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.

eZ Platform is a CMS built on the Symfony Framework. It is powerful and a total rewrite of the eZ Publish system in development from 1999.

  • Clean admin UI with drag & drop layout management
  • A full implementation on the Symfony Full Stack Framework
  • Fully featured out of the box, media library, multilingual, multisite...
  • Integrated Solr powered search ensures scalability
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 number of ready made extensions
  • Some bugs in the UI layer in the first version
  • Learning curve for "old school" PHP developers without OOP experience
