Mattermost Cloud Overview

Mattermost Cloud delivers the industry’s leading open-source collaboration platform in a highly secure, dedicated cloud environment designed for privacy-conscious enterprises and developer collaboration.

Mattermost Cloud is built on open-source software powered by a thriving developer community. The open-source approach enables software with a modular architecture, built with modern software development practices.

Mattermost Cloud comes in two editions: Mattermost Cloud Professional and Mattermost Cloud Enterprise.

Mattermost Cloud Professional

Mattermost Cloud Professional includes the full set of collaboration and DevOps features and is available from the Mattermost.com website. Signing up requires creating an account with an email and specifying a domain for the workspace. Once you sign up and create your workspace, a wizard will guide you through a quick setup, invitation for team members, and integration with developer tools. The service is free for up to 10 users and converts to per-user pricing after that.

Mattermost Cloud Professional offers all enterprise-grade administration features, including:

  • Identity Management: Single Sign-on, SAML and AD/LDAP user and group provisioning, guest management, and enterprise mobility management.

Mattermost Cloud Enterprise

Mattermost Cloud Enterprise offers the isolation, security, and control of self-hosted editions but without the burden of managing deployment, maintaining uptime, or applying upgrades. Mattermost Cloud Enterprise offers all chat and administration features, integrated DevOps workflows, provides a 99.0% financially-backed guaranteed uptime, and enterprise-grade support.

Every Mattermost Cloud Enterprise instance is deployed in a private environment within an AWS VPC dedicated to a single customer. Within that VPC, all the required resources to run, monitor, and administer Mattermost are deployed in isolation. These resources include a dedicated RDS Aurora database cluster and a dedicated Kubernetes cluster, deployed across multiple Availability Zones and managed by Kubernetes experts.

This intentional isolation and dedicated deployment supports other privacy-centric features, such as VPC Peering, bring-your-own-domain and certificates, mutual TLS, access to monitoring tools, databases to run custom analysis, and more.

Future releases will include an enterprise network integration with VPC Peering, TLS mutual authentication, and additional data residency options.
