Simple websites typically consist of a single web server which runs either a Content Management System (CMS), such as WordPress, an eCommerce application, such as Magento, or a development stack, like LAMP. The software makes it easy to build, update, manage, and serve the content of your website.
Simple websites are best for low to medium trafficked sites with multiple authors and more frequent content changes, such as marketing websites, content websites or blogs. They provide a simple starting point for website which might grow in the future. While typically low cost, these sites require IT administration of the web server and are not built to be highly available or scalable beyond a few servers.
Single page web apps offer native or desktop app-like performance. They offer all the static website benefits (low cost, high levels of reliability, no server adminstration, and scalability to handle enterprise-level traffic) with dynamic functionality and blazing fast performance.
Static websites are very low cost, provide high-levels of reliability, require no server administration, and scale to handle enterprise-level traffic with no additional work.
Enterprise websites include very popular marketing and media sites, as well as social, travel, and other application-heavy websites. Enterprise websites need to dynamically scale resources and be highly available to support the most demanding and highly trafficked websites.
Enterprise websites use multiple services and often span multiple data centers (called Availability Zones). Enterprise websites built on provide high levels of availability, scalability, and performance, but require higher amounts of management and administration than static or simple websites.
