Webiny: The best serverless CMS

What is a CMS

Without actually developing a website, a content management system (CMS) is software that assists in the creation and administration of information. You either don't deal with code at all or don't write the entire program from scratch. You may concentrate totally on the content and its presentation because the CMS takes care of all the essential infrastructure tasks, such as producing pages and storing photos, etc.

We now have three different CMS types:


What is Serverless CMS?

A hybrid or decoupled CMS, commonly referred to as serverless, is something in between. The headless CMS is more suited for developers while the conventional CMS is more user-friendly for marketers. Serverless content management systems, in turn, provide developers the flexibility to send content across channels through API in the finest traditions of headless CMS; concurrently, marketers may profit from using the user interface and user experience as it was with good ol' conventional CMS.

In brief, a serverless CMS combines the front-end components of a standard CMS with an API-driven headless architecture. It combines the best elements of the two methods stated above.

About Webiny

Webiny does more than manage your content. It also enables you to create and deploy websites and forms, centrally manage all of your projects, and use complex procedures to enhance organization-wide collaboration.


We want to enable anyone who wants to self-host their own CMS using Webiny for a fraction of the cost of other alternatives on the market.

Webiny does this in a variety of ways:

Infrastructure without servers

  • When compared to running on virtual computers, it saves your infrastructure costs by 60-80%.
  • It cuts the required devops work by 40-60%.
  • It decreases the possibility of peak events scaling too slowly.
  • It guarantees a considerably better level of security best practises.

Control Panel for Webiny

  • It also simplifies management and lowers the operating costs of running a self-hosted system.
  • It offers a monitoring system for tracking infrastructure costs and performance.
  • It lowers the risk of deploying fixes and code modifications.

Serverless Infrastructure

Webiny CMS works on top of the infrastructure provided by serverless services. Serverless architecture has several advantages over more traditional infrastructure such as virtual machines or containers:

When opposed to employing VMs, cloud infrastructure costs up to 80% less.
Savings of up to 60% on devops efforts to administer and maintain the solution
Based on fault-tolerant services
Architecture that is highly scalable

No-Code Suite

Developers make up a lower fraction of the entire workforce in most firms. They should not be in charge of duties such as adding and altering components on a landing page. It is preferable to spend their time developing new features and capabilities for your goods.

Webiny includes a number of no-code products. Page Builder, for example, allows non-technical people to construct webpages with total control over the design and page components. Simultaneously, the platform handles all optimizations for various viewports and devices automatically under the hood.


Why handle many CMS installations when you can have only one?

The answer to this problem is multi-tenancy.

One of Webiny CMS's main features is multi-tenancy. It enables you to operate several instances of Webiny CMS from the same code base with complete data separation between instances. There is just one instance to operate, regardless of whether you have 10 or 100 websites, making it a significant cost-saving benefit.
