What Coherence does in your AWS account

Updating our docs with a deep dive on how we use AWS
January 30, 2023

We often get some version of the question “what exactly are you doing in my cloud account?” from both our prospective and existing customers. So we figured we should document what exactly Coherence is doing and why for both our AWS and GCP flavors. 

As a reminder, our goal is to provide development teams with a world class development experience without the headache of building and maintaining their own development tooling. In some ways we like to think about it as a Vercel-like experience with the power and scalability afforded by the public clouds, AWS in this instance.

In our docs you’ll learn about which resources we’re managing for the following purposes:

  • Networking
  • Builds and Deploys
  • Data Storage
  • Container Orchestration
  • Observability and Monitoring
  • Security and Configuration

In summary, Coherence's architecture was designed to take advantage of the scalability, reliability, and security features of AWS services. We do the work of configuring, stitching and enhancing these services so you can focus on building your product.
