Modern commerce applications require flexible and scalable solutions that can keep up with the rapid pace of change. MACH (Microservices-based, API-first, Cloud-native SaaS, Headless) has become increasingly popular in recent years due to its ability to provide flexibility, scalability, and agility to businesses looking to stay competitive in the digital world.

Read more about MACH in our previous blog Great MACH runs on AWS.

To build MACH solutions, companies need a reliable and robust cloud technology that can handle the dynamic demands of a microservices-based architecture.

Amazon Web Services (AWS), an Enabler member in the MACH Alliance, offers numerous benefits that make it the ideal platform for building MACH solutions:

  • Security. AWS utilizes an end-to-end approach to secure and harden its infrastructure, including physical, operational, and software measures.
  • Flexibility. AWS provides a range of over 200 fully featured services that can be used to build and deploy applications of any size and complexity.
  • Scalability. AWS allows your application to scale up or down as needed, ensuring you have access to compute and storage resources when you need them.
  • Availability. As of today, the AWS Cloud spans 99 Availability Zones within 31 geographic regions around the world, with announced plans for 15 more Availability Zones and 5 more AWS Regions—allowing you to build highly-available, global applications.
  • Cost-effectiveness. With AWS you pay only for the compute power, storage, and other resources you use, with no long-term contracts or up-front commitments.
  • Innovation. AWS is constantly innovating, providing new services and features that enable businesses to stay ahead of the competition and take advantage of emerging technologies.

AWS for MACH solutions

Since the launch of AWS in 2006, we’ve supported retailers and partners to build modern architectures to facilitate rapid change and innovation with their websites and software applications. This includes the use of microservices, APIs, and a build-for-the-cloud design.

AWS offers numerous benefits that make it the ideal platform for building MACH solutions. Its comprehensive suite of services, API-first approach, cloud-native design, and headless solution capabilities provide businesses with a reliable and robust cloud infrastructure to build, deploy, and manage their MACH applications with ease.
