Have you heard of JAMstack?
To understand how this technology works, all you need to perceive is how static web pages work.
Since nothing is executed on the web server, a static site doesn’t require an industrial-powered web hosting with a database. That being said, many static websites are distributed on CDNS (content delivery networks), where content is mirrored on multiple servers with the idea to be delivered expeditiously to users everywhere.
It is noteworthy that Jamstack was conceived as part of the “static web” movement, which appeared in 2010 opposing the traditional model of how a website functions.

What are the benefits of JAMstack?
The nature of JAMstack is static, which improves scalability and security as static websites have a small attack vector. The architecture also provides a lot of functionality which currently happens in the user’s browser.
A JAMstack app gives you a generated HTML rather than rendering live on the server. This improves loading times. However, one of the most appealing qualities of this approach is the ease to pull content from third-party APIs.
JAMstack CMS (content management system)
It is also noteworthy that, since the CMS has an accessible API, multiple web pages will be able to access it with an ease. For example, if you have created separate mobile, desktop and smartwatch versions of a single website, all these versions can access the same content stored in the CMS.
