Product intro

Open Orchestra is an Open Source CMS built on the full stack framework. For database it uses a MongoDB, a NoSQL store rather than the more typical Relational Databases such as MySQL or PostgreSQL.

Concrete 5 is a long running content management system. It is known for it's user friendly interface and with it's recent iterations has moved to adopt Symfony components.

Main advantages
  • Full Stack Symfony implementation with focus on code quality
  • NoSQL MongoDB backend allows high performance
  • Clean admin UI with drag & drop layout management
  • Ease of use
  • Extensions marketplace
  • Reasonably sized community
Main disvantages
  • Fairly unknown and not widely adopted
  • Quite dependent on the efforts of a single company
  • Documentation not the best (REST API, for example)
  • Product versioning can be confusing
  • Not many examples for complex implementations
  • Multilingual architecture not top notch
