One of the most common questions we get at Scrivito, is about our serverless approach. We have had quite a few eye rolls and plenty of head scratching. Everyone knows the internet is built on the back of millions of servers, so how can we be serverless?
“Serverless computing allows you to build and run applications and services without thinking about servers. Serverless applications don't require you to provision, scale, and manage any servers.” – Amazon
Well, when we describe Scrivito as serverless, we’ve built a CMS which takes care of many of the common barriers you’d face when getting your website or application online (and keeping it there).
In the good old days, if you wanted to launch a website or application, you would likely have to pre-purchase a hosting resource from a provider. You’d have to think about how that resource will scale, then set up load balancing for when you have large volumes of traffic, determine where you’ll store your databases and how to scale those solutions and so much more. You were responsible for updates and security patches and many administrative functions. Then, only once you had all this setup, you’d be able to get online and start writing your application. Thankfully, providers like AWS brought us cloud technology which removed the many barriers above, so you could get live and develop.
Serverless technology removes the need for you to think about servers when getting set up and going live, you can just focus on running code and let Scrivito handle the rest.
If you want to take advantage of what serverless technology has to offer, you can experience all of the benefits by using Scrivito to power your website.
