New Sugar Docs: Sugar 7 On-Site Sizing Guide and more!

Relaunched SugarCRM Support Site!

Have you had a chance to check out the new SugarCRM Support site? It is awesome. I am in there all the time looking up documentation so the new changes have really made my job easier. The new layout looks great but also organizes the content better and the search functionality has been improved.  This means I can find the information I need that much faster.

On top of that, the new Support site includes a couple of recent additions that are welcome to Sugar newbies and those Sugar Developer veterans who have been around the block.

New Sugar 7 On-Site Sizing Guide!

We have revamped our guide to deploying Sugar on premise or in a public/private cloud. We have created a simple process with supporting hard data that will allow you to “right” size the infrastructure needed to host Sugar for any usage scenario or any deployment size: Small to Enterprise.

This is also the first piece of key documentation that will be part of an upcoming Sugar Solution Architect certification. This certification is going to be really key to our SugarCRM Partners and Enterprise Customers so I am excited that this is something that is in flight right now.

Keep in mind that not only do we give you the guide but we also provide the Tools. You can use Sugar designed JMeter scenarios to verify that the deployment you designed can handle the expected load.

These resources will make anyone well equipped to deploy Sugar 7.

New Vagrant Development Environment instructions!

Quick start your Sugar development by using our new Vagrant set up instructions!  With a reasonable internet connection, this will get you up and running for local Sugar development in a matter of a few minutes.

A nice way to kick Sugar’s tires especially for those new to the LAMP stack.

    Love the new support site, especially the filter by version.
    Great content, clear explanations, many helpful examples.

    What I can’t find on this new page, which used to be in the old one, is a link to the issues database. Did I just miss it?
    I have a list of issues I track by number and have to enter the url to get there: https://web.sugarcrm.com/support/issues

    Great work on reworking it!
    Thank you.
