes money out of selling optional service level agreements, training and professional services, such as implementation and consulting.
How can I deploy Pimcore? Do you offer hosting?
You can download Pimcore for on-premise deployment or as a package for deployment in the cloud. Pimcore is compatible to Amazon AWS, Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud and other leading on-demand cloud computing providers. Additionally, Pimcore will be available as Platform as a Service (PaaS) in late 2018.
How can I keep my Pimcore solution up-to-date?
Our core development team is driving the continuous development of the product road-map and new features. With a built-in GUI based update functionality, Pimcore can be easily and steadily kept up-to-date. We always ensure that new versions are downwards compatible to previous versions.
How far do customization possibilities go?
First, a wide range of product extensions is available. They are called bundles and can be installed to extend existing features. Second, for creating highly customized solutions it is even possible to extend or modify the product core. Use the core API in combination with web-hooks. This allows you to work with a modified core and still be able to receive all updates.
Can I set up multiple tenants in a single instance?
We treat each company individually based on individual company structure, data model and business processes. We enable enterprises to set up their own solution, with their own users and product catalogs. Each instance of Pimcore writes into a separate, single database. Multiple tenants can be set up of course.
