Serverless Architecture – A New Paradigm Shift in the Cloud World
Reduce infrastructure cost by ~80% and build an agile IT enterprise architecture.
Serverless architecture is about building and running applications and services without having to manage the infrastructure. Server management is completely owned by cloud platform providers like AWS, Azure etc.

Serverless architecture is suitable for event-driven scenarios and low cost microservices architecture.
In serverless architecture, there is an option to pay for the fraction of resource times actually consumed. It enables quick architecture deployment & parallel execution of cloud computing functions.
Serverless architecture can be implemented for web application development,
real-time processing, building mobile backends.
You can build serverless web applications and backends using Amazon API Gateway, Amazon S3, and Amazon DynamoDB to handle web, mobile, Internet of Things (IoT), and chatbot requests.
Developers can build mobile backends using Lambda and API Gateway to authenticate and process API requests.
Faster product prototyping & quick setup of multiple development environments.
Developers can build services from small functions. A HTTPS/HTTP request call can invoke these code blocks. Billing for some of these functions need not be invoked frequently and triggered only when the need arises. This data is stored in a distinct environment that synchronizes with the active production environment.
