Performance & Scalability

Liferay DXP supports clustering at any combination of tiers (presentation, service, business logic, and database), advanced caching (e.g. Ehcache), and performance monitoring support (JMX, Java profiling, and more).


Government-grade encryption such as DES, MD5, SHA and RSA is built-in. Additionally, we support pluggable authentication, LDAP authentication, email verification, granular permissioning, and session management.


Liferay DXP ships with Elasticsearch for development and non-prod environments. This allows configurable faceted searches across assets and content. Liferay Enterprise Search is an add-on option providing out-of-the-box connectivity and support for Liferay and Elastic components as well as one stop support for both technologies. For those who prefer it, Solr can be configured for use with Liferay DXP through an app found in our marketplace.
