A worldwide dynamic website infrastructure at the cost and simplicity of a static deployment was once an unachievable dream. That’s no longer the case with the tools and services that AWS offers like Amazon CloudFront, Amazon S3, Amazon API Gateway and AWS Lambda. During this session we will discuss a DevOps approach to managing your code repositories, code quality, continuous integration and deployments. We discuss some static website generators such as mkdocs, Jekyll, and middleman for building knowledge bases, blogs and websites in a serverless architecture.
Featuring an ideal use case for implementing a serverless architecture combining Amazon CloudFront, Amazon S3 and Amazon API Gateway; we explore how we deployed a massively scaled web application for a fraction of the cost of traditional dynamic websites leveraging a world-wide CDN. Going serverless significantly reduced operational costs and complexity because the infrastructure scales on demand without having to manually provision new servers on the ready. Finally, we share the lessons learned and the advantages of this move, leveraging Cloudnexa’s vNOC product which allows for a faster, more affordable user experience. Session sponsored by Cloudnexa.
