While most boilerplates offer just standalone features, SaaS Boilerplate gives you a developer-friendly, AWS‑based scalable infrastructure and CI/CD

Infra as a code

All infrastructure resources are provisioned and managed automatically, so there’s no need for manual configuration of any cloud services. Run a simple script, and the working application and development infrastructure will be set up for you.

Pre-configured CI/CD

Release a multi-environment system automatically for every change introduced in your codebase in minutes. Fast and frequent deployments allow you to detect and fix bugs much quicker and earlier.

AWS services _

We selected several AWS cloud services that are designed to be easily integrated with each other. It makes SaaS Boilerplate easy to deploy, customize and scale!

Performance

Performance and ease of scaling the system is one of the key components that we focus on. It is why the backend is configured to run behind an Application Load Balancer, and the frontend is served fully through a CDN out of the box!
