  1. System Administration | Getting rid of system administration activities can save up to 1-2 FTEs depending on the size of your dotCMS infrastructure. That easily saves you $200,000 – $300,000 per year. 
  2. Annual CMS Upgrades | Included in any dotCMS Cloud subscription is the annual core CMS upgrade (LTS to LTS). It's painless and there's no upcharge. Other managed hosting provider can charge thousands.

  4. Cloud Self-Services | As mentioned in our Spring Updates 2022 webinar, dotCMS is working on a Cloud Control app that enables a number of self-service scenarios, including but not limited to ad-hoc back-ups & restores, spinning up new environments, and many more.
