Jamstack is a modern approach to develop and deploy websites at scale. This approach decouples the frontend from the backend and databases. The frontend is prebuilt into highly optimized static pages and assets using a Markup language such as HTML. Being static, these assets can be deployed on an edge platform for faster delivery. The backend applications that generate dynamic content are usually accessed using APIs, making pages rich and personalized.
Vendor Lock-In. Sounds scary, right? Vendor Lock-In is a term for the concern expressed by many enterprises moving their data to cloud networks that they are being “locked-in” to the cloud platform hosting. Cloud computing is an incredibly competitive industry, and giants like AWS and Azure don’t really want to share their customers with their peers.
The need for agile applications, on-demand scalability, high performance, and round-the-clock availability have all driven increased adoption of cloud computing, Edge Computing, and serverless architecture. Despite the benefits of these technologies, some companies are still hesitant to adopt them due to the fear of vendor lock-in. Knowing how to mitigate the risk of lock-in can help companies avoid unexpected costs and complications as they migrate to the edge and the cloud.
As today’s applications grow increasingly complex through the use of microservices architecture, integration of third-party services, and deployment in edge, cloud, hybrid, and multicloud environments, application resource management becomes a challenge all on its own. Edge Orchestrator can reduce these management complexities by automating processes and providing a single pane of glass to view and control resources.
At Azion, we take pride in our ability to offer high-performing, low latency serverless capabilities to businesses of all sizes. We couldn’t have done any of this without our sophisticated orchestration technology, which manages our complex infrastructure and has enabled us to automate the daily maintenance of our ICT. It’s been the backbone of our company for years, but we only recently realized that a tool this powerful should be put directly into the hands of our customers.
