Liferay Digital Experience Platform Scalability

Founder & CEO at a tech services company with 11-50 employees
This solution is not really suitable for small businesses. Our clients usually are medium-sized and enterprise companies. The smallest company that we are working with that has this kind of solution is about 300 people, and I consider that medium-sized. If you have a company of 50 people who are internal users, I don't think that Liferay Digital is the best solution for you. It is not like taking on a freelancer temporarily so that he builds the website and that is it. You have to maintain the system and you have to know how to manage that. If they want something more than a simple solution, I think small companies should look something like solutions on the Cloud with built-in functionalities. But, on the other hand, let's say if you are a company of 50 people but you have 50,000 customers. Then you have a significant customer base and you may be able to use Liferay to your advantage. It depends on what you do. If you have extensive work engagement with your customers, that can be a good solution. It has the functionalities to handle more intensive customer relationships. In any case, it is very scalable both in functionality and the ability to handle a large number of users. It is an enterprise solution. View full review »

The reason Liferay Digital Experience was chosen over other products was the fact that we did not have to pay for user licenses. Liferay supported an infinite number of users. The business case for the application was the business community in Tanzania to be able to register in the portal and apply for a business license. So however much the users of the system grow we are confident Liferay shall handle the load without any issues So in terms of scalability, my answer is that Liferay is okay. In terms of hardware we have multiple servers. The setup we had was for purposes of having improved responsiveness and availability. View full review »
