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.

Contentful is a pure CaaS (Content as a Service) player. It comes from Berlin, and is currently the global market leader for decoupled hosted content management.

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
  • Widely used across industries
  • No technical operations needed
  • Free tier for hobbyists
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)
  • Limited customisation capabilities
  • Vendor lock in (though export is possible)
  • Pricing for large amounts of content
