Parler completed migration to new "serverless" platform
In a effort to decrease reliability, increase downtime and increase user privacy, the popular right-wing social media application, Parler is migrating to a new serverless architecture to eliminate the future possibility of providers puling the plug on their systems after Amazon Web Services terminated their services in early January. With this move, Parler joins the ranks of other serverless social media applications such as Google Plus, Google Wave, Vine and Frendster.
In a written statement, Parler CEO John Matze stated "This move to a new state-of-the-art serverless architecture will allow us to support the sustained level of shrinkage we have seen while eliminating most of the costs that most companies see when hosting such a platform. Due to the unprecidented level of downtime, we can also guarentee that this new platform will be very secure as hackers can never access the platform to export user date, this protection also prevents government tampering. We are also now encrypting all passwords with military grade 'double-ROT13' encryption to keep users safe"
Parler also announced that they will be adding several new services including a IM client that relies on smoke-signals and a secure carrier-pigeon based email service in late 2023.
