“AVOID INFRASTRUCTURE, GO SERVERLESS”
You’ve written a service. Next step is to decide where it will run, how to scale it out and to ensure it remains secured. Who on your team has the skill set to build and manage the infrastructure needed to make your service a success? Wouldn’t it be great if you could pass an application to an automated service that managed the infrastructure needed to serve it at scale?
Welcome to Serverless.
Serverless is a new cloud computing trend best described as a Function as a Service or FaaS. This doesn’t mean servers are no longer used, there will always be servers, however you no longer need to interact or even think about them.
Less Server More Code
AWS’ main advantages are its Elasticity and Infrastructure as Code services. But you still need to manage the instances and worry about their maintenance and operations, this slows you down. The AWS Lambda service removes infrastructure from the equation for serving and scaling applications. Now you can spend less time managing infrastructure and more time implementing technology to help your business.

AWS Lambda is Amazon Web Services’ serverless computing platform that runs code in response to events. The service manages the compute resources necessary to run the code and can scale from a few requests per day to thousands per second. Functions can be accessed through the AWS API Gateway to provide an HTTP interface, called directly via the CLI and SDKs or triggered from event hooks built into other AWS services.
