With Squidex you get a managed solution that takes care of everything: Automatic updates, performance and uptime monitoring and CDN support. If you want to migrate you app you can use the integrated backup solution to move from the cloud to self hosting or back to the cloud.

Squidex's content modeling system is more adaptable. It can be adjusted to fit the demands of every business, while Strapi's is more structured and requires users to choose from a set of predefined content categories. Squidex is perfect for enterprises with a lot of content or traffic because its scalable and distributed architecture enables excellent availability and performance. While Strapi's design can be scaled, doing so may necessitate additional time and money spent on both development and physical infrastructure. Compared to Squidex, the Strapi architecture and development style may have a more complex learning curve and call for more experienced developers.
