No server management
_Serverless in Transition Technologies PSC
SERVERLESS is the approach of creating software or architecture where specific public cloud services are activated by events and related infrastructure is a responsibility of the provider.
According to specialists, this solution is the closest to the concept of the cloud, which is being spread around the world.
Why? Systems built this way are highly scalable, highly available, don’t require devoting time to server management (despite the name, the servers are obviously there) and, most of all, you pay only for the resources that have actually been used.
How does it work? Most often code is deployed inside containers, which are activated in response to specific events. These could be http/https requests, database events, alerts, cron tasks and many, many more. Such code is transmitted to the provider in the form of a function, which is why this model is called FaaS, that is Function as a Service. Depending on the cloud provider, the service may take different names. In Amazon Web Services it is Amazon Lambda, in Microsoft Azure – Azure Functions and in Google Cloud Platform – Google Functions.
