“KUSANAGI 9” Supports “Movable Type” as a Foundation for CMS Integration Environment

Prime Strategy announces that KUSANAGI, the ultra-fast CMS execution machine developed and provided by Prime Strategy Co., Ltd.(President: Kengyu Nakamura; Head Office: Chiyoda-ku, Tokyo; hereinafter “Prime Strategy”), now supports Movable Type, a CMS platform provided by Six Apart Ltd. (President: Hajime Koga; Head Office: Chiyoda-ku, Tokyo; hereinafter “Six Apart”).

Background of “Movable Type” support 

A certain number of customers considering Prime Strategy’s CMS platform integration services have expressed interest in integrating their CMS platforms with Movable Type. Prime Strategy has therefore made KUSANAGI compatible with Movable Type, a CMS provided by Six Apart.

”Movable Type” is one of the leading commercial licensed packaged CMS and is used by many companies and organizations.

One of the issues that we had to solve in order to unify the operation infrastructure for our most recent client who operates multiple CMS was to make “KUSANAGI” compatible with “Movable Type”.

Although there had been experience in operating “Movable Type” on “KUSANAGI” in the past, it was necessary to build the necessary environment each time.

KUSANAGI 9 now supports Movable Type, making it easy to build the environment, configure the initial settings, and install Movable Type.

At present, “KUSANAGI 9” supports “Movable Type 7” environment construction and provisioning.

How to use 

By selecting the option for “Movable Type” when provisioning “KUSANAGI,” you can provision the environment for using “Movable Type” and even install it by specifying the file name of the package installed on the server (*). After provisioning, please follow the normal procedure to install “Movable Type”.
