1 Click Deployment Framework for Mendix Application on Public Cloud(s)

Mendix is the low-code platform with the fastest global growth, did you know that? This blog finds you if you’re moving to Mendix. Mendix cloud deployment will be discussed in this blog article.

The 1-Click Deployment Framework for Mendix applications on public cloud(s) simplifies and accelerates the deployment process. With just a single click, you can seamlessly deploy your Mendix applications onto public cloud platforms, unlocking the benefits of scalability, reliability, and cost-efficiency. This framework eliminates the complexities of traditional deployment methods and empowers organizations to launch their Mendix applications quickly and efficiently on the public cloud, enabling faster time-to-market and enhanced agility. Experience the ease and convenience of deploying your Mendix applications with a single click on the public cloud.

Let’s look at a use case and the remedy:

  • Mendix MPC customers are unable to employ a flexible custom build process. The Mendix native build pipeline does not let clients implement their own build process because Mendix MPC maintains total control over CI/CD.
  • The customer won’t have any control over the application, infrastructure, or security in Mendix MPC. They are forced to pick and choose which security features to use.


  • Deploying a Mendix application in any public cloud provides one-click deployment, total control over the infrastructure, high availability, and built-in security features. The one-click deployment framework for Indium is reliable and has been tested across multiple clouds with minimal to no adjustments.
  • With the most flexible and secure cloud computing environment currently available, such as AWS/Azure/GCP, this architecture gives you the control and assurance you need to safely manage your organization.
  • You can become more adept at upholding fundamental security and compliance standards, such as those relating to data localization, protection, and confidentiality, with the help of public clouds.

The rigidity of this structure was examined in this blog post using AWS, the current market leader in public cloud adoption. We can see how the customer has the freedom to choose the infrastructure and the application to be deployed thanks to the powerful integration of the trio Jenkins, Mendix, and AWS.

How to use our own framework to deploy the Mendix application.

1. Set up a VPC with two availability zones and private and public subnets.

2. To secure the nodes and application while preventing external connections, private subnets were created for Kubernetes nodes.

3. We can utilize CloudWatch and Grafana for log monitoring.

4. Configuring Jenkins to automate the CI/CD pipeline.

5. Integrating Jenkins with the Mendix team server.

6. Create a Docker image using the Mendix Docker file and our application code.

7. Upload the Docker image to artefacts like the Docker Hub, ECR, or ACR.

8. Create YAML Scripts to deploy the application. These scripts pass parameters like the database host name and password and the Mendix admin password as secrets using a secrets manager.

9. Using YAML, deploy the docker image in EKS and get the saved images from the artefacts.

10. For high availability and dependability, use EKS’s load balancer, replica sets, and autoscaling.

Architectural Overview:

Jenkins begins downloading code from Team servers after a developer clicks a single button, using Mendix docker files and source code to create a docker image that is then used to deploy in Elastic Kubernetes Service in AWS. 

Benefits of Mendix Application Deployment on Public Cloud

 1. Giving the client the ability to take charge of the CI/CD process.

2. The isolated Kubernetes environment allows users to create and administer their own cloud Virtual Private Cloud (VPC), with the potential to increase security.

3. The application auto-scales loads based on traffic and is highly accessible.

4. Logs are simple to monitor, and setting warnings for high CPU usage is simple.
