Summary

As websites deliver increasing personalization, servers have struggled to keep up. Traditional dynamic web architectures are inherently inefficient because they must build HTML for every user on the fly.

This improves robustness and decreases latency while reducing costs. Read this report to learn how a Jamstack architecture differs from a traditional web server architecture.
