Our customers tell us they want to move to the cloud.  And we know, through our interactions with our customers and technology partners, that for each, their digital transformation journey will be different. That’s why ForgeRock offers a range of deployments - whether it’s your cloud, their cloud, or our cloud.

For most solutions, deployments are often lengthy, costly, and complex. They require many IT resource hours for planning and execution. This results in slow time-to-market and perhaps even delayed ROI. 

To help you move past this, the ForgeRock Identity Platform deploys on any cloud environment — including bring-your-own-cloud, hybrid-cloud, and multi-cloud — in preconfigured cloud installation packages of 1 million, 10 million, and 100 million identities in minutes. How does deploying a million identities in under five minutes in the cloud of your choice sound to you?

ForgeRock provides you with the ability to conduct fast, simple, high-availability (HA) deployments without sacrificing rich features and extensibility of the ForgeRock Identity Platform. Our Cloud Deployment Module is designed to protect your workloads on any cloud at scale and we support multiple public cloud environments, including Amazon Web Services, Google Cloud, and Microsoft Azure

Don’t know which cloud is right for you?   

The ForgeRock Identity Platform includes guides for benchmarking performance costs on various cloud vendor offerings. Our guides help your DevOps teams validate deployments against ForgeRock benchmark results. It also analyzes the most cost-effective solution for you based on multiple deployments and configurations.

ForgeRock helps you speed and streamline the deployment, maintenance, and management of a comprehensive identity platform with the latest DevOps technology.

With ForgeRock, your developers can build and maintain a production-grade, DevOps-enabled, referenceable, cloud-ready architecture with Kubernetes. They can also automate multi-cloud deployments — with supporting DevOps practices — using Docker for containers and Kubernetes as the orchestration platform.

To assist with the DevOps knowledge and skill-set gap, ForgeRock also includes developer-friendly documentation so your developers can easily access cloud deployment reference artifacts, deployment methodologies, reference architectures, and benchmark performance data. With DevOps and developer documentation, you can drastically reduce the time spent managing and configuring software, making it easier to meet deadlines. The result? Increased productivity and a focus on delivering business results.

The ForgeRock Identity Cloud PaaS is the market’s most comprehensive identity platform as-a-service solution.  ForgeRock liberates valuable IT staff time by taking on the DevOps responsibility of software updates and upgrades. With our cloud service you’ll be able to solve indentity’s most complex problems with the most secure and up-to-date software environment. This allows your IT teams to focus on other important work, such as accelerating time-to-market for your mission-critical internal and external apps by providing an advanced, full-featured, customizable cloud service that enables your digital transformation journey.

Also available in the United States is ForgeRock Identity Cloud Express, our SaaS solution optimized to handle common Customer Identity and Access Management (CIAM) needs quickly and easily. Built on top of the ForgeRock Identity Cloud, Express is a prescriptive subset of tools designed to enable developers to integrate future-proof identity based on modern OAuth 2.0, OpenIDConnect (OIDC), and WebAuthN standards into their customer-facing applications with minimal configuration. It’s also a service that you subscribe to and consume.

We also know that modern identity cloud environments are not an all-or-nothing scenario — in fact, the future for most organizations is not exclusively an on premises or an in-the-cloud solution, but hybrid.  For example, even if you wanted to be “fully in the cloud,” there will be a period when both the on premises and cloud solutions must be used together, in parallel. This is especially true with larger organizations. And there are scenarios where on premise must be maintained on parallel for certain critical assets for an indefinite period of time. Or the on premises solution is not entirely phased out only reduced in scope.

By offering the same codebase across a range of deployment options, ForgeRock allows you to scale with ease on your own timeline and according to your unique business demands.  Now, whether you deploy ForgeRock on premises, in a hybrid or multi-cloud environment, or natively with the ForgeRock Identity Cloud, you can solve identity’s most complex problems with a single platform.That’s the ForgeRock difference.
