Allows you to build and run applications and services without thinking about servers.
The AWS Serverless Platform
AWS provides a set of fully managed services that you can use to build and run serverless applications. Serverless applications don’t require provisioning, maintaining, and administering servers for backend components such as compute, databases, storage, stream processing, message queueing, and more. You also no longer need to worry about ensuring application fault tolerance and availability. Instead, AWS handles all of these capabilities for you. This allows you to focus on product innovation while enjoying faster time-to-market.
What is Serverless?
Serverless is the native architecture of the cloud that enables you to shift more of your operational responsibilities to AWS, increasing your agility and innovation. Serverless allows you to build and run applications and services without thinking about servers. It eliminates infrastructure management tasks such as server or cluster provisioning, patching, operating system maintenance, and capacity provisioning. You can build them for nearly any type of application or backend service, and everything required to run and scale your application with high availability is handled for you.
Why Use Serverless?
Serverless enables you to build modern applications with increased agility and lower total cost of ownership. Building serverless applications means that your developers can focus on their core product instead of worrying about managing and operating servers or runtimes, either in the cloud or on-premises.
Benefits of Serverless
No server management
There is no need to provision or
maintain any servers. There is
no software or runtime to install,
maintain, or administer.
Your application can be scaled
automatically or by adjusting its
capacity through toggling the units
of consumption (e.g. throughput,
memory) rather than units of
Pay for value
Pay for consistent throughput
or execution duration rather
than by server unit.
Automated high availability
Serverless provides built-in
availability and fault tolerance.
You don’t need to architect for
these capabilities since the
services running the application
provide them by default.
