Outline

Managing an AEM site typically requires leveraging caching heavily to get the scalability required. However, careful attention is needed to cache invalidation when publishing/deploying to avoid site performance or availability issues.

By moving page rendering “offline” and hosting sites statically it’s possible to:

  • Improve site performance
  • Increases scalability/availability
  • Reduce operations effort
  • Limit security surface area to protect
  • Retain AEM authoring tools

This talk will compare some practical ways to publish static sites with AEM without sacrificing your sites’ dynamic features by embracing serverless technology.
