In this chapter, we've seen that there are quite a few options for deploying an AMP site. For some, AMP will be the whole solution, while for others, AMP is just one part of a larger web presence. Before you deploy AMP, you should consider how it will fit in with the rest of your web properties. Just how you integrate AMP will depend on your needs. However, the range of possibilities should be taken as a positive because it means that AMP, as a publishing format, is flexible enough to be used in pretty much any web publishing scenario you can think of, while still delivering the benefits we've seen throughout this book.

At this point, we've covered as much of AMP as we can within a volume of this length, and what remains in the next chapter is to ponder where AMP will go from here, and what else it might have to offer in the future.
