Well, a webserver can easily be stateless
My mind gets tangled in details many times instead of staying generalized.
In many of the posts I've read, individuals speak of creating stateless machines. One of many examples being, whip up a new/identical system in minimal amount of time. I get confused when I think, "How can a machine be stateless? Where is the data and configuration? Those can't be stateless?"
That is where I get confused. Separating the two.
Well, if you consider that the configuration is static (at least for a while) and the data could reside on another machine then it could be stateless. For instance a webserver connected to a database on another machine.
