Pagely Intros NorthStack
October 22, 2018
is a new managed serverless application platform built on the AWS stack.
In an unprecedented first, WordPress users can now build and run
dynamic, interactive websites with plugins in a serverless,
NorthStack is available immediately in early beta on a limited basis.
General availability of NorthStack will be announced in the first
quarter of 2019.
“Traditional hosting plans stick users with a lose-lose proposition,”
said Pagely CEO Joshua Strebel. “If demand is high, performance suffers.
If demand is low, the hosting company pockets the extra. NorthStack
frees clients to pay only for what they use in regards to compute
resources, database, bandwidth, storage, and all other essential
elements of a successful WordPress site. For the first time, WordPress
users are free to choose their overhead, instead of being beholden to
the whims of the host.”
Dynamic, Serverless and Elasticity Scalable
NorthStack features boundless scalability with no plan change, restart
or customer intervention required. Instead of relegating the serverless
environment to static WordPress sites, a common trade-off for automated
scaling, NorthStack retains all of the dynamic features that make
WordPress such an effective site platform. Users can see their resource
consumption via real-time usage metrics and decide for themselves
whether to serve the site more slowly and pay less, or serve it faster
and pay more.
Additional features include:
ability to deploy WordPress, Headless WordPress with React/Vue
front-ends, or static sites with ease.
•Independently metered CPU,
