What is Serverless?

Serverless is an auto-scaling, cloud computing model that provides backend services on an as-used basis. A company obtains backend services from their cloud provider and only pays for their computations.

A company does not need to worry about infrastructure when developers are writing and deploying their codes. All physical infrastructures and servers will be managed by your serverless provider in the backend.

Advantages

Business Perspective:

  • Cost-effective implementation because data storage depends on the number of function executions
  • Decreasing cost of hiring backend infrastructure engineers dramatically
  • Smaller deployable units provide faster delivery of features to the market
Advantages

Developer Perspective:

  • Eliminating the need for a complicated deployment process
  • Assures developers to scale up their code stress-free
  • Developing simple functions to independently perform single purposes
Advantages

User Perspective:

  • Rapidly rolling out new features to customers
  • Positive opportunity available to easily provide their own storage backend
  • Efficient offline experience by offering client-side caching

Why Serverless?

Serverless allows you to focus on what is important for your business operations.

Server Type

Physical Server

A physical server, also known as a 'bare-metal server,' is a single-tenant computer server that is designated to a single user.

Server Type

Virtual Machine

Virtual machines are based on computer architectures and provide functionality of a physical server. Their implementations may involve specialized hardware, software, or a combination.
Server Type

Containers

Containers are a solution to the problem of how to get software to run reliably when moved from one computing environment to another.

Server Type

Serverless

Serverless is a Cloud Computing execution model where the provider acts as a server, dynamically managing the allocation of machine resources.
