Of late, you may have heard this term – Serverless Computing. It is a term that has been around in the developer’s world for more than a year, and it has already caused a paradigm shift in the field of cloud technology.
In this article, we will examine the reasons that caused serverless computing to be such a major trend.
Serverless Computing is a computing code execution model where the developers are relieved of several time-consuming activities so that they can focus on other important tasks.
This trend is also known as Function as a Service (FaaS) where the cloud vendor is responsible for starting and stopping a function’s container platform, check infrastructure security, reduce maintenance efforts, improve scalability, so on and so forth at low operational costs.
The aim is to develop microservice oriented solutions to help decompose complex applications into small, easily manageable and exchangeable modules.
This brings us to the question – are there really ‘serverless’ computing services?
Of course, it is only logical that there should be servers in the background, but developers need not bother about the operation or provisioning of these servers; the entire server management is done by the cloud provider. Thus, the developer can devote more of his time …
