Disrupts WordPress Application Hosting With Instant Scaling, Unlimited Sites and Pay-As-You-Use Pricing
AWS-Based Environment Provides Boundless Scaling with No Plans or Start-up Fees
Full, Interactive Serverless Feature Set for Dynamic Sites
Liberates WordPress Users from the Burden of the Webhost
Pagely, the flexible managed hosting service for business-critical WordPress projects, today announced NorthStack™, its 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, pay-as-you-go environment.
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 mid-market 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 fees. NorthStack frees clients to pay only for what they use in regards to computing 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:
The ability to deploy WordPress, Headless WordPress with React/Vue front-ends, or static sites with ease
Independently metered CPU, database, storage and data transfer
High availability [HA] with a multi-availability zone, globally distributed network routing and best practice “Blue-Green” deployment process
Clients will be able to decide on the maximum number of PHP workers to control their spend
Many of the existing benefits of Pagely’s full-service VPS offering
Pagely is a safe, full-featured hosting environment backed by decades of expertise. An entire hosting tech stack built and monitored by one of the industry’s most experienced WordPress teams, NorthStack will live alongside Pagely’s full-service VPS offerings.
“NorthStack removes some of WordPress’s biggest obstacles,” said Pagely CTO Joshua Eichorn. “Security-wise NorthStack has the privacy of a VPS without the wasted spend of over-provisioning and having to spin up your own instances of AWS. It truly is the north star of the future of WordPress.”
