[HDGEM] Why use a static site generator instead of a CMS

With a CMS you need to host a complex stack of software just to serve your site, typically you need a web server, a database, an application and then some caching.

If the same content is served to every user, caching could effectively be a set of static HTML pages that are generated every time content on the site changes.

What's the point in hosting this CMS on a publicly accessible server, paying for all the complexity and increasing the attack surface area for hackers?
