What is the point of using Gunicorn when hosting a Django project on Linux VM

I have an Linux instance running on Google Compute Engine. I installed pip and django on it and cloned a Django project that I worked on locally. Like I would on localhost I ran my app like so: python3 manage.py runserver 0.0.0.0:8080, and my server was up and running with no problems. I read online on how WSGI servers are required for python apps to run well on servers however I don't see why I would need something like gunicorn to run my app

  • It's needed for concurrency and performance. – jordanm Jan 13 at 0:15
  • So django itself can run by itself, but gunicorn is just better at handling requests and performance, correct? @jordanm – Nader Besada Jan 13 at 0:16
