Contentful provides content infrastructure for companies to power modern digital experiences — websites, apps, and devices. The platform is purpose-built to integrate with today's cloud-based software stack.
Under the hood, Contentful runs on AWS, using a number of different services including EC2, S3, RDS, CloudFront, and Lambda. At a high level, the architecture looks like this:
The delivery tier of this platform is deployed across multiple AWS regions, using an active/active setup to provide highly-available content for its customer base of global brands and enterprises.
Contentful also offers a number of integrations that help increase the productivity of developers using both platforms. Development teams can connect directly to AWS services from within the Contentful web app, using a library of built-in webhook templates that include S3, SQS, and Lambda.
