Serverless is an event-driven execution model that can be run for free when not used, except for the data storage charges. There is still an existing server but managed by the vendor solely. It takes care of the back-end tasks of aggregating and assessing the data for easy accessibility in the front end. In a nutshell, it is a cloud development architecture that allows developers to manage their services and applications in the servers hassle-free. Such cloud models help businesses like yours make the most of their resources.
Serverless is synonymous with zero administration, auto-scaling, pay-as-you-go model, and increased velocity. It reduces your costs as you pay only for the services you use. Adopting such a serverless development model is not only cost-efficient but also reduces the time investment for its maintenance. Hence, adopting a serverless model provides you with more flexibility, and the time it saves can be used to focus on the entity’s much more important entrepreneurial interests.
A serverless vendor provides backend services as the developers require, including server management upon their requests. These backend operations work upon the frontend queries raised by the client and organize the data as such. When the services are not in use, the costs are not computed as the algorithm is based on the actual number of resources consumed by an application.
Apps scale automatically by toggling consumption units instead of individual servers.
Now, with a flexible pricing model, you pay-as-you-go to minimize investment costs & resources.
Serverless requires servers, but it is managed by vendors, eliminating your time in server maintenance.
No more backend configurations. With some bits of code, update patch, add or release products.
