There is no such thing as a single best tool. But, here at Initprise, we feel that Serverless architecture gets us pretty close – especially for startups!
High Availability: AWS serverless services are “assumed to be 100%”. AWS is the number one cloud provider in the world, powering more web traffic than any other cloud service. You can count on the same level of availability that you enjoy on most of your favorite applications such as Netflix. Concentrate on taking care of your customers. The application won’t fail them.
High Scalability: AWS has no practical limits on serverless scalability. The same services used to deploy your application are the same used to power Amazon and many other top performing sites on the Internet. You can focus on growing customers without any concern of if your application can handle the traffic. It can.
Cost: One of the biggest benefits for startups is the billing model for serverless. Serverless hosting costs are pay-per-request. Unlike server-full deployments where you accrue costs for every hour that a server is running (regardless of if there is traffic). AWS offers 1,000,000+ requests per month for free. This means, for most startups, your hosting costs for a highly availability and highly scalable infrastructure will be single digits.
Fully Automated Boilerplate (CICD): Our infrastructure is deployed with a single command. This includes a WordPress marketing site with a Genesis theme, A ReactJS single page application, and a serverless architecture for the API. We include several themes and plugins with each WordPress installation. We also include AWS Cognito for robust Authentication and Authorization, and common functionality required by most startups. You get this for FREE. It’s hard to put a price tag on the scope of this boilerplate, but we believe that we are reducing development time by at least 1 month and up to $50k. We continuously update our boilerplate as we identify opportunities to reduce development time. This is all for the purpose of getting you to market and to revenue as quickly as possible.
