The Community version is a libre software, licensed under the GNU LGPLv3. The Enterprise version has proprietary extra features and services.

Introduction

Scaling up your business and maintaining an ever growing portfolio of different projects can become quite challenging. As an Odoo integrator it is very common that after the first production rollout of a project you also take the responsibility for the day-2-day operations making sure the customer’s Odoo environment is running reliably and securely. Efficiency becomes an ever more growing challenge as you take on more projects that eventually go into production. Do you scale up your support team or do you improve and optimize your operations? How about the ability to reuse what you have learned on previous projects and apply those learnings onto new ones?
This is where the DeltaBlue Platform comes into play.
Let’s go over the 5 key advantages, why Odoo and DeltaBlue are such a great fit!

Key advantages

1. Structure

One of the biggest advantages of using DeltaBlue.Cloud is that the platform brings a structured and uniform way of building new Odoo projects. Development becomes repeatable and reusable though flexible enough to adjust to each project's unique requirements. Typically, setting up a new project becomes a task of a few minutes. Advanced uses go a step further and automate these steps in their own toolset by using the platform API's.

DeltaBlue.Cloud provides functionalities such as blueprints and variables that allow you to streamline development and management of new and existing projects.

Maintaining a bunch of projects becomes a lot easier by running them all in one place.

2. Reliable

Odoo is commonly used in mission critical environments which require optimal performance and availability. High availability features available in the DeltaBlue Platform allow Odoo installations to keep functioning even in the event of a hardware failure or even a complete loss of a datacenter. Customizable SLA's allow for specific RPO's and MTTR's per environment to suit the specific needs for each client. Built-in Disaster Recovery features protect all your projects and data against catastrophic events.

Of course backups are a critical part in any setup. That's why with DeltaBue Platform you can configure your own specific backup schedules or use snapshots. For example, when performing maintenance tasks, you can create an instant snapshot of your apps, just in case ;)

3. Open architecture

Unlike other Odoo platforms, DeltaBlue’s platform is designed with an open architecture in mind, giving you complete freedom on how the configure your projects. Whether you need custom routing to a 3rd party cloud service such as G-Suite or Office365, or a secure connection (IPSec) to your client’s onPremise infrastructure, just add it to your project. Want to run an additional application in a different language? Just add it to your project. It’s as easy as that!

4. Support

Support is an important factor when choosing the right partner for your Odoo projects. At DeltaBlue we have years of experience supporting Odoo projects of all types and sizes across many countries. Tailor made subscription plans guarantee the support that you need running your Odoo portfolio.

5. Cost optimization

DeltaBlue PaaS uses a "Pay-per-Use" model which only incurs costs while your applications are running. Features such as scheduled stop and start allow you to gain substantial cost savings on your development and staging environments by stopping them when they are not needed.

Blueprints and snapshots allow you to quickly build new environments based on your own preferences reducing the time required to kickstart new projects.

DeltaBlue provides a cost summarization per project as well as a detailed overview per environment, allowing you to keep control of your spendings. Guaranteed cost limits prevent unwanted surprises at the end of the month while profiting of the "Pay-per-Use" model. In contrast to other "Pay-per-Use" cloud providers, at DeltaBlue you cannot have runaway costs. You are in control of your maximum spend per project.

With DeltaBlue PaaS you can expect a big optimization in your TCO so can stay on top of your spending without sacrificing quality.

Conclusion

DeltaBlue PaaS allows you to scale up your business efficiently by providing the tools to structure your projects, reduce the waste of overall maintenance and support time. Your team will focus on delivering projects and continuously improve the way they do it. All this leads to an improved TCO and faster growth of your business.
