Choose Liferay EE for:
A Liferay Portal Enterprise Edition (EE) is configured for enterprise environments requiring support for redundancy, failover, and load balancing, ensuring maximum uptime for your Liferay portal.
With the use of industry standard, government-grade encryption technologies, Liferay Portal EE is one of the market's most secure portal platforms. Additional security patches are delivered via regular security packs. Liferay adheres to the Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP) Top 10 recommended best practices.
Liferay Portal EE is tuned against several major application servers and databases for optimal performance. Liferay Portal EE is custom-configured to meet the speed and scalability needs of large enterprise deployments in production-ready form.
To ensure a stable product for enterprise customers, features are frozen with each version of Liferay Portal EE but kept current with security and bug fixes through fixpacks, eliminating the risk of new defects being introduced by new features. Each Liferay Portal EE service pack is thoroughly tested using additional quality assurance processes to ensure that the product becomes more stable with each release.
What is Liferay Portal Enterprise Edition (EE)?
Liferay Portal Enterprise Edition is the commercial version of Liferay's open source portal that is an ideal choice for business, performance, or security critical applications. Liferay EE is designed for mission critical environments and specifically optimized for high performance and large scale implementations. EE is also security hardened and regularly threat tested. EE patches and unlimited developer licenses are included standard with any purchase.
A Liferay Portal Enterprise Subscription is the service that provides direct access to engineering-grade technical support, security and bug hot fixes, training and support tools, and additional features within Liferay. A Liferay Enterprise Support Subscription can easily pay for itself in terms of time-to-production, stability and scale, achieving special customizations and in guaranteeing the most stable and secure Liferay implementation available.
Is the Liferay EE code base different?
Liferay Portal Enterprise Edition offers a more hardened, stable version of Liferay Portal CE that guarantees ongoing long-term support with a combined License and Support Subscription. Liferay Portal EE is delivered to provide the stability and assurance required for enterprise production environments. The Liferay EE APIs and code are functionally similar to CE, but in many cases the EE implementation has been tuned, secured, and optimized for commercial grade performance and stability. CE code will typically work with EE, but it is recommended that customizations be built using the corresponding EE SDK for best results.
Liferay Portal EE is made available under a commercial license. Users benefit from the same high quality features and innovation that result from ten years of valuable user feedback from the community but with added legal protection and guarantees.
Will I have access to the source for Liferay Portal EE?
Yes! A unique key benefit of Liferay EE is that the framework is designed so that most any portion can be extended or over ridden with a "hook" plugin. You get the portal source as part of the developer resources so that you can create your own hooks and other customizations. And, since you have complete visibility into the entire portal code base, you are not limited to standard API methods to achieve a special result.
