If Serverless is the crown atop Amazon Web Services’ strategy, Amplify is shaping up to be the crown jewel. Amplify is an open source library for Serverless development. Amplify makes it easier to build a Serverless backend and integrate it with your front end. Amplify launched last November at re Invent 2017.
AWS Amplify makes it easy to create, configure, and implement scalable mobile and web apps powered by AWS. Amplify seamlessly provisions and manages your mobile backend and provides a simple framework to easily integrate your backend with your iOS, Android, Web, and React Native frontends. Amplify also automates the application release process of both your frontend and backend allowing you to deliver features faster.
Mobile applications require cloud services for actions that can’t be done directly on the device, such as offline data synchronization, storage, or data sharing across multiple users. You often have to configure, set up, and manage multiple services to power the backend. You also have to integrate each of those services into your application by writing multiple lines of code. However, as the number of application features grows, your code and release process becomes more complex and managing the backend requires more time.
Amplify provisions and manages backends for your mobile applications. You just select the capabilities you need such as authentication, analytics, or offline data sync and Amplify will automatically provision and manage the AWS service that powers each of the capabilities. You can then integrate those capabilities into your application through the Amplify libraries and UI components.
For these reasons, this is the service we have chosen to launch our ORI PWA solutions. It allows us a quick and easy change of ORI-PWA features, it is powered by the global AWS CDN network system and enables fast development and reliability that has no competition.
