What is Gatsby?

Gatsby is a full-stack frontend framework designed to present everything needed to create a web site or web application. It aims to help developers build websites that are fast, flexible, and secure right out of the box using React. The user can also deploy the site on Gatsby Cloud to provide a better development experience.

Gatsby automates code splitting, image optimization, inlining critical styles, lazy-loading, prefetching resources, and performs other tasks to ensure the user's site is fully optimized, without manual tuning. Gatsby’s serverless rendering generates static HTML at build time. So there is no server and no reachable database equals no malicious requests, DDOS attacks, or accidental exposure. A Gatsby site’s attack surface is nonexistent.

And the vendor states that hosting Gatsby website on Gatsby Cloud, the company's hosting service, gives access to a secure, scalable, and performant Edge Network, specifically built to run the best Gatsby experiences. Gatsby Cloud has a global edge network that can deliver optimized content to visitors around the world, using SSL, encryption at multiple layers, and a CDN powered by Fastly.

Gatsby Cloud uses intelligent optimization on a globally distributed real-time edge network to reduce the time spent waiting for updates to actually get deployed to end user. Combined with Rollback capabilities for each atomic deployment users may act with the confidence neeeded to deploy hundreds of times a day.

Additionally, the Gatsby Concierge service includes a partnership with a team of Gatsby experts to optimize, support, and ultimately to help build the best Gatsby experience. Whether the service is used to help with build times, website performance and slow loading times, or for a more confident onboarding process augmented with the help of a professional team, there is a Gatsby Concierge program that aims to help the user get the most out of Gatsby.
