We would be covering the evolution of overall infrastructure design to this new concept known as “Serverless” architecture.
If we go by the literal meaning, it sounds like a service that can serve without a server.
But that’s not the entire case here, When you deploy the application using Serverless Architecture it means that you do not own the server but the layer to allow your service to serve.
If compare this to our daily lives, You get services like water, electricity delivered to your place. You use those services as per your need and get billed based on usage. You don’t concern yourself on how it’s reaching you or what is the underlying architecture to get that service reached to you.
What is Serverless Computing?
Serverless is the native architecture of the cloud that enables you to run your services with back-end services provided by the cloud on an as-used basis.
A serverless provider would allow you to write and deploy the code without worrying about the underlying infrastructure.
Benefits of Serverless Computing
- No Server Management
There is no need to provision or manage any servers. Not worrying about managing your application run time and its patches to ensure your application running smoothly.
- Flexible Scaling
Your application can be scaled automatically or by adjusting its capacity by toggling the units of consumption.
- No Idle Pricing
You will not need to pay anything if there were no traffic. No cold servers will be maintained. Servers can be spawned milliseconds when the traffic starts.
- Faster Time to Market
Serverless architecture can significantly cut time to market. Instead of needing a complicated deployment process to roll out bug fixes and new features, developers can add and modify code on a piecemeal basis.
