Ideal for Running On an Enterprise Setting

OCEE adds commercial-grade features to the open-source Web CMS that make it ideal for running in a medium to large enterprise setting, particularly in cases where data security and performance are essential. OCEE features multi-staging scenarios and central server configuration for improved performance and easier maintenance.

  • Multi-staging scenarios with OCEE Replicator enables administrators to configure multiple stages, which might include a development server and delivery server, so that data can first be processed for different approval stages prior to delivery.
  • Centralized server configuration with OCEE Cluster allows administrators to manage scheduled jobs, module parameters and index configuration on multiple machines all from a single GUI.
  • Support for multiple OpenCms organizational units lets administrators connect each unit with an individual path on the LDAP server.
  • An improved cache policy flushes content selectively after publishing, leading to better performance.
