Building on the Kestrel™ framework is Kestrel™ CMS, a robust, loosely-coupled Content Management System written in Object-Oriented PHP.
Like Kestrel™ framework, we designed and built Kestrel™ CMS in a partnership with industry leaders like Pentagram Design, Terrain Design and BrickSF.
Based on our combined experience building custom Content Management Systems for literally thousands of database-driven Websites, we designed this scalable and robust CMS solution.
Although we've used it primarily with MySQL, Kestrel™ CMS was designed to work with any database that supports ANSI SQL and open-connectivity standards.
It leverages best-in-class OpenSource tools like Prototype, Scriptaculous, JQuery, TCPDF and CK Editor and technologies like AJAX, JSON and SOAP to provide a full Web 2.0 feature-set.
Unlike entry-level Content Management Systems such as Drupal and WordPress, Kestrel™ CMS is a loosely-coupled enterprise-level solution. This means that the design, user experience and database schema of your Website will never be constrained by the CMS in any way. Kestrel™ CMS allows your Website to scale in terms of both traffic and functionality.
Kestrel™ CMS is designed to run in the "cloud". We'll set it up and manage it for you, allowing you to focus on managing your content and your customer experience.
Like Kestrel™ framework, Kestrel™ CMS is not freely-distributed, but we provide the source code with licensed copies and we offer a single-use license for free with any custom Web Development project.
After working with various Web development companies over the years, I have to say that D3 Solutions has been by far the most knowledgeable, helpful and efficient. I will definitely be using D3 for future projects.
