Flagsmith Enterprise Edition
The Flagsmith platform is made up of 4 main components:
- The Flagsmith REST API
- The Flagsmith administration front end (a React-based web application)
- A SQL Database (currently we support Postgres)
- A time-series database (currently we support InfluxDB 2.0)
All of these components are open source, but the API is also provided as an "Enterprise Edition" which has additional features and capabilities:
- Roll Based Access Controls
- SAML authentication
- Additional Database Engines (Oracle, SQL Server and MySQL)
We currently support the following infrastructure platforms:
- Redhat OpenShift
- Amazon Web Services (AWS) - via Amazon ECS
- Google Cloud Platform (GCP) - via AppEngine
If you require additional deployment options, please contact us.
We currently have the following orchestration options:
- Pulumi scripts for AWS deployments
- Terraform scripts for AWS and GCP deployments
- Helm Charts for Kubernetes deployments
Please contact us for the relevant source code for these projects.
