New to the JAMstack? Read on to learn if the JAMstack approach is right for you and your project. If you’re curious about how Stackery helps teams deploy JAMstack architectures with AWS drop down for the details.
The JAMstack embodies many aspects of modern web development including managed services and CI/CD. Let’s dive into what is the JAMstack and how it works.
The JAM of JAMstack:
As you can tell there are a lot of other components that go into making a site or application using the JAMstack, namely git, static site generators, content delivery networks, hosting, and backend infrastructure.
While the JAMstack is rising in popularity, and with good reason--It may not be right for your team.
Reasons the JAMstack may not work:
To ensure the long term success of your JAMstack project consider:
Stackery enables teams to architect the JAMstack with our Design Canvas and deploy it through our CI/CD pipeline to AWS managed services like S3 & CloudFront.
Stackery helps you visually design an architecture, including your website build (SSG), CDN, APIs (including your headless CMS or e-commerce store), data (S3). The Design Canvas then generates the AWS SAM & CloudFormation templates necessary to launch out of the AWS Management Console.
Stackery keeps teams in control of their website (and destiny?). Our platform helps you manage your infrastructure on AWS - we don’t host or run your infrastructure. We leave that to AWS. We just make it easier.
We make it easy to launch a JAMstack website quickly and securely. We like to call this JAMstackery. Learn more>>
By coupling your JAMstack with the wide range of AWS managed services Stackery enables teams to build more sophisticated applications. Need to connect your app to Cognitio? Done with a drag and drop using our low-code Design Canvas. Design, not just write your IaC to deliver better, more sophisticated apps - faster.
By placing your website (your JAMstack) within your other serverless architecture you gain a more resilient, scalable, and sophisticated application.
We also work best with AWS.
Stackery connects to your AWS account to manage services and billing. You will be able to develop and deploy your application in Stackery while easily leveraging the multitude of services provided by AWS.
Our platform helps you manage your infrastructure on AWS - we don’t host or run your infrastructure. We leave that up to AWS. We just make it easier.
We are proud to be an Advanced Tier Technology Partner in the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Partner Network (APN). We are also very honored to have two recognized Serverless Heroes. We continue to collaborate with the AWS team to meet the strict quality and accreditation standards to deliver applications that adhere to the Well-Architected Serverless Framework. AWS recognizes that we offer the best solution for AWS customers to develop, deliver and manage serverless applications. Simply put, we help teams navigate and get the most out of AWS.
Our pricing model is pretty simple. If you’re a single developer and only have a single project you can use Stackery for free on our Developer plan-this will get your stack launched and your website live. You’ll then see whatever costs are incurred from your website (CloudFront, S3 buckets, CodeBuild jobs) on your AWS bill. Because the JAMstack approach emphasizes pre-built content delivered to a CDN, upkeep costs are minimal! Learn more>>
Stackery helps you understand the real value and cost of your application. Unlike other providers that charge you concurrent build fees or hidden costs based on usage, Stackery has straightforward pricing based on deployed projects or seats. We leave incremental costs to AWS.
